New Jersey

One of original colonies
Became state: Dec 18, 1787

Like the adjacent two states with largest numbers of known railroads, New Jersey has a tremendous number of identified certificates. Like both Pennsylvania and New York, the New Jersey state seal frequently appears on railroad certificates.

With long use and strong allegorical elements, this seal shows wide variations on stocks and bonds. All versions seem to show the main elements. Central shield with three plows Standing Liberty at left with staff and Liberty cap, Prosperity (aka Ceres, Plenty) at right holds cornucopia. Horse head and helmet above shield. "Liberty and Prosperity, 1776" on ribbon below.
