    Description

    South Carolina February 8, 1779 $70 PMG Very Fine 30 EPQ. The margins are tight all the way around, but they clear the frame line save for the right edge of the top. The back design is untouched by any edge and very boldly printed. A lovely example of one of the better-executed Colonial Currency designs. High-grade examples from this issue always attract considerable bidder attention, and this is one of the nicest Seventies we've had in a while. The back design, engraved by Thomas Coram of Charleston, bears a detailed vignette illustrating the myth of Prometheus, chained to the rock, having his liver perpetually devoured by an eagle. This is one of the three denominations where Coram added his name to the plate. It appears just to the left of the chain on Prometheus's ankle. PMG has included their Exceptional Paper Quality comment.
