    Description

    State of Massachusetts-Bay Treasury Certificate Comm'tte War £10 October 14, 1778 Anderson MA-4 Extremely Fine.
    This certificate was issued to pay drafts of the Board of War. This example has solid serial number 888. A resolve was passed on Dec. 6, 1776 requiring that a seal be placed over the handwritten amount of the certificates as a means to prevent alteration of the face value. The seal includes a tree and clasped hands along with the inscription DAT VIRES UNIO. Portions of the seal are visible. This certificate has been cancelled by means of several "X"s inked over the signature of H. Gardner, Treasurer and includes notations written along the right margin stating that the first year of interest was paid. The indented left margin was also trimmed as part of the cancellation process. The left edge shows aging and a couple of small edge tears.
