    Description

    Massachusetts November 17, 1776 48s PCGS Apparent About New 50 Contemporary Counterfeit.
    A Revolutionary War period contemporary counterfeit of an excessively rare Paul Revere engraved "Sword in Hand" note. It is a most interesting example of a quality made contemporary counterfeit from the period. This is a particularly broad margined example that has edge splits noted on its holder. These splits are trivial at best measuring only about one-eighth inch at the extreme outer edges of the center fold. It is pen cancelled across the face and has a lightly penned "Counterfeit" vertically on the back. Both the face and back have four full margins and are very well centered having all of the printed text and designs fully upon the paper. Overall, it is an elusive counterfeit on an excessively rare genuine note.
