    Very Sharp Halifax Issue $8 Leopard

    North Carolina April 2, 1776 $8 Leopard Fr. NC-165a PCGS Extremely Fine 40.
    Like many of the Colonial notes with the Newman Collection pedigree, a splendid example and one of the finest of the type we have seen. One of the higher denominations from this interesting and popular series. The note is very sharply printed and bold. It is balanced beautifully with even, generous margins. The leopard's spots are well defined; this is another very enchanting period image from the engraved plates used for this issue. This is a problem free example, unusual for any note from the April 2, 1776 Halifax "56." Lovely eye appeal and first sold by us in the Newman Part VII sale in October 2015 for $2,232.50.
