    Description

    Continental Currency May 10, 1775 $30 PCGS New 62PPQ.
    This is the only Continental denomination with a double vignette rather than the nature print on the back. The twin vignettes on the back of the Thirty Dollar denomination were utilized on 5 different issues: May 10, 1775, July 22, 1776, November 2, 1776, February 26, 1777 and May 20, 1777. The $30 notes in the final issues utilized nature prints on the backs. The double vignettes are the same two vignettes that appear face and back on the Twenty Dollar May 10, 1775 marbled edge note. Both were designed by Benjamin Franklin, and Franklin's original sketch for the VI CONCITATE vignette appears on page 78 of the Fifth Edition Newman. PCGS has graded this note 62PPQ and it is quite rare at this grade level. The note is high-end choice in all respects save for the centering which just touches the design in two spots and limits this example to the 62 grade.
