    Description

    South Carolina March 6, 1776 £50 PCGS Apparent Extremely Fine 40. The Second Provincial Congress of South Carolina authorized this issue. The emblem for this £50 note, as described by Newman, is trophies. The motto is ANIMIS OPIBUSQUE PARATI (prepared in spirit and resources). Only 3700 notes of this denomination were printed, with this example numbered 1315. The size of the paper the notes were printed on varied according to the denomination. The two highest denominations, £50 and £100, measure approximately 3 1/2" by 5 3/8" inches and are the only two notes from the issue with printed backs. An elaborate design is seen on the back along with the motto, DEUS PUGNAVIT ET DISSIPANTUR (God has fought and the opposition was dispersed). The signatures of Jacob Motte, Thomas Savage, and Peter Leger remain visible on this example. Tape repaired splits and tears were listed as the reasons for the apparent grade. Newman only prices this denomination up through Fine ($1750).
