Description

    South Carolina June 1, 1775 £50 PMG Choice Fine 15 Net.
    For this note, 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 eighth with most of the others rags). PMG cites "Large Splits, Stains," but the note has the appearance of a Very Fine and is utterly original, with no restorations of the splits. The stains that they mention are meaningless and typical of all notes of this era. All five signatures are bold. 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. An extraordinary example of the issue well undergraded in our opinion.


    Estimate: $1,500 - up.
