    Massachusetts October 16, 1778 12d PCGS Banknote Choice Uncirculated 63 PPQ.
    An absolutely beautiful Massachusetts codfish 12 pence note. The face plates of this issue were engraved by Paul Revere, and the faces printed by him. The backs of the issue utilized cast cuts, and were printed in the shop of Thomas Fleet. Most examples are generally found in low-grade and/or damaged. Unlike most seen, the pine tree on the back of this note is fully printed. They generally come quite lightly printed. A strong R(ichard) Cranch signature and evenly spaced margins are a few of the attributes that the high end Colonial collector will find when looking at this note.
