    Description

    Massachusetts 6% Treasury Certificate £25 July 20, 1779 PCGS Very Fine 35, Pen Cancelled. The Pine Tree Surrounded by a Rattlesnake vignette is clean and sharp on this Low R-6 (21 - 30 known) certificate which is listed as MA-19 in the Anderson tome. Because of the engraving style, time period, and Massachusetts location, these bonds were misattributed for many years as the work of Paul Revere. They were in actuality executed by Nathaniel Hurd, a contemporary competitor of Revere. Embossing is observed on this lovely example. Stephen Minot and J. Mascarene signed this note for the Committee along with H. Gardner (treasurer).
