    High Grade Original North Carolina $5

    Charlotte, NC - $5 Original Fr. 399 The Merchants & Farmers NB Ch. # 1781 PMG Choice Very Fine 35.
    A beautiful First Charter North Carolina note which is in extraordinary condition for its type. According to the National Currency Foundation census, this is one of only ten Original fives from all banks in the state combined, and it certainly ranks as one of the very finest of any in the census. The colors are spectacular and the note displays only the barest traces of any real circulation. The only detraction at all is a minor edge repair in the right margin which affects nothing. This rarity is worthy of a place of honor in any serious North Carolina collection.
