    Description

    North Carolina April 2, 1776 $1/2 Monogram with toothed border of radial lines PCGS Very Fine 35.
    This boldly printed note displays clear text and both signatures remain bold as does the serial number. As with the $1/8 and $1/4 denominations, there are eight varieties of the $1/2 notes. Within the $1/2 examples, there are two monogram varieties, one with triangles and the other with radial lines. This is the radial line variety. Baltimore goldsmith Gabriel Lewyn is credited with printing this issue and his initials appear within the monograms. On this radial line variety, his initials also appear in the upper left corner as part of the border design. The italicized grade was assigned to this note due to tape repaired edge tears according to the notation on the holder.
