    Underrated High-Grade July 22, 1776 $8 Note

    Continental Currency July 22, 1776 $8 PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ.
    An attractive and scarce Continental note from our sale of the Newman collection three years ago where we said: "This beautiful $8 note from the issue has a 13-string harp emblem at the left accompanied by the motto is MAJORA MINORIBUS CONSONANT (The large colonies and the small colonies are in harmony). Stressing unity, Franklin describes the frame as the Continental Congress and the strings as the colonies, "or the various ranks of people in all of them, who are now united by that government in the most perfect harmony." The face margins are ample and the top is very broad. Very well printed and finely detailed on both sides. The note exhibits only faint handling and has a Choice New appearance. Underrated in this high grade. Strictly Choice Uncirculated notes from this issue are deceptively difficult to obtain."
