    Description

    Massachusetts May 25, 1775 10s PCGS Apparent Very Fine 30.
    A beautiful example of this evocative Paul Revere-engraved note, which uses a vine and leaf design for the indent and bears the words, "American Paper" below it. We can recall only seeing one other example from the entire issue with more letters present below the indent. This one shows the tiniest touch of the "e" in American and the full "rican." As usual, the word "Paper" is complete. The note has been cancelled, but only by pen lines drawn through the Henry Gardner signature. It has avoided the oft-seen hole cancellations randomly punched through the center of most of these notes. The plates were produced by Paul Revere in his own shop and the date engraved by him is only five weeks after his "ride." The Apparent grade assigned by PCGS was due to "Split Restored."
