    Description

    North Carolina December, 1768 £5 PCGS Apparent Very Fine 35.
    Serial number 91 is observed on this well signed example. The Newman reference does not list the print quantities for the denominations. The £5 notes were the highest denomination of this issue. Among the other acts passed in late 1768 was one for the creation of the town of Charlotte in Mecklenburg County. There was also an act to "Encourage the Importation of British Copper Half-pence and for making Them a Tender for the Payment of small Debts" at a rate of twelve half pence for one shilling of Proclamation Money. This £5 note has nice eye appeal. The apparent grade was assigned due to a repaired internal tear at left and a small repaired edge tear at top left.
