    Sharp-Looking $1/4 Halibut-Ex: Newman Collection

    North Carolina April 2, 1776 $1/4 Halibut Fr. NC-155h PMG Very Fine 20.
    This handsome and rare $1/4 note showing another denizen of the deep is ex: Eric P. Newman Collection. Patterned borders are on three sides, and the halibut, represented with what seems to be a little grin, is at the bottom. These are truly great topical notes that should have wide collector appeal. Well margined with the bold signature of Williams at the bottom face. A second, but faint, signature may be to the right of the serial number. The note has a natural appearance, strong paper, and fresh look. Superior to the Kings Mountain Collection example we sold in the 2011 Long Beach sale graded PCGS Apparent Very Fine 25 for $1,035. Ex: our Eric P. Newman Internet Part 3 sale, May 2017, lot 89174 where it realized $1,527.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. A tough note in any grade, but this is in a comment-free PMG encapsulation and has an elite pedigree. Perfect for a 56-member typeset from this illustrious series, and nearly impossible to obtain finer.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
