    Historic Note Printed by Paul Revere

    Massachusetts August 18, 1775 1s Good. This is the first Sword in Hand issue. It was engraved and printed by the famous Colonial patriot Paul Revere. Sixteen different denominations were printed and fifteen of the sixteen had a small ship vignette on the face. Only this 1s denomination bears a pine tree vignette on the face where the ship is normally found. This note is very well worn with somewhat tattered edges, and although free of noteworthy problems, much of the text both face and back is quite light. In spite of its heavy use, it retains considerable collector value due to its historic importance and lack of availability in higher grades.
