    New Hampshire June 20, 1775 20s Choice Extremely Fine. This issue, which has been historically referred to as "copperplate" notes, was both engraved and printed by Paul Revere. Only 12,000 notes were printed for the entire issue, 3000 each for four different denominations. This 20s note is the finest example we've seen of any denomination. It's absolutely flawless save for a few very minor folds and two miniscule edge splits. The serial number and both signatures are bold and dark, and the overall appearance of the note is extraordinary. The original embossing can be clearly seen across the entire surface of the note's blank back. As the popularity of Colonial notes increases, crucial high-grade pieces such as this will likely disappear from the marketplace. The importance of acquiring this note will be apparent to all serious collectors, and we expect the competition to be heated.
