DescriptionSouth Carolina February 8, 1779 $50 PMG About Uncirculated 55 EPQ.
"The signatures are strong and the note is beautifully centered on both sides. The original issue specified only $40, $60, $80 and $100 denominations. When the plates for those denominations were prepared, Thomas Coram of Charleston engraved both the faces and the elaborate backs, but he did not sign his work. When $50, $70 and $90 denominations were added later in the year, Coram engraved his name on the back of those three denominations. This $50 denomination bears the 'T. Coram Sculp. 1779' in the ground below the knee of the mythical Atlas. Notes of any denomination from this popular and attractive issue are seldom seen in high grade. This particular example has earned not only the About New grade, but also the 'Exceptional Paper Quality' qualifier." That was our description when this note was last sold at our FUN 2009 auction. It realized $2,070, a number that should be slightly eclipsed this evening.
