    Description

    State of Massachusetts Bay £150 Treasury Certificate Advance Pay to Officers, Second Moiety at 6% Interest July 20, 1779. Anderson MA 19. Very Fine. This cancelled certificate was issued to a Revolutionary War officer as advance pay. Numbered 155, it is well printed and well signed. This is the scarcer variety, printed at the right, "Advance Pay to Officers, second Moiety" with moiety meaning "half." The design includes the pine tree surrounded by a rattlesnake emblem engraved by Nathaniel Hurd. A handwritten notation in black ink along the top margin appears to read "L Felt." These certificates are listed as Low R6, 21 to 30 known, in the Anderson reference.

    Estimate: $800 - up.
