    Beautiful "Sword in Hand"

    Massachusetts December 7, 1775 14s PCGS About New 50. This is the third Fourteen Shilling example of this issue we have handled, the last was in our 2002 Long Beach Signature Auction. That piece, an Extremely Fine, realized over $8,000. What's more we have sold less than ten examples total, two of which are known contemporary counterfeits. To really emphasize the quality of this note, we must make a comparison to the last piece we handled. The margins are larger and more even. More importantly, the two folds that bisected right in the middle of the Colonial soldier are not present on this lightly circulated issue and thus do not interrupt the all important design element that places this note at No. 94 in the book 100 Greatest American Currency Notes. Its place in the Colonial Currency field is due to the patriotic vignettes, along with the note's association with Paul Revere (he engraved the plates and printed these notes).
