    Description

    Massachusetts May 25, 1775 18s Fine-Very Fine. The center split has been contemporarily repaired by gluing a piece of blank paper to the blank back of this note, after which it continued in circulation. It has two hole cancels, both about two-thirds the size of a dime, one neat and round and the other vaguely star-shaped. 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 three letter of the word "American" and the full word "Paper". Rare in all grades, with this piece being far up in the census despite its obvious use.
