    Description

    Massachusetts May 25, 1775 16s PMG Choice Fine 15. One of the finest examples we've handled of this rare and extremely popular issue, this piece is particularly desirable as a much larger portion of the vignette indent remains visible and the margin remains all around. 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 tangle of vines, and has the words "American Paper" printed at the bottom. This particular example has a large piece of the indent remaining, and it shows the last five letters of the word "American" and the full word "Paper." Rare in all grades, this piece is high in the census despite its circulation and the small splits that are mentioned by PMG. It has two hole cancels. Most examples are pen canceled by crossing out the signature at the bottom. Rare and very popular, with the full visual appearance of at least a 35.
