Superb Quality Massachusetts "Small Sword"
Massachusetts June 18, 1776 42s or $7 Fr. MA-212 PMG
This superb quality "Small Sword" $7 printed by Benjamin Edes may be the finest known of the denomination and one of the best seen by us from the entire series. These have been overlooked by collectors for their true rarity, especially in high-grade condition. This example has an exemplary pedigree from the Boyd Collection. It formerly had an attached "Haseltine Pedigree" green paper strip professionally removed to conserve the back top edge with this "Minor Restoration" as noted on the back of the encapsulation. However, bright and vivid on both sides with the natural coarse paper used on the series exhibiting original textural surfaces. We have sold lesser grade type notes from the shilling/dollar denominations from the act in the $4,000 range in the past. This census-caliber note should be worth considerably more. Deserving of being a five-figure example.
