    Pinckney Signed 1770 £10

    South Carolina April 7, 1770 £10 PCGS Apparent Fine 15.
    This note features the signature of Charles C. Pinckney who was an important figure in the early history of South Carolina and the United States. In addition to fighting alongside Washington in the Revolutionary War, he served as a delegate to the Constitutional Convention. Later, he was a two-time candidate for the presidency. The vignette of Justitia at lower right was well intended. The April 7, 1770 issue of 7,000 £10 notes was authorized to fund edifices for the legal system in the colony, including court houses and jails. No other denominations were issued and today, survivors are scarce with none appearing in our auctions in at least a decade. According to Newman's reference Early Paper Money of America, a 2004 sale of a Fine netted nearly $7,000. This piece has a contemporary backing with some notations commonly found on early Colonials. The grading service assigned an Apparent grade for splits and stains. A rare piece nonetheless.
