    Description

    Massachusetts 1779 4s8d Extremely Fine. A lovely, lightly circulated Rising Sun note, with broad margins and perfect printing quality. The face plate for this note was engraved by Paul Revere, and the faces where also printed by him. The backs re-used cast cuts from the Codfish issue, and were printed by Thomas Fleet. In all our sales combined, we've handled fewer than ten Rising Sun notes with this eye appeal and beauty. To this cataloger, no Colonial Currency is more evocative of the period than these aesthetically pleasing notes produced by, and for, our founding fathers.
