Description: Massachusetts Currency
Extremely Rare November 17, 1776 Issue Massachusetts Contemporary Counterfeit of Paul Revere "Sword in Hand"
State of the Massachusetts Bay. November 17, 1776. Paul Revere "Sword in Hand" design, Forty Eight Shillings. Contemporary Counterfeit. Apparent Edge splits. PCGS graded About New-50.
Fr. MA-253CT. This Revolutionary War period Contemporary Counterfeit of this exceedingly rare Paul Revere Engraved "Sword in Hand" note issue with a Redemption Due Date of December 7, 1781. It is a most interesting example of a quality made Contemporary Counterfeit note from the period. This is a particularly broadly margined example that has noted on its holder "Edge Splits" which are trivial at best measuring only about 1/8" at the extreme outer edges of the centerfold. Pen Cancelled across its face and lightly penned "Counterfeit" across the back. Both the face and back have four full margins and are very well centered having all of the printed text and designs fully upon the paper. The paper appears quite crisp and actually lightly circulated before being discovered. An important and historic rarity.
