    North Carolina May 4, 1758 20s PCGS Extremely Fine 40.
    Although certainly not problem free, as PCGS indicates with its italic grade, this is the nicest looking and most intact example we have seen for any of these extremely early North Carolina typeset notes. PCGS notes "stains; repairs; designs and signatures redrawn." The comments are totally correct, but the percentage of the note that has been repaired is far smaller than what we are used to seeing. Only five letters of the text are affected and the edges of the note are original all of the way around. Extraordinary quality from an extremely rare issue that is unpriced in any grade in Newman. Both grading services combined have examined nine examples of this note, the highest at PMG is a 15. None of the notes that PCGS has examined appear on their pop report as all are apparent or italic. It is an extreme likelihood that this italic 40 is the top pop piece from both services combined.
