Description: Massachusetts Currency
Exceedingly Rare Genuine June 18, 1776 One Dollar Note
Colony of the Massachusetts Bay. June 18, 1776. One Dollar or Six Shillings. Due Date of June 18, 1778. Split restoration. PMG net graded Extremely Fine-40.
Fr. MA-206. No.2231. Signed by Palfrey and S. Carlton. Printed on heavy coarse paper. This is from the "Small Sword In Hand" issue as we sometimes unofficially call it. Genuine bills are quite rare, particularly the One Dollar note which was the lowest denomination of the issue and circulated heavily. A clean note, creased with some soiling seen on the fold on the back. There is some other minor handling as well and a very tiny split at the left edge. A Massachusetts type that has always been underrated.
