    Description

    North Carolina May 15, 1779 $25 PCGS Apparent About New 50. This is the variety bearing the motto, "A free Commerce." In the right-hand border, the word "Dollars" is spelled with a "Q" rather than an "O." Oft times, these seeming mistakes were deliberately done as sort of "secret marks," which in theory counterfeiters would somehow not notice and therefore neglect to copy. Likely more often than not, these secret marks were simple mistakes. The secret-mark story was simply a cover up for sloppy work. This cataloger often includes secret marks in his wrqte ups. The note is not priced above the EF grade in Newman, where it is valued at $1000. This nice About New has a repaired edge split at the top center which accounts for the apparent grade.
    From The Midnight Ride Collection


    Estimate: $800 - up.
