    South Carolina June 1, 1775 £50 PCGS Apparent Very Fine 30.
    This is a superb-condition example of a very scarce denomination. We often see the £10 note, but rarely ever this £50 denomination (this is our ninth ever with most of the others rags). PCGS comments, "Small Splits; Minor Ink Erosion; Hinge Repairs on Back," which affects very little of the note the rest of the note being perfectly natural. All five signatures are bold, and none of the text is affected by the restoration. The large vignette shows a person contemplating a clearing storm surrounded by the Latin motto POST TENEBRAS LUX which Newman translates, "After the Darkness, Light." This note has great margins, exceptional detail and bold signatures. So often these have major problems, but this one does not. We have sold only one other comparable piece recently, a PMG 30 Net, at our FUN 2016 Sale, which realized $2,350. The comparison of that photo to this note indicates that this is considerably nicer.


    Estimate: $2,000 - up.
