Click on an image to enlarge

This is a very beautifully designed original 1862 dated State of North Carolina $5.00 Note. It has a beautiful view of the ocean going steam ship in the center of the note. On the left hand side it has the standing view of maiden with the shield by her side. The center of the shield has the "5" denomination in the middle. If you notice there is the word wording printed on the face of the note in red ink. It reads "FUNDABLE ONLY IN SIX...." This was an attempt to assure the citizens that there would be money paid for the note. This marking is tougher to find than other versions. You have to remember by this time most of the value of paper currency was in the state or bank issuing the note. It was issued from Raleigh on July 1st 1862 and is so dated down in the lower right hand corner. The note is correctly hand signed and numbered in fine old ink. The piece of currency is in nice almost un-circulated condition. The overall size measures 7-1/4 inches by 3 inches. This nice authentic note comes in an acid free holder for display and preservation.
