DescriptionSouth Carolina February 8, 1779 $60 PMG About Uncirculated 53 EPQ.
The third finest example with no equals graded at PMG, with neither of the top two notes reaching Uncirculated. Similarly, PCGS has not graded a single New example. This note, which has earned the all-important Exceptional Paper Quality grade modifier, is an absolute beauty, as fresh and bright as the day it left the printing press. All three signatures are dark, clear, and clean. Every line of the elaborately engraved vignettes is crystal clear. The face vignette is of a seated Liberty figure holding a cornucopia, surrounded by a ribbon with the Latin motto "MUTUA DEFENSIO TUTISSIMA," which Newman translates as "Mutual defense is safest." The back features a lyre surrounded by horns, flags, and vines. The third party label tells us that this note not only resided in the F.C.C. Boyd Collection, but also the John J. Ford, Jr. Collection.
