    The Only Uncirculated Example At Either Grading Service

    Massachusetts 1779 5s 6d PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    We were surprised to find that this 5s6d note is the only example graded uncirculated by either major service. The notes are found with the same frequency as the other denominations in circulated grades. This uncirculated 5s6d is a whole different animal. Nothing higher than 40 has ever sold at auction according to Track & Price. Newman indicates identical prices for 10 of the 12 denominations. The two highest denominations, the 5s4d and the 5s6d are priced higher, although the number printed is exactly the same for all 12. For anyone building a high grade Paul Revere set, this note is a must have. The faces of these notes were both engraved and printed by Paul Revere. The backs were printed by Thomas Fleet and presumably not engraved by Revere. A wonderful and highly desirable example of its type. This note traces its history to a 1975 New Netherlands sale.
