South Carolina. March 6, 1776. Fifteen Pounds. “American Rattlesnake Attacking A British Lion” vignette. Apparent repaired splits and tears. PCGS graded Very Fine-30.

Fr. SC-125. This popular “1776” Revolutionary War South Carolina note has highly ornate design, including a highly Patriotic and Politically historic vignette. The motto over the vignette is also highly Political as it reads, “MAGNIS INTERDUM PARVA NOCENT,” which is Latin for (Sometimes small things do harm to big ones). This larger size format note has well reinforced outer centerfold splits and old archival fiber paper reinforcements at center, upon its blank reverse. The engraved copper-plate print quality is excellent, being rich deep black and extremely sharp. The British Lion vignette is distinct in every tiny detail. The print is extremely well centered and has four full, even margins. One of only 9,000 notes printed. Overall, this note compares quite favorably to the illustration of this denomination as shown on page 421 of the new 5th Edition Newman reference.
