DescriptionSouth Carolina March 6, 1776 £50 PMG Very Fine 30 Net.
We have sold very few of these, and this is one of the finest. The Net grade is due to a "Repaired, Ink Burn". 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).
Estimate: $1,750 - up.
