    Paul Revere Printed Note

    Massachusetts May 25, 1775 10s Very Fine. This is a rare note from a rare issue as we can recall only offering two other notes over the years from the May 25, 1775 issue with this being the first 10s note. This note was engraved by Colonial patriot and silversmith Paul Revere. The indent at the left shows a codfish in the midst of vine designs and it has the words "American Paper" printed at the bottom. This particular example has a fairly large piece of the indent remaining as it shows the last five letters of the word "American" and the full word of "Paper." This example is also of the highly more desirable pen cancelled variety. There is some soiling on the back and the left quadrant has been skillfully reattached except for an approximate half inch split at bottom. Nonetheless, this is still a very historical piece of American paper money for the collectors of today. Newman prices this note at $7500 in VF in the recently released fifth edition. This rare Colonial should approach that figure.
