    Description

    North Carolina December, 1768 5s PCGS Apparent Very Fine 20.
    This is a scarce Five Shilling example that was printed by James Davis on thin paper from type. We have seen very few of these over the years. The note is well margined and well signed, giving the appearance of a far higher grade. However, this example has been reconstructed along a previously sewn central split as mentioned by PCGS, leaving pinholes where the thread had been. Nonetheless, this is a great-looking example of a significant rarity. The current edition of Newman lists these notes in VF at $600.
