    Massachusetts November 17, 1776 48s Contemporary Counterfeit PCGS Apparent Extremely Fine 45.
    One of the rarest issues of Massachusetts notes. Genuine examples are virtually never seen and even counterfeits are rarely encountered. Quite a good counterfeit that clearly circulated for a time along with the genuine examples of this prohibitively rare issue. PCGS has assigned the Apparent grade for "Edge Splits and Repairs; Minor Stains." We have never sold a genuine example of this note, and the closest counterfeit in grade was a raw VF that was pen cancelled. That note realized $1955 back in 2006. This note is higher grade, uncancelled, and very handsome. We would anticipate a price in excess of $2000.
