    Very Rare May 25th 1775 Paul Revere Note

    Massachusetts May 25, 1775 12s Very Fine-Extremely Fine. Save for a very minor restoration-tape repair at the top inch of the center fold, this piece is free of problems of any kind. It's the single most intact example of this issue that Heritage CAA has handled. Many serious Colonial collectors have never laid eyes on a note of this issue. Every word of the text is beautifully clear, as is the serial number and signatures. A small red-pen cancel appears across the last name of Henry Gardner. This note is one of the Massachusetts issues that was engraved by Colonial patriot and silversmith Paul Revere. The indent at the left shows a codfish in the midst of vine designs, and has the words "American Paper" printed at the bottom. This particular example has a fairly large piece of the indent remaining, and shows the last five letters of the word "American" and the full word "Paper." Rare in all grades, with this piece being far up in the census.
