    Description

    South Carolina February 8, 1779 $60 PMG About Uncirculated 53. This piece has three broad margins, but the top margin is quite tight. It's a very well signed, bright and attractive example of this extremely popular issue. Both the faces and backs of these notes were elaborately engraved by Thomas Coram of Charleston, South Carolina. The face vignette is of a seated Liberty figure holding a cornucopia, surrounded by a ribbon with the Latin motto "MUTUA DEFENSIO TUTISSIMA," which Newman translates as "Mutual defense is safest." The back features a lyre surrounded by horns, flags and vines. This is one of the nicer examples we've seen of this denomination.
