    North Carolina May 15, 1779 $100 PMG About Uncirculated 50. Number 755 out of only 1000 printed. Most of the smaller denominations of this issue have 10,000 examples printed. This Hundred Dollar is a rare note in any grade. This is the very first piece that Heritage has handled, although we've handled large quantities of the lower denominations. It is also the only $100 that PMG has yet to grade. This is an example of what makes Colonial very interesting. The fact that there is no cohesive census allows closet rarities such as this note to exist. The careful specialist, which is exactly what the owner of the Midnight Ride collection is, can acquire truly rare notes for very modest prices with devotion and patience. This hundred is listed at $1500 in the EF column of Newman with no higher grade given.
