DescriptionState of Massachusetts Bay £150 Treasury Certificate Advance Pay to Officers, Second Moiety at 6% Interest July 20, 1779. Anderson MA 19. Very Fine. Numbered 14, this cancelled certificate is well printed and well signed. These were issued to Revolutionary War officers as advance pay. This is the scarcer variety, printed at the right, "Advance Pay to Officers, second Moiety." Moiety is a long-outdated formal word meaning simply "half." The rattlesnake surrounded pine tree vignette engraved by Nathaniel Hurd at upper left adds to the eye appeal of this piece. Handwritten notations on either side of the advance pay line at right appear to read "Major Perkins." Listed as Low R6 in Anderson's The Price of Liberty, indicating 21 to 30 known.
Estimate: $800 - up.
