    Description

    Massachusetts December 7, 1775 3s 4d PCGS Fine 15.
    PCGS has commented, "restorations." There are quite a number of them, but they are well executed and virtually invisible unless the note is candled. Although showing some circulation defects, the all-important vignette with the Revolutionary soldier with a raised sword on the back, the vignette that supplies this note its name is darkly printed and 90-plus percent clear. It is unaffected by the restorations, save for a small area at the soldier's coat tails and the bottom corner of the Magna Charta held in his left hand. 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. This December 7, 1775 issue was heavily counterfeited, but only in the higher denominations.
