    December 29, 1785 Two Shilling Six Pence North Carolina - One of Only Three Known to Us

    North Carolina December 29, 1785 2s 6d PMG Choice Fine 15 Net.
    An excessively rare North Carolina note, this piece is one of only three that we are aware of, and the sole example graded by PMG. It has been severed and reattached, but the Phoenix vignette at left with the motto, "MELIOR RESURGIO," which translates as, 'I return improved,' remains quite bold. A great opportunity to acquire a rare North Carolina note listed as Rarity 8 (1-3 known) for a more modest price.
