    PCGS Gem New 66 PPQ $90 February 8, 1779 South Carolina

    South Carolina February 8, 1779 $90 PCGS Gem New 66PPQ. A boldly printed, very well margined, bright example of this extremely popular Colonial note. The note was engraved by Thomas Coram, and it is signed on the back in small letters along the edge of Hercules's cape. The "Hercules Strangling a Lion" vignette on the back is beautifully centered and boldly printed. All three signatures are bold, and every line of the elaborate engraving of both sides is clearly visible. An overall spectacular piece of Colonial Currency. Although PCGS does not as yet have a census of Colonial notes, inferences are easily drawn by using PMG's census. They have graded nine examples of this note, none of which grades as high as 60. It's relatively safe to assume that this piece is the highest yet graded by either service, and it may remain that way well into the future.
