    Description

    Massachusetts October 16, 1778 2d PCGS New 62.
    This is from the second date and back style for the Revere "Codfish" bills. This series features the images of a codfish and pine tree: the mainstays of the Massachusetts economy. The October 16, 1778 notes with the Thomas Fleet back as seen here, as opposed to the 1776 Gill printed backs, are sometimes encountered in choice condition; they were cut off from leftover three-note strips. The reason for the 62 grade is likely the low centering of the back design. The pine tree is wonderfully strong, but the bottom boarder is touched by the margin at the left. From the face the note has the appearance of a gem.
