    South Carolina March 6, 1776 17s 6d PMG Very Good 10 Net.
    10,000 notes of this denomination were printed for this emission. This example has seen extensive circulation and has been backed by part of a Charleston newspaper Classified Ad section, including one ad looking to "...hire or purchase a good waiting man...." This backing has acquired some of the same fold wear showing that it was applied before the note was finally withdrawn from circulation. The note itself is actually not too bad aside from being split in two. Virtually all of the design elements are clear and legible and the signatures of N. Russell and Samuel Legare are equally legible. In your cataloger's opinion, the period backing serves as a historical document. In particular this section of the newspaper includes solicitation for slavery, "Wanted to Purchase or Hire, a good Waiting Man. Enquire of the Printer". A marginally nicer condition example, in the only other public auction appearance recorded for this catalog number in Track & Price, crossed the auction block for over $1,100. With low denominations from this series seldom seen, this note could get somewhere to the same neighborhood in terms of price realized.
