1872 South Carolina 20 and 50 Dollar E.B. Wesley Uncut Notes PMG MS67 EPQ - 4-Note Sheet
Millionaire's Legacy Resurfaces After 143 Years
In 1872, millionaire Edward Wesley received $1,000,000 in notes from the state of South Carolina designed like intricately engraved currency, printed in sheets of four. But in 1873 South Carolina reneged, leaving Wesley with the unredeemable notes. Recently a portion of the original Wesley notes resurfaced. When they were offered to us, we snapped them up, and they're now available for you to add to your collection. Two 20 and two 50 dollar notes are printed on one sheet. Each show intricately engraved vintage vignettes, including the exact portrait of George Washington used on our current $1 note! Each sheet of four different notes is certified as being from the E.B. Wesley Collection and graded by Paper Money Guaranty (PMG), a division of Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). This example grades MS67 EPQ (Exceptional Paper Quality). This may be a once in a lifetime opportunity. When this small Wesley hoard is gone, we don't know if any more of these historic notes will ever resurface, or even if any more exist!
