    Small Sword in Hand 48s Note

    Massachusetts June 18, 1776 48s PMG About Uncirculated 50.
    This 48 Shillings/$8 note is from the very scarce Small Sword in Hand issue, where the patriotic vignette appears on the face of the note. This is the highest denomination of the issue and lists for $10,000 in EF in the fifth edition of the Newman reference. That price is out ahead of the market, but it is indicative of the true rarity of this note in high grade. This is the highest graded example of this note that we have ever auctioned. A look at the PMG and PCGS databases tell us that our current offering is also the highest graded among the two major grading services with no equals.
