South Carolina. February 8, 1779. One Hundred Dollars. PMG graded Choice Uncirculated-63.

Fr. SC-159. An outstanding fully original highest $100 denomination highlight for any better collection of South Carolina Colonial currency rarities. Only 3,000 notes were authorized printed, this denomination having the highest valuation in the current (2008) 5th Edition of Newman, page 426, there listed at $5,500 in “UNC”. This 1779 Revolutionary War date note has three massive wide full margins and a full bottom margin (between to two notes on each sheet), which still retains some embossing of the paper from the outer engraved plate impression when made on the printing press in 1779. The black printing is sharp and distinct, the rich bold brown signatures of Charles Atkins, Plowden Weston and John Smyth and serial number add to its pleasing eye appeal. A rare note PMG graded Choice Uncirculated-63, that is impressive and crisp as when originally printed. A note worthy of strong bidding consideration.
