    Newman Plate Example Massachusetts November 21, 1708 40s Contemporary Counterfeit

    Massachusetts November 21, 1708 40s Contemporary Counterfeit PCGS Extremely Fine 40.
    To anyone's best knowledge, no genuine notes of this issue survive. PCGS has graded three examples, all contemporary counterfeits. PMG does not list any examples in their population report. The three that PCGS has graded are all italic or apparent and the grades do not appear in the population report. This one is a beauty, minus a few small splits. After being off the market for many decades, this note is now making its third appearance in the last fifteen years. After being part of the Boyd collection, it was sold by Stack's as part of the Western Collection in 2004 and again in 2011 as part of the Bunker Hill Collection. The note is the plate note from the Newman book and the current edition quotes the price realized from Stack's May 2004 sale as $9,775.
