    Condition Census Ex: Ford Collection

    North Carolina May 15, 1779 $25 A Free Commerce PCGS Banknote About Unc 53 Details.
    A remarkable grade for this scarce note. This is the variety with the "A Free Commerce" legend at the lower left. The other motto for this denomination, "American Fortitude Displayed" is far more common. Noted with Minor edge tears and small tape repair. This note is incredible, with terrific margins, strong signatures, and great eye appeal. Very scarce anywhere near this nice. Although not noted this note was originally part of the John Muscalus collection, sold in 1988. Then it sold in 2006 as part of the John J. Ford, Jr. collection, realizing in excess of $2,000 that day.
