DescriptionState of Massachusetts-Bay Treasury Certificate 6% Interest Due March 1, 1781 with Hurd's Sword-In-Hand Vignette. Anderson MA 10. Very Fine. This attractive and desirable certificate is numbered 6. These notes were issued to redeem Massachusetts' bills of credit. The wonderful Sword-In-Hand vignette at upper left, engraved by Hurd, certainly adds to the appeal of this piece of Colonial fiscal history. Nathaniel Hurd (1730-77) is considered by many to be the first recognized engraver in the United States. Hurd also participated in the engraving of the Massachusetts October 18, 1776 Colonial issue. He was primarily a bookplate engraver however. Gardner's signature has been crossed out as a form of cancellation. These notes are listed as R4, 76 to 200 known, in The Price of Liberty.
Estimate: $700 - up.
