    Spectacular May 17, 1783 North Carolina

    North Carolina May 17, 1783 10s About New. This note is from one of the classically rare issues in Colonial Currency. Few examples are known, and most all known examples are rags. This note is essentially new, and it's problem-free save for a few well-closed, inconspicuous tears and also the right face margin's being cut on an angle into the design. The vignette is sharp and clear, and both signatures are legible, as is the serial number 212. Neither Newman nor Friedberg lists this issue above the Very Good grade. This is the first example of this issue that CAA has handled, and one of only a half-dozen for all denominations combined that this cataloger has ever seen. It's by far the best example of the entire issue of which we know. Est. 5,000up
