One of original colonies
Became state: February 6, 1788

With its long history, this state has a large number of certificate varieties recorded. While there is a concentration of certificates among very large, and old companies, there are also some very scarce companies with only a handful of certificates known.

A large number of engraved variations of this seal are known on stocks and bonds. All seem to contain the central elements of the Indian holding a bow in his right hand. Above is a right arm holding a broad sword. A long ribbon below holds the words Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem (By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty.)
