    Very Rare 1722 Two Pence Square

    Massachusetts June 1722 Two Pence Square PCGS Very Fine 25.
    The Two Pence is a great rarity, however, the discovery in 2014 of a new example brought close attention to this great series as a whole when that raw XF piece realized $44,062 at auction. That was the last Two Pence Square to cross the auction block. The ex-Eric Newman example in this lot is in a comment free third party holder. It has much more brightness of parchment and darker ink in almost all respects than the earlier 2014 offering. This dark printing enables the viewer to see clearly the finger pointing motif at center above the denomination, making one wonder how long has this been used in the printing business? The piece in this lot exhibits some mottled toning, but the note is very square and well margined. We are excited to auction the three denominations for this series in this auction session, as one never knows when we will ever have another chance.
