    Raleigh, NC- State of North Carolina 25¢ Dec. 1, 1815 Cr. 4
    A wonderful discovery which indicates that this truly rare note was preserved only by happenstance. It comes with a one piece letter/envelope combination addressed to an English MP in Leicester with a postmark of November 28, 1821. There is also the written notation on the inside of, "Paper Money present from Cousin Adam." We can all give thanks that Cousin Adam's thoughtful gift to his English relative was this exceptionally rare signed and issued early North Carolina state note, which the Shull reference lists as a R-11 (2-4 known), so extremely rare that even a value is omitted. Very Good, an important piece of history saved only by the merest whim of fate. (Total: 2 items)
