    $80 South Carolina February 8, 1779 - Top-Pop at Both Services Combined

    South Carolina February 8, 1779 $80 PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ.
    Top-Pop at both services combined. PMG has a single 55 with nothing higher and PCGS has this lone 58PPQ with nothing higher. This $80 denomination is one of the earlier authorized denominations from this issue, and it is seen with far less frequency than the three later unauthorized denominations ($50, $70 and $90.) These earlier-issued denominations were also engraved by Thomas Coram, although he placed his name only on the later issues. This note has broad even margins, excellent centering on both sides, and tremendous eye appeal. The $50, $70, and $90 notes all come Uncirculated, but the earlier produced pieces simply do not, as the double Top-Pop status of this note clearly shows. Our consignor indicates this note is ex-Ford, lot 8766, from October 2006 where it brought $4,025.
