    Paul Revere Engraved Sword in Hand

    Massachusetts August 18, 1775 20s PMG Choice Fine 15 Net.
    A lovely Sword in Hand note that was engraved and printed by Paul Revere, the note is very well margined and it is a perfect piece save for the center "contemporary repair" which is mentioned by PMG on the holder. With the sewing thread removal you are able to see more of the swordsman, but the tiny thread holes remain visible. This is one of only two examples of this number that PMG has graded. One of the most popular Colonial Currency issues due in large part to its direct association with Paul Revere and also due to the great Continental soldier vignette on the back who holds his sword upright "In defence of American Liberty." The Net 15 grade does not at all convey the quality of the note. Save for the center split repair, it's a solid VF.
