    North Carolina 1756 - 1757 (written dates) £5 PCGS Very Fine 20.
    This note, with a handwritten and printed date of 21 April 1756, is close in style to the £5 Ford example, which was used as the Newman plate note. However, there is a slight difference between the two. On the fourth line, this note reads, "6 Per Cent." The "p" in "per" is not capitalized on the Newman plate note example. Notes from the several issues following this one are often confused for these notes, so these five pound notes from North Carolina 1756 -1757 issue are far scarcer than realized. The Ford example, graded Fine, brought $1,495 in May 2004. Pieces replaced from major restoration noted.
