    Exceedingly Rare December 29, 1785 6 Pence

    North Carolina December 29, 1785 6 Pence Thirteen Stars Fr. NC-208 PCGS Very Fine 25.
    This is another rare, late-date series from North Carolina, and this note is a great rarity. Mike is fortunate to have three different notes from the act. This is a Newbern assembly issue as noted in the obligation. Printed on NORTH CAROLINA watermarked paper by Thomas Davis. A circle of 13 stars is at lower left within a rectangular frame. On the four sides are "Sixpence," "Currency.," "Death to" and "Counterfeit." PCGS comments: "Restorations; Small Edge Tears." The note has a full and pleasing appearance. Ex: our 2018 Long Beach sale, lot 20266, where it realized $9,000; Thomas A. Gray Collection of North Carolina Colonial Currency; Stack's Ford Part XV sale, October 4, 2006, lot 8531 (realized $3,116.50); F.C.C. Boyd Estate. We know of only two confirmed examples; it was missing from several advanced collections (Newman did not have the denomination). An extremely important issue which is only available when advanced collections come to auction.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
