DescriptionNorth Carolina August 8, 1778 $40 Freedom of Speech and Liberty of the Press PCGS Apparent Very Fine 20.
This is an iconic, patriotic motto type from the series. The full motto "Freedom of Speech, and the Liberty of the Press" is in the lower left cartouche. Only 3,125 were authorized and, based upon observation, the type seems much rarer than others in this series. This example is essentially full, but noted are "Splits and Tears; Tape Repairs." The repairs consist of old hinges along the edges for reinforcement. Both services combined have graded only five total examples. The best we've handled was a PMG 45 which realized $4887 in 2011.
Estimate: $900 - up.
