    Historical Paul Revere Note

    Massachusetts December 7, 1775 3s/4d Choice Very Fine. This is a lightly circulated, but lovely example of this rare and important issue. All of the design on both sides is clean and perfect and the all-important vignette with the Revolutionary soldier with a raised sword on the back is beautifully printed and as sharp as we have ever seen. The plates for this note were engraved by Paul Revere and the printing for both sides was done in his shop. This note was issued just eight months after his famous "Midnight Ride" to warn the citizenry that the British were coming. This is 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. This piece is problem-free save for a little soil and the red penned number "6" in a blank area on the face. This note last appeared in our 2006 FUN auction where it hammered for $2875. Expect a realization tonight above this figure.
