    State of Massachusetts Bay £150 Treasury Certificate Advance Pay to Officers, Second Moiety at 6% Interest July 20, 1779. Anderson MA 19. About Uncirculated.
    A signed, but undated and unissued remainder that was ink cancelled at Gardner's signature. Areas of ink burn are noticed. These were issued to Revolutionary War officers as advance pay. This is the scarcer variety, printed at the right, "Advance Pay to Officers, second Moiety." Moiety is a long-outdated formal word meaning simply "half." The rattlesnake surrounded pine tree vignette engraved by Nathaniel Hurd at upper left adds to the eye appeal of this piece.
