    Iconic Sword in Hand Issue

    Massachusetts August 18, 1775 2s PMG Very Good 8 Net.
    This is the first of the Minuteman issues and one of the most desirable types in all of the Colonial Currency field. PMG has net graded this due to backing and tape repairs. We have only sold a handful of 2 Shilling notes over the years, with the only one in this same grade realizing $920 as part of the Midnight Ride Collection back in 2009. More recently, in our 2013 Long Beach sale we sold a PMG 12 Net for $1,410.
