    Description

    North Carolina July 14, 1760 5s PCGS Very Good 10.
    There were twelve denominations for this issue. Newman does not provide descriptions for any of the lower denominations until the five shillings note. Further illustrating the fact that lower denomination notes tended to survive in much smaller numbers, if at all, is the fact that our consignor's collection begins with the five shillings denomination for this series. He was able to collect the highest six denominations of the twelve. The typeset notes from this issue were signed by Lewis De Rosset, John Starkey, John Swann, and Samuel Swann. Though their signatures have faded somewhat, all four remain visible on this five shillings note. The italicized Very Good 10 grade was assigned by PCGS due to splits, tears, damage, repairs, and pieces missing; the usual suspects when it comes to many of these circulated Colonial notes. The crowns point downward just above the "Death to counterfeit" warning near the bottom of the note.
