Description

    Continental Currency February 26, 1777 $4 PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    We have sold this note once before as part of our September 2009 Long Beach sale. It was described there "It is a beauty, with two normal size margins and two sheet size margins. The vignette of the boar running onto a spear is remarkably sharp, as is every letter of the Latin motto, 'Aut Mors Aut Vita Decora,' which Newman translates as, "Either death or an honorable life." It appears this boar has thrown in the towel on the honorable life part." Back in 2009, this was the only uncirculated example graded by PMG. There is now one other below it, but it remains the sole 65 EPQ with nothing above it. Considering the number of extraordinary Continentals that have hit the market in the past five years, this 65 standing at the top of the PMG census indicates true rarity in high grade.
