Denomination 30s
Description South Carolina April 10, 1778 30 Shillings Fr. SC-152. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent. This is a very scarce denomination and type from the series. The type was printed on the second, "rarer" sheet array that also included the "Sun" and "Horse" vignette types. This very pleasing example with the "Hope & Anchor" vignette was the highest denomination from the issue date. The margins are wide and the printing vibrant. The Newman example is superior in eye appeal to the Boyd collection note that realized $1,610 in October 2006. Noted only with some "Small Internal Splits." Conservatively estimated in comparison with its rarity and visual appeal. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society Realized $1292.50. Newman VII (Heritage Auctions, 10/2015), lot 19031.
