Banknote: Maryland, July 26, 1775, back

The back of the bill depicts America and Britannia sharing an olive branch of peace, and the motto Pax Triumphis Potior (Peace is preferable to victory). The name on the left side of the bill, T SPARROW, identifies Thomas Sparrow as the engraver of this woodcut. The initials FG on the bottom left corner stand for the printer Frederick Green.
