DescriptionSouth Carolina February 8, 1779 $60 Extremely Fine. Thomas Coram of Charleston, South Carolina engraved all of the face and back designs for this popular 1779 issue. The face vignette of this denomination is of a seated Liberty figure holding a cornucopia and surrounded by a ribbon with the Latin motto "MUTUA DEFENSIO TUTISSIMA," which Newman translates as "Mutual Defense is Safest." The paper is bright and attractive with all of the printed details remaining bold. A tiny portion of the top margin has been expertly repaired, but it does not detract from the note's overall eye appeal. There is also an approximate quarter inch split at top center mentioned for cataloging accuracy.
Estimate: $800 - up.
