    Description

    Unique as the Only Known Georgia Inverted Seal and the Only Uncirculated $30 May 4, 1778 Example at Either Service

    Georgia May 4, 1778 $30 Inverted Seal PCGS Very Choice New 64.
    Ignoring the important Inverted Seal, this note's significance begins with the fact that is the only Uncirculated example graded to date by both PCGS and PMG. It displays wonderful margins, deep original embossing, perfect paper surfaces, and spectacular eye appeal. The seal, which shows a wild boar running at a spear, is boldly printed and incredibly sharp even under magnification. Every line, hair, and eye lash (yes, the boar has eye lashes, top and bottom) is perfectly defined.
    In addition, this is the only Georgia note of any variety that your cataloger, with more than five decades of experience in the field of Colonial Currency, has ever seen or heard of with an Inverted Seal. While we hesitate to label any item as unique, no other specialist in this field has ever seen a similar example. The importance of this note to Georgia collectors can not be overstated, but it would also be a perfect candidate for inclusion into an ultimate 13 Colony set as well. Any estimate here is simply a guesstimate, but our best guess here for this wonderful combination of grade and rarity is...
