    Continental Currency May 10, 1775 $30 PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ.
    This is the only Continental denomination with a double vignette rather than the nature print on the back. The twin vignettes on the back of the Thirty Dollar denomination were utilized on 5 different issues: May 10, 1775, July 22, 1776, November 2, 1776, February 26, 1777 and May 20, 1777. The $30 notes in the final issues utilized nature prints on the backs. The double vignettes are the same two vignettes that appear face and back on the Twenty Dollar May 10, 1775 marbled edge note. Both were designed by Franklin, and Franklin's original sketch for the VI CONCITATE vignette appears on page 78 of the Fifth Edition Newman. The note is remarkably sharply printed, with strong signatures and tremendous eye appeal. The technical grade is accurate due to a very minor sheet fold, but the appearance is that of a Choice New example.
