    Description

    Continental Currency September 26, 1778 $30 PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    Several times in describing this collection, we've emphasized our belief that eye appeal trumps technical grade where Continentals are concerned. Having said that, it is nonetheless very nice when both eye appeal and technical high grade combine on the same piece. This is one of those. Every feature of the note is spectacularly sharp, including the vignette, on which every leaf of the wreath shows all its detail. The wreath surmounts a tomb which is surrounded by the Latin motto, SI RECTE FACIES, which Newman translates as, "If you act righteously, you will be honored after death." PCGS has graded 33 examples, with this piece alone at the top of the census by two points.
