The signatures on the front are those of Loammi Baldwin and Richard Cranch, reverse/Guaranty signature is Peter Boyer. The reverse emblem shows a hand in a thorn bush bleeding from pricks with the motto "Sustine vel Abstine" (With Perseverance or Acquiesence). Cancel mark takes out "Richard" and one of the "M" in Laommi in front.
Takes out a small portion of emblem on reverse. Does little to detract from the beauty of this note.
Here's Three things you don't often see on Massachusetts Colonial Note's. And this Crisp Uncirculated Note has all three! Baldwin was an engineer, politician and soldier in the Revolutionary War. As a Major he commanded the Woburn militia at the Battle of Lexington and Concord.
When George Washington and his troops crossed the Delaware River and fought the Battle of Trenton the next morning, Baldwin and his troops participated in both the crossing and the battle. Having the signature of a important American Patriot from the Revolutionary War in your collection would be truly amazing!
