    Description

    Massachusetts 1779 3s 6d PCGS Very Fine 35.
    Only 9,411 of these were printed. An unusually nice looking example from this extremely popular Rising Sun issue. The Rising Sun issue was printed from face plates that had been engraved by Colonial printer, silversmith, and legendary forefather Paul Revere, who also printed the faces of the notes themselves. The backs employed set type and cast cuts from the previous Codfish issue and were printed by Thomas Fleet. This note has a strong signature, excellent margins, and near-perfect printing on the back, which is rather unusual for these, as the cast cut pine tree on the back tends to be lightly printed. The XF example in the Newman Collection realized $1500, and we sold a different denomination PCGS Apparent 35 at this year's FUN for $763.
