    Gorgeous $7 Yorktown-One of Two Uncirculated Examples

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $7 PCGS Very Choice New 64PPQ.
    This gorgeous $7 Yorktown is one of only two Uncirculated examples at both services combined. PMG has not graded a single Uncirculated note, and PCGS has graded this lone 64 with a single 66 above it. The note is well-margined, well-signed, and very sharply printed. The vignette on this $7 Yorktown is that of a heavy storm at sea. It consists merely of clouds, rain, and waves, which generally simply print as an indistinct blot. On this note all the individual features are clear and distinct, as is the Latin motto, "SERENABIT," which Newman translates as, "It Will Be Calm". A great Continental, the only finer piece, the 66 PPQ, was sold by us for just a hair under $10,000. This second-finest known will not reach that level, but it will not be inexpensive, either.
