Description Massachusetts 1779 1 Shilling Fr. MA-266. PCGS Choice About New 55. This is a uniquely styled Revere face plate series and the final type he executed for Massachusetts. The backs were engraved by Thomas Fleet. All the face "Rising Sun" vignettes differ depending upon denomination. This lowest denomination Pine Tree and Sun vignette note is difficult to obtain in high grades. The face is lightly printed, as made, but the back is sharp. Full sheet margins are at the right and bottom. A most underrated and undervalued note. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society Realized $1351.25. Newman VII (Heritage Auctions, 10/2015), lot 18109. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
