    Extremely Rare $1/16 Vase of Flowers Note

    North Carolina April 2, 1776 $1/16 Vase of Flowers Fr. NC-153f PCGS Apparent Fine 15.
    This former Newman Collection note is the sixth of the extremely rare lowest denomination types from the series and one of handful we have observed over the decades. From the face, this note has a solid appearance and a sharply detailed vignette. The blooms in the footed vase seem to burst forth. A repeating diamond pattern is at the left inside the border. Noted with "Repaired Splits; Mounting Remnants on Back." We have auctioned one example, inferior to this, in our September 2009 Midnight Ride Collection sale. That PMG Very Good 10 Net example realized $690. Ex: our Eric P. Newman Internet Part 3 sale, May 2017, lot 89170, where it realized $2,115; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Mike prevailed over stiff competition in that auction. The $1/16 April 2, 1776, Halifax types appear infrequently and usually in only the most advanced cabinets like Boyd, Newman, and Coltrane. Very few Colonial note auctions have had all six $1/16 notes cataloged together.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
