||Continental Currency January 14, 1779 $50 James Wilson Amanuensis Signature Fr. CC-97. PCGS Extremely Fine 40. The signature of James Wilson, Signer of the Declaration of Independence is seen on two series, the April 11, 1778 Yorktown issue and the final January 14, 1779 notes. This is a James Wilson amanuensis signature and noted as such by PCGS. There are differences in the "Jas." and there is no right side sweep of the "W," which immediately distinguishes it from the genuine. This is a sharp looking note with modest wear, bold color and an illustrative amanuensis signature. These are very scarce and extremely collectible. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society
