    Description

    Massachusetts 1779 3s/6d PMG Choice Uncirculated 64. 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. This example shows every pine needle clearly. PMG has made the comment hinged, though we have been unable to locate it through the holder.
