    January 14, 1779 $80 PCGS Gem New 66PPQ

    Continental Currency January 14, 1779 $80 PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
    A spectacular example of the highest denomination from the last issue of Continental Currency, this note is well printed and well margined on both sides. Both signatures remain bold. The emblem on the face displays great color, with the Latin phrase translating as "and it will flourish for ages and ages." Additionally, the strawberry leaf nature print displays nice detail. A simply gorgeous piece. Although PCGS has not released a Colonial census, PMG's records indicate they have only graded one note at this level with none higher and only one example at the 65 level. We sold that 65 EPQ note in our 2007 Central States auction for $2,530 and expect this note to far surpass that amount.
