    Massachusetts December 7, 1775 3s/4d PCGS Apparent Very Fine 20.
    PCGS has graded six of these, all with the Apparent comment, as none appear in the census. When a note has the "Apparent" grade, PCGS counts it among the total but does not show the number grade in its population report. PMG does show the number grade of its Net graded notes but make no indication that they were Net graded. An argument can be made for either policy, but if you are struggling through this without a third party grading decoding booklet you can easily become baffled. PMG has graded three with the best of them a 15. This note was called Apparent for "Restorations; Design Redrawn." This is accurate, but it does not materially affect large areas of the note.
