    Description

    Massachusetts October 16, 1778 6d Very Choice New. This is only the second example of this denomination that we have sold in our 36 sales. The only other example was a Fine in January of 2002. Twelve different denominations were printed for this issue, and we've sold about 40 examples, but this is only the third truly uncirculated piece that we have handled. It's well signed, well margined and very well printed. 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.
