    Description

    Massachusetts October 16, 1778 6d 1s/6d Uncut Pair PCGS Extremely Fine 45.
    PCGS refers to these on the holder as a "Partially Cut Pair" and upon close inspection they are exactly right. It seems as though someone was cutting a sheet and went too far, cutting these notes half apart and leaving them half attached. Each note is a strong XF in its own right, with good Codfish vignettes and unusually bold pine trees on the back. The backs of these Codfish notes were printed by Thomas Fleet using cast cuts, and were often weak and/or smeared. On this note, both sides are razor sharp. The face plate was engraved by Paul Revere, and the faces were printed by him. A beautiful example of a scarce and extremely popular type seldom seen as a multiple.
