    Likely Unique Six Pence December 29, 1785 North Carolina

    North Carolina December 29, 1785 6d Thirteen stars PCGS Very Fine 25.
    Unique to our best knowledge, with its only previous appearance as lot 8531 from Stacks' October 2006 sale of the Western collection. In that sale, it realized $3,163. We can find no other mention of this note and believe it has been off the market since that time 12 years ago. PCGS's italic 25 grade has been assigned for restorations and small edge tears, all of which are minor. The text remains clear, clean, and complete on both sides. The signatures somewhat less so, but their presence is obvious. The circle of 13 stars vignette is crystal clear. An extremely significant Colonial note unpriced in any reference.
    From the Thomas A. Gray Collection of North Carolina Colonial Currency
