    North Carolina August 21, 1775 $10 PCGS Very Fine 25.
    The highest denomination from the August 21, 1775 series with Twelve Arms Supporting Liberty Cap vignette. Again, Georgia had not yet sent a representative to the Continental Congress by that date, explaining the presence of only twelve arms. The italicized grade is for restorations and pieces replaced, which is accurate. But the pieces are entirely blank margin area. But for part of a single letter, the signatures are bold and original and the unusual vignette is crystal clear. The motto is HANC TUEMUR HAC NITIMUR, which Newman translates as, "This we guard, for this we strive." This note is vastly superior to the Newman example, which realized just into four figures.
