    Choice New 1778 Codfish Strip of Three

    Massachusetts October 16, 1778 6d, 1s6d, 2s Vertical Strip of Three PCGS Choice New 63.
    A beautiful strip of Codfish notes. All three notes and the strip itself have earned the PCGS 63 grade. In the early 70's there were perhaps a dozen strips from this issue floating about the marketplace, many of which had weakly printed backs. This strip, unlike most of the others, is boldly printed on both sides. Many of the strips have been cut up to create high-grade individual notes, and those that have not been cut have been absorbed into long-term collections, as they are almost never seen on today's market. The backs of these Codfish notes were printed by Thomas Fleet using cast cuts, and were often weak and/or smeared. On this strip, both sides are razor sharp, and the smearing is non existent. The face plate was engraved by Paul Revere, and the faces were printed by him.
