    Very Likely Unique December 29, 1785 5 Shilling North Carolina Note

    North Carolina December 29, 1785 5s Ship near fort PCGS Very Fine 35.
    Unique to our best knowledge and a note whose past history we are unable to locate. It is the only example that either grading service has seen and it is an absolute beauty. Both signatures are strong, the note is very well margined, the Commerce vignette is well printed and totally clean and the entire note has the visual appearance of an About New piece. PCGS has commented restorations and while we are unable to spot them we do not doubt their presence. Any collector seriously pursuing North Carolina Colonials simply must go home with this note.
