    Massachusetts June 20, 1744 1 Shilling in Extraordinarily High Grade for the Issue

    Massachusetts June 20, 1744 1s PCGS Very Fine 35.
    This is a rare note no matter what the grade. PCGS has only graded this example and an XF 40 while PMG has graded a single example, a Good 4. PCGS assigned the italic grade to this note due to minor restorations and small stains. Friedberg does not price this issue in any grade. The Newman reference prices these starting in VG at $7,500. PCGS assigned the italic grade due to minor restorations and small stains. These are of little consequence when we are looking at a wholly intact virtually VF example of a note where any denomination from the series is rarely seen better than poor, if at all. This piece offers both rarity and history. This issue was for funding military campaigns against Cape Breton and Louisbourg in Canada.
