    Description

    Massachusetts November 17, 1776 48s Contemporary Counterfeit PCGS Apparent Very Fine 35.
    One of the rarest issues of Massachusetts notes, genuine examples are virtually never seen and even counterfeits are rarely encountered. This note is pen cancelled with an "X" across its face signifying its fraudulent status and the word "Counterfeit" is written vertically on the back next to the Continental soldier. Quite a good counterfeit that clearly circulated for a time along with the genuine examples of this prohibitively rare issue. The apparent grade has been assigned for a multitude of minor problems, all of which are accurate. We sold this identical note in 2006 for $1,955. It has a very good chance of reaching that level this evening.
