    Description

    South Carolina February 8, 1779 $70 PCGS Apparent Extremely Fine 40.
    This is one of the three denominations that were added later on in the issue. On these $50, $70 and $90 notes, Thomas Coram added his name on the engraved backs. It appears as "T. Coram Sc" immediately to the left of the ring that holds Prometheus's chained ankle. The soft paper that these notes were printed on was very subject to splits and other problems, as is evidenced by the PCGS notations of repaired edge splits and tears, as well as an upper corner being replaced and redrawn. This note has spectacular grade and eye appeal as it is boldly printed and signed on snow white paper. It has been over a year since we have seen an example of this denomination in any of our sales.
