    High Grade Small Sword in Hand Note

    Massachusetts June 18, 1776 24s/$4 PMG Choice Very Fine 35 EPQ. Beautifully margined, well signed, and an exceptional example of its type. An important rarity, particularly in this grade. PMG has graded a mere two examples to date. The Newman book lists the note at $5000 in VF and $10,000 in EF. This VF 35 EPQ falls just a hair short of that full EF grade. These small Sword-In-Hand notes are considerably rarer than their larger counterparts where the full size Continental Soldier appears on the back of the note. While we've handled several examples of the counterfeit of this note and one is being offered in tonight's auction, this is only the second genuine example HCAA has handled in the last decade.

    Estimate: $6,000 - up.
