    Scarce July 26, 1775 Maryland $1 1/3

    Maryland July 26, 1775 $1 1/3 PMG Very Good 8 Net.
    The Net 8 grade is certainly technically accurate, as is the comment of "repairs," but the repairs are quite minor and the note faces up like a Fine. The engraving is far more elaborate than on any other Maryland issue, and the allegorical vignettes, although not executed with great skill, are as evocative as anything seen on Colonial Currency. The vignette at the top of the face shows George III setting fire to an American city with a torch while trampling on the Magna Charta. The border cut includes the text, "An appeal to HEAVEN" while the left cut reads, "Pro Aris et Focis," translated as "for altars and the hearth." The back is entirely given over to a vignette of Peace and Liberty. One of the most popular Colonial notes, and extremely rare in all grades.
