    Tied for Top Pop for the Entire 1778 Issue

    Massachusetts October 16, 1778 4s 6d PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    PMG has not graded a single example equal or higher, while PCGS has graded only one equal and none higher. A close look at the entire issue of all twelve denominations reveals that both major grading services have examined in total only two equal and none higher. We auctioned the PCGS 66PPQ specimen of this denomination for $4935 in April 2015 and fully expect tonight's offering to reach or exceed that amount. Much of the popularity of this issue is due to the fact that Paul Revere engraved the original plates, and he also printed the face of the notes. What better way to own a Revere printed note than to have one of the best.
