    Rare 3 Pence Massachusetts Small Format Note

    Massachusetts June 18, 1776 3d PCGS Apparent Very Fine 25.
    "This is a rare denomination as are all of the pence denominations from this largely misunderstood and underappreciated issue. Because these notes were printed on thick, coarse paper with no vignette they have never been appreciated for their rarity the way the Codfish and Rising Sun notes have. This enormously margined note certainly looks to be more of a Very Fine but has been downgraded slightly due to pinholes. In all of our years here at Heritage we have never sold an example of this denomination individually and we would expect this note to be well received by the connoisseur of colonial currency." This was our description when we sold the only other 3d note we have had, when it brought $352.50 as part of the voluminous Midnight Ride Collection. PCGS does cite minor stains, but the margins are huge and the note itself is just rare.
