    Continental Currency May 10, 1775 $8 PCGS Very Choice New 64PPQ.
    Incredibly sharp printing and strong signatures highlight this first-issue Eight Dollar. The vignette of a thirteen-string harp is unusually sharp. It is surrounded by the Latin motto, MAJORA MINORIBUS CONSONANT, which Newman translates as, "The large colonies and the small colonies are in harmony." A difficult note in top grade with this example tied for Top Pop with two others at PCGS. Both services combined have graded only six uncirculated examples with none better than a 64. A real beauty that would enhance the very finest of collections.
    From The Continental Congress Collection
