||Georgia June 8, 1777 $3 Black "In" Fr. GA-105b. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent. These beautiful typeset certificates were payable in Continental Currency rather than Spanish Milled Dollars. The charmingly rendered frontiersman in the seal stands with one hand on his hip and the other supporting the rifle resting on the ground. Richard Wylly, Edward Langworthy, and Joseph wood signed at the left, and William O'Bryen and Nehemiah Wade signed perpendicularly. PCGS notes a "Small Edge Split at Bottom Right," but it is a minor detraction. The left margin is very wide, and the note is well printed, with embossing seen on the blank back. The face is clear and bright, and the colors are vivid. A handsome type note from this issue. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
