    Description

    North Carolina May 10, 1780 $250 PMG Very Fine 20 Net. There are only two varieties of this denomination, both of which bear the same Latin motto Quaerenda Pecunia primum est, which Newman translates as, "Money has to be sought first." The two varieties involve the capital "T" at the beginning of the text. It comes either boxed or unboxed. This is the unboxed "T." The upper-right corner tip has been replaced with a piece of plain paper, which PMG has mentioned, and which no doubt accounts for the NET grade, but the note has most of the attributes of a high-end VF.
