South Carolina. April 10, 1778. Fifteen Shillings. “Rising Sun” vignette. Choice Very Fine.

Fr. SC-150. This 1778 Revolutionary War date 15s note is a major “Rising Sun” vignette type, being one of the three highest and rarest denominations on this issue. This note has pleasing overall eye appeal and bears the signatures of John Beale and John Peronneau. There is some deft conservation to the left quarter and a thin strip of reinforcement fiber paper placed vertical along the centerfold and another at the left side on the blank reverse. It is well printed, has nice centering within its four margins. The printed text and its Rising Sun vignette are sharp and clear with the overall appearance of the printed face being solid and choice.
