Description: North Carolina Currency
May 4, 1758 Act North Carolina Twenty Shillings Note
North Carolina. May 4, 1758 Act. Hand-Dated September 20, 1759. Twenty Shillings. One Pound. PCGS graded Very Fine-20.
Fr. NC-96. This important note is quite impressive for its rare May 4, 1758 Issue. It is of Condition Census status for the issue, among the Finest Known. It is printed uniface, well centered with much of the outer border design detail present on all four sides. Holder reads, apparent, repaired splits, design, text, signatures and serial number redrawn. There are some deft sealed splits, primarily to the centerfold area and has some conservation. Hand-completed and dated, with a "9" written over the printed "8" of 1758. Signatures of John Starkey and Thomas Parker are present. All text and designs are bold black and clearly readable. This note is visibly quite superior to the Newman reference plate note for this issue as illustrated on page 318. A high quality example of this very rare early North Carolina Currency issue.
