    May 5, 1780, $5, Massachusetts, MA-282, XF-AU, cancelled. A triangular cut-out cancellation took a large portion of the note away, but the rest of this example is crisp, clean, and boldly printed. The signatures were affected by the cancellation, but they are otherwise bold and clear. The first English colonists in what was to become Massachusetts were the famed Pilgrims, led by William Bradford, who founded the colony at Plymouth. A rival colony, the Massachusetts Bay colony, was founded by Puritan settlers near Boston in the 1630s and soon overshadowed its older neighbor to the south. Plymouth colony was annexed by the Massachusetts Bay colony in 1691, and by the 1770s the colony was a center of commerce and political activity.
