    Description

    South Carolina- City of Charleston July 6, 1789 1s/3d PCGS Choice About New 55.
    "These notes were issued in order to redeem city issues that had become worn or mutilated. An unsigned remainder, this attractive example is well-printed and has nice margins. Two commissioners would have been required to sign this denomination and higher. The second occurrence of the word 'Treasury' was misspelled 'TREASUSY.' The design includes a tobacco plant and also a coil of hemp rope. The box with the denomination to the right of the rope includes the text 'Abernethie Fecit,' meaning 'Abernethie made it.' It has been almost five years since we sold an example of this denomination. Back then a nice AU such as this that looks CU would have been a $500-$600 note. In today's market it should realize far more." We used that description for an identically graded note which we auctioned last year.
