DescriptionContinental Currency May 20, 1777 $4 PMG About Uncirculated 50. PMG comments on the pinholes, but they are invisible unless the note is held to a light. It's well margined, with a very clear seal showing a wild boar running into a spear. The seal is surrounded by the Latin motto Aut Mors Aut Vita Decora, which translates as, "Either death or an honorable life." It appears the poor boar is mere seconds from the former. This May 20, 1777 issue is very nearly as scarce as the following far more highly touted April 11, 1778 Yorktown issue. The new edition of Newman values this Four Dollar denomination at $2000 in EF.
Estimate: $750 - up.
