    Massachusetts Treasury Loan Certificate £20 June 1, 1780 MA-8 PMG Very Fine 30.
    The Sword in Hand vignette encircled by a rattlesnake is at upper left. Clarence Brigham clearly shows in his 1954 book Paul Revere's Engravings that this certificate is the work of Nathaniel Hurd, not Paul Revere, a common misattribution. In fact, the former backing of this note is included in this lot as the above changed attribution, among other writings, has been penned on the backing with a date of "8/12/(19)55." This piece was previously mounted with stamp hinges, has older tape repairs, and annotations are on the back. (Total: 2 items)
