Paul Revere Engraved June 20, 1775 New Hampshire Six Shillings Note

Colony of New Hampshire. June 20, 1775. Six Shillings. Copperplate Note Engraved by Paul Revere. Due Date of December 20, 1776. Conservation. Very Fine.

Fr. NH-128. This extremely rare "Key" New Hampshire type was engraved by Paul Revere on a Copperplate and printed in bold black on original watermarked period laid paper. Only 3,000 notes were issued. There were three distinct types, having three different "Due Dates" in the years 1776, 1777 and 1778. Thus, only about 1,000 of this "1776" due date type would have been emitted. Conservation with a number of deft sealed fold splits are well accomplished making the face look particularly pleasing. The signature of Nicholas Gilman as Receiver General for the Treasury, as well as E. Thompson, are well written in rich brown ink. This issue also carried a 6% Yearly Interest. Having a Due Date of December 20, 1776 it would have only had about six months to circulate, until it was to be turned back in to the Treasury for interest to be paid and the note itself then redeemed and destroyed. This very note is the only example of this extremely rare Paul Revere engraved New Hampshire issue. An important New Hampshire, June 20, 1775 Copperplate Note Engraved by Paul Revere for any Colonial Currency collection.
