    Impressive First Emission Continental Deuce

    Continental Currency May 10, 1775 $2 PMG About Uncirculated 55.
    The PMG Population Report confirms what your cataloger has assumed for decades; the $2 denomination from this initial Continental emission is actually the scarcest. It is also a conditional rarity, with a single Choice CU 63 EPQ listed, followed by just a handful of nice AU notes, of which this is one. Boldly signed by Morris, Jr. and Kuhl. The emblem is a hand with a thresher's flail and the motto is TRIBULATIO DITAT, which Newman translates "affliction improves it." The nature print depicts a raspberry and two filberts. In our FUN sale, we sold a slightly lesser grade PMG AU 53, with that example topping the $2,000 mark. This is one of the sleeper rarities that is the sine qua non of any advanced Continental Currency collection.
