    Description

    Massachusetts 1779 5s4d Choice Very Fine. A beautiful example of the scarce and popular Rising Sun issue. The face plates for this issue were engraved by Colonial patriot Paul Revere, and the faces of the notes were printed in his shop. The back uses the same type and cast cuts that were previously employed on the Codfish issue, and they were printed in the shop of Thomas Fleet. This is an outstanding example. It's utterly problem free. The face has three large margins and is very sharply printed; the back is also sharply printed, and is perfectly centered. A premium example.
