    North Carolina August 8, 1778 $10 Gem New. This is only the third Ten Dollar example of this issue that we have ever handled, and it is one of fewer than 30 notes from this issue when all denominations are considered together. Of those 30 notes, spread across 36 sales, only one was uncirculated, and that piece, which was graded Choice, was sold in 1997. Locating a note from this issue in this quality could easily take a decade or more, yet the price realized for this piece will almost certainly be under $1000. For value versus rarity, Colonial Currency has got to be the single most underrated area of U.S. paper money.
