    Massachusetts December 7, 1775 3s Fine. Save for some very minor edge problems, this nice Sword in Hand note is Choice for the grade, with all its text clear and the important back vignette very strong. This issue was both engraved and printed by Paul Revere. This 3s note has the odd misspelled abbreviation for December on the back of the note. It reads, "Deemr," unlike the other fifteen denominations. This issue is known for its deceptive counterfeits, but they were made only for the 36s and 42s denominations. All 3s notes are the product of Paul Revere and are properly signed and issued. This is a very nice note of great historic importance.
