Recently, two sheets of obsoletes surfaced on the Puget Sound Co-operative Colony. The sheets were 35-subject with the following breakdown by denomination: 5 cents (10 - these are postage stamp-size chits), 25 cents (9), 50 cents (8), $1 (3), $5 (3), $20 (2). The note offered below is from one of the sheets. The colony took up quarters near Port Angeles, Washington Territory in June, 1887 giving the notes Territorial status (they are not marked as such).
