    North Carolina April 4, 1748 5 Shillings Crown Fr. NC-61. PCGS Apparent Very Good 10.
    This is an extremely rare, low-denomination note from the issue. Only 2,000 were authorized and few are known today. None were graded at PCGS prior to this Newman Collection note. This type was not in the North Carolina accumulation sold years ago or in the Boyd collection. It is the only note listed on the Track & Price census. Mostly complete, with some paper loss at the left indent and lower right corner. The crown vignette is sharp. Backed on contemporary, thick paper. Noted with "Edge Damage" and as "Backed." Despite some faults, this example presents an important opportunity to obtain a rarity. This was the first we cataloged when we sold it with its Newman pedigree. Ex: our Eric P. Newman Part VIII sale, November 2017, lot 29031 where it realized $840; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. A "sleeper" rarity.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
