    Description

    Massachusetts December 7, 1775 3s/4d Choice Very Fine. A lightly circulated but lovely example of this rare and important issue. All the design on both sides is clean and perfect, and the all-important vignette with the Revolutionary soldier with a raised sword on the back is beautifully printed and as sharp as we've ever seen. The plates for this note were engraved by Paul Revere, and the printing for both sides was done in his shop. A truly great piece of Americana, to be enjoyed not just by the Colonial Currency collector but also by anyone who appreciates the early history of our country. This December 7, 1775 issue was heavily counterfeited, but only in the higher denominations. This piece is genuine beyond a doubt, and problem-free save for a little soil and the red penned number six on a blank area of the face.

    Estimate: $5,000 - up.
