    Extraordinarily Rare and Very High Grade (Mountain) Lion 1754 North Carolina Four Pence

    North Carolina March 9, 1754 4d Lion PCGS Extremely Fine 45.
    A relatively massive hoard of 1754 and 1748 North Carolina notes hit the market a few decades ago. They were virtually all very damaged, very low grade pieces. This cataloger saw the hoard early on and cannot recall a single example of this mountain lion note in that rag tag assortment. This piece is simply gorgeous, with four wonderful signatures, incredible detail, excellent margins, and fully bright paper. The italic grade has been assigned for small repairs; mounting remnants and stains on back. We do not see the repair and the remnants and stains on the blank back are one and the same. From the face, this note is simply incredible. Unless our archive is being wonky today, we have never sold another example of this note and have only sold one each of the key and monogram varieties for this denomination. It is certainly possible as PCGS has graded only this example and PMG has yet to see one.
