Nice Quality 1778 Georgia $30 Wild Boar Note

SOLD

Details

Georgia. May 4, 1778 $30. Boar and spear. Extremely Fine or better, deftly repaired. Number 612. Signed by William Maxwill, William Few, Richard Wylly, William O'Bryen, and Nehemiah Wade. A bold and attractive large-size note on the State of Georgia, featuring a nicely impressed and complete deep green seal of the boar at the tip of a spear. Printed in Savannah and backed by the spoils of captured Tory property (including land and slaves), relatively few of these impressive notes survive. Most that do have seen better days, and heavy wear or repairs are de rigeur. This one, like most, suffered some splits along its vertical centerfold. Many have split totally apart and been reassembled. This one looks to have split from both top and bottom and been professionally and deftly repaired to heal the splits, but it never fell completely in two. Aside from a missing lower right corner, the condition is otherwise excellent, with good embossing, superb color, and very good paper quality. There is some toning at the extreme borders, which serves more as proof that this has never been trimmed than any kind of detriment.

William Few, one of the five signers of this note, signed the U.S. Constitution.
