Click an Image to Enlarge It
South Carolina. City of Charleston. July 6, 1789. One Shilling Three Pence. “Hemp Rope and Tobacco Plant” vignette. Remainder. PMG graded Extremely Fine-40.

Fr. SC-197. A remarkable printed note with its full and complete outer Sheet Margins intact and not trimmed, Unique as the only example known as such. This unsigned Remainder note’s PMG holder states, small selvage tears (several small splits located in the wide outer selvage margins left and right, each measuring about 1.5” long at each side.) Some creases and soiling, likely from the printing plate when made, on the extraordinary extended margins. The central standard printed note is extremely well centered within massive margins never before seen. It is likely that this note exists having been kept as a sample printing used as an early Printer’s Proof. A wonderful “museum” specimen, and a great opportunity for Colonial Currency rarity and South Carolina currency specialists.
