    Excessively Rare AGRICULTURE 2 Shillings December 29, 1785 North Carolina - Possibly One of Only Two Known

    North Carolina December 29, 1785 2s Plough PCGS Fine 15.
    An extremely rare note that apparently was missing from the Newman collection. PCGS has graded only a single apparent or italic example, which we presume to be this note. The grade was italicized for restorations, all of which seem to be in the vicinity of the vertical center fold. The signatures and important agriculture vignette are untouched by any problems. We have so many incredibly rare North Carolina notes in this sale that a novice would have the impression that they could buy one whenever they wanted. For many of these notes, this included, the average time between appearances can be measured in decades. The perfect storm of Ford, Newman, the Tar Heel Collection, and this collection have presented an opportunity to form the finest North Carolina Colonial grouping to ever be assembled.
    From the Thomas A. Gray Collection of North Carolina Colonial Currency
