    Treasury Tax Collector's Certificates. Fourteen Examples dated between November 1782 and January 1783. Anderson MA 38. Fine-Very Fine or Better. The serial numbers on these fourteen examples range from 98 to 580. All of the certificates were signed by Thomas Ivers as treasurer. All are cancelled either with penned "X"s over his signature or with large ink smears covering his signature. Many of these examples are very boldly embossed. Several of these notes are endorsed on the back. Anderson mentions that minor printing variations exist and a quick perusal reveals "Treasury=Office" on some of the earlier examples and "Treasurer's=Office" on later numbered pieces within this lot. These are listed as R5 in The Price of Liberty, 31 to 75 known. That census estimate would appear to be on the low side given the number of examples offered tonight.
