    Description

    North Carolina April 2, 1776 $20 Rattlesnake PCGS Extremely Fine 45.
    This is the highest and final denomination of this 56-note series and one of only four denominations with only a single variety. The vignette on this high grade piece is a coiled rattlesnake with the popular "DON'T TREAD ON ME" motto. These are seldom seen and, when they are, the rattlesnake is generally very unclear. On this example, the rattle, the snake's eyes, and the detailed design of the skin are all plainly visible. The note is well signed, well margined, and overall magnetically attractive. PCGS has noted small repaired edge tears, which seems correct, but are hard to spot and very minor. Quite possibly one of the finest examples of this note in existence.
    From the Thomas A. Gray Collection of North Carolina Colonial Currency
