Extremely Rare Maryland $8 Allegorical Note

    Maryland July 26, 1775 $8 PCGS Very Good 10. Notes from this issue are extremely rare in all denominations, regardless of the grade. Thomas Sparrow created the elaborate propaganda engravings seen on these notes. America, holding a pole with a liberty cap and standing in front of a group of Continental soldiers, is represented on one side of Britannia and is seen standing on a scroll marked "slavery" while handing Britannia a petition. On Britannia's other side, King George III is seen trampling on the Magna Charta and setting fire to an American town. The images on the back illustrate America and Britannia standing while holding an olive branch of peace between them. The signature of J(ohn) Brice remains dark. The border cuts on the sides are missing. However, due to the scarcity of this issue, these notes are extremely desirable in any grade.

    Estimate: $7,000 - up.
