    Massachusetts 1779 1s PCGS Extremely Fine 40.
    These notes were printed from newly engraved face plates produced by Paul Revere. The face plates included the attractive Sun Rising vignette. Only 9,411 of these 1s notes were printed. This one shilling denomination is the only one of the 12 note series to have a pine tree included in the face vignette with the rising sun behind it. Revere printed the faces while the backs with the larger pine tree vignette were printed by Thomas Fleet. The recently released fifth edition Newman prices these at $1,500 in XF and $3,000 in Unc. This example is unusually well-margined and extremely nice for the grade. The Friedberg catalog prices this note at fully double the other 11 denominations in the issue. It is priced at $2,000 in VF with the EF column simply marked "rare".
