    North Carolina November 21, 1757 £5 PMG Fine 12 Net.
    This exceedingly rare, 1757 French and Indian War North Carolina issue note that was authorized for payment of taxes. It has four full margins with a whole and complete appearance. Net graded, backed with contemporary period laid paper with wonderful writing and even a signature endorsement upon its otherwise blank reverse. It is well circulated, yet superior in quality for this issue. Tied as the Finest PMG Certified of only two NC-94 notes as both grade Fine 12 (unless this same note was submitted twice). Signed by John Starkey and Thomas Barker. These notes were hand-dated both 1757 and 1758. They were completed in manuscript. These public notes were typeset and printed by the historic North Carolina printer James Davis. This note compares very well against the Newman plate illustration on this issue.

    Estimate: $1,400 - up.
