Description

    Continental Currency January 14, 1779 $50 PCGS Very Choice New 64PPQ.
    This is the only note graded by PCGS at this level, with none higher. PMG has also graded only one 64EPQ, with none higher. That makes this the finest graded at PCGS, and tied with only one other for both services combined. Our experience has shown us that in many instances, when there is a single piece tied for finest known at both services, it is the very same note. While not necessarily the case in this instance, it will certainly be the case a hefty percentage of the time. When there is a single -5 or -6 at one service, with only a single note one point below it at the other service... the chances are even greater. Sadly, when the highest note at one service is a 45, and the highest at the other is a 64, it is also occasionally the same note. In any event, this Fifty Dollar is a very lovely note that is clearly graded properly at the 64PPQ level. This denomination, although not unique to this 1779 issue, is found in only two of the eleven different issues of Continentals.
