Description

    Continental Currency May 10, 1775 $30 PCGS Choice About New 58.
    The $30 note is the highest denomination from the first Continental issue. This appealing, boldly printed note has strong detail on both sides. A wreath on a tomb is pictured in the emblem on the face with the motto SI RECTE FACIES (If you act righteously you will be honored after death). The mottos with the emblems on the back are VI CONCITATE (Driven by force) and CESSANTE VENTO CONQUIESCEMUS (When the storm dies down we will rest). This piece is wonderfully signed and unusually well margined. The note has the full appearance of a Choice New and viewed through the holder, the reason for the assigned AU grade cannot be seen. An always in demand denomination, we have sold 2 AU's in the past three years, one in 2010 which realized $920 and a lower quality example in 2011 that realized $690.
