    Description

    Massachusetts August 18, 1775 1s PMG Net Good 4. This is the first Sword in Hand issue. It was engraved and printed by the famous Colonial patriot Paul Revere. Sixteen different denominations were printed and fifteen of the sixteen had a small ship vignette on the face. Only this 1s denomination bears a pine tree vignette on the face where the ship is normally found. This note is very well worn with somewhat tattered edges and has been laminated as noted by the grading service. Much of the text both face and back is present as is the pine tree design and revolutionary soldier light. In spite of its heavy use, it retains considerable collector value due to its historic importance and lack of availability in higher grades. The least expensive Sword in Hand note that we have ever sold was for $575 and we would be surprised to see this piece realize much less than that.

    Estimate: $400 - up.
