State of Massachusetts. October 16, 1778. Eight Pence. Due date of October 18, 1784. Paul Revere Engraved Second "Codfish" Issue. Crisp Uncirculated.
Fr. MA-258. This attractive Revolutionary War note was engraved by Paul Revere in a copperplate for the now "State" of Massachusetts. It is well centered and the reverse displays a huge right margin with a partial plate letter "A" which is rarely seen. This note is very clean and well printed with some light handling being overall crisp and boldly signed in rich brown.
