    Description

    Georgia May 4, 1778 $20 PMG Choice About Unc 58 EPQ.
    This lowest denomination note from an issue than had only three denominations is a true beauty. It has wonderful margins, pristine surfaces, and deep original embossing. The difference between PMG's 58 EPQ grade and a 66 or 67 note is a light pinch fold in the lower right corner area, most visible at the lower left of the back. It's there, but it somehow seems cruel to assign a grade below uncirculated for a defect that could well have been in the paper prior to the note being printed or for that matter a defect that was caused by the printing process which in this instance is our best guess. The rattlesnake vignette and its surround Latin motto are lightly inked, but heavily embossed. All five signatures are dark and bold, including that of William Few who went on to sign the US Constitution eleven years after he affixed his signature to this Georgia note. A prize Colonial example of history in your hands.
