    Description

    Continental Currency May 9, 1776 $5 PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    This high-end Choice May 9, 1776 Continental is the only Uncirculated example of its denomination at PMG. Its closest rival is a lone AU 58. On the vignette, the motto SUSTINE VEL ABSTINE (Either survive or give up) accompanies the image of a hand that gathers food and bleeds from thorn pricks. The printing clarity on both sides is magnificent, with deep inks and strong details. The face and back margins are even, and near boardwalk width. This is another Continental note destined for a collection of the finest caliber. PCGS has correctly commented on an "As Made Corner Inclusion." We sold a PCGS 63 back in 2012 for $1358. The only other Uncirculated pieces to have auctioned according to Track & Price were two 66s, one of which sold in 2013 for nearly $5000 and the other last January for over $14,000.
