DescriptionMassachusetts December 7, 1775 16s PMG Very Fine 30.
This is just the second time that we have offered this denomination on this series. The plates for this note were engraved by Paul Revere, and the printing for both sides was done in his shop. A truly great piece of Americana, to be enjoyed not just by the Colonial Currency collector, but also by anyone who appreciates the early history of our country. Splits and stains are cited on the third party label. In October 2015, we sold the Eric Newman example of the 16 Shilling note from this series in a far less appealing grade. This pleasing and elusive "Sword in Hand" note will make a welcome addition to the next collection it enters.
