    North Carolina May 17, 1783 20s Justice Contemporary Counterfeit PCGS Very Fine 25.
    A rare contemporary counterfeit type with the Justice vignette and the motto, "DO AS YOU WOULD BE DONE BY." This example is the nicest of the three we have offered. PCGS has commented, "Repairs; Pieces Replaced," which is accurate although the note retains a wholesome look and the vignette and text are unaffected by the restorations. A sleeper rarity in any condition. Our Newman example was in far worse condition and realized just under $1,000. This note is worth far more.
