    Description

    Massachusetts August 18, 1775 24s PCGS Apparent Very Fine 25.
    A rather nice looking Sword in Hand note for its grade level. PCGS has added the Apparent to the grade for "Restorations." The appearance of that single word typically indicates too many varied problems to list or not significant enough to bother listing. In this case, fortunately, it appears to be the latter. This is one of the most popular issues among Colonial Currency Collectors due in large part to its direct association with Paul Revere and also due to the great Continental Soldier vignette on the back who holds his sword upright "in defence of American Liberty." Just last January, we auctioned a PMG comment free 25 for $5170. That note was indeed considerably better than this, but not by more than a few thousand dollars.
