Description

    South Carolina June 1, 1775 £50 PMG Very Fine 30 Net.
    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 ever with most of the others rags). PMG comments, "Repaired," which affects the centerfold only with 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. The last example we sold was a PMG Very Good 8 Net from the storied Midnight Ride Collection which brought $402.50. In a far more sophisticated market and in a far better grade, we fully expect a four-figure price to be realized once the hammer falls.
