    North Carolina December 22, 1758 20s PCGS Very Fine 25.
    There are several North Carolina typeset series from the 1750s and 1760s; however, notes from this Edenton act issue are extremely rare in all grades. The fact that the issue was missing from the Boyd collection confirms that rarity. There were only three denominations for this issue. This is the 20 shillings variety with part of the "m" in "from" above the "n" of "in" underneath. Signed by Barker and Starkey, with the latter signature remaining only partially visible. Broadly margined on two sides with the left indent cut inward as issued. PCGS has assigned the italicized grade to this Very Fine 25 example, citing minor restorations. They are indeed minor. A similarly graded and appearing note sold in part two of our Tar Heel Collection sale in September 2016 for $1,410.
    From the Thomas A. Gray Collection of North Carolina Colonial Currency
