    Broadly Margined Gem New 66PPQ May 9, 1776 $4 Note

    Continental Currency May 9, 1776 $4 PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
    A lovely and broadly margined Continental note that we last offered as part of the Eric P. Newman Collection where we said, "The face margins are perfectly balanced. Printing clarity is excellent. On the front is the vignette of a wild boar charging a spear, with the motto AUT MORS AUT VITA DECORA (Either death or an honorable life). Perfectly accomplished signatures of Coombe and S. Morris are at the lower left. One of the finest known, it would be a perfect fit for an exceptional Continental set, or an exemplary representative of the series."
    From the Cherry Blossom Collection
