    Description

    South Carolina April 10, 1778 20s PMG About Uncirculated 53.
    April 10, 1778 South Carolina notes are an odd issue. Due to the existence of a hoard, four of the eight denominations are common even in high grade. The other four (7s6d, 15s, 20s and 30s) are rarely seen, and most survivors are in VG or lower grades. This PMG AU53 "Horse" is an extreme rarity at this grade level. We believe this example to be the finest known, and it is the highest of seven graded by PMG to date. The highest grade assigned at PCGS for this number is an AU50, making this finest known at both services combined. The Stack's Ford sales contained two of these with the best single being a Very Fine, and the second piece was part of a damaged sheet graded Very Good. These notes are currently priced at $2000 in VF in the latest edition of Newman. This note sold for $1955 in our Midnight Ride sale in September 2009 remaining Top-Pop for the past seven years. With the Ford and Newman Collections now dispersed, we would anticipate a far stronger realization.
