    Description

    Massachusetts 1779 3s 6d PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    When we last sold this note in our April 2009 auction, it realized $2415.00. We described it there "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." This remains the highest example that PMG has graded, with its closest competitor an AU55. PCGS has not graded a single uncirculated example, making this attractive and historic note Top-Pop at both services combined.


    Estimate: $2,500 - up.
