    North Carolina May 10, 1780 $300 Aut nunquam ... Fr. NC-196 PMG Very Fine 30.
    An interesting denomination and an underrated type with the motto "Aut nunquam tentes / aut perfice" (Either finish or never begin). Printed on thin paper by James Davis. This is a former Boyd Collection note. Very deep black printing is seen, particularly on the back, and it is in a comment-free holder. Stack's Ford Part XV sale, October 4, 2006, lot 8521; F.C.C. Boyd Estate. A perfect type note from the act with a well-known pedigree for a high-grade set.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
