    1776 Georgia $4 Maroon Seal

    Georgia 1776 $4 Maroon Seal Liberty Cap PCGS Apparent Very Fine 30.
    The blue and orange seal varieties of this note are quite common but not this maroon seal variety. We are unable to find another in our archives and believe this to be the first example we have sold. Newman lists this note at $1,500 in Fine and $3,750 in Very Fine. Friedberg is even higher at $1,750 in Fine and $4,500 for Very Fine 25. The Apparent grade has been assigned for "Edge and Internal Splits; Minor Stains." The note is a beauty and although trimmed tightly, all five signatures remain bold and legible and the maroon seal is razor sharp down to the smallest detail. The note was purchased by our consignor in September 1956 from M. Bolender. As so often seems to happen, we have never sold one of these and in this auction, we have two, with this much the nicer of that pair.
