COLTRANE NORTH CAROLINA CURRENCY

Stu Levine, Bruce Hagen, and Maureen Levine submitted this preview of North Carolina currency lots in the upcoming Heritage sale of the Mike Coltrane Collection, Part 1. Thanks! -Editor

Mike Coltrane North Carolina Currency
Spans Over 200 Years in an Unreserved Special Online Auction

A diverse offering of North Carolina currency, spanning over 200 years, is featured November 29, 2020, in an unreserved special online auction by Heritage Auctions. The notes collected by Mike Coltrane for several decades include many elite types and varieties from the Colonial, Obsolete, and National Banknote series and form a panoramic narrative of currencies from Mike’s native state. Noteworthy is a complete 56-note typeset, offered individually, of the April 2, 1776, Halifax colonial issue. This complete suite has been achieved by only a handful of collectors, and we believe this is the first modern offering of all 56 different notes in one auction.

Obsolete banknotes from virtually all issuing banks and local branches illustrate the complexities North Carolinians met with using paper currency during the antebellum period. National Banknotes range from very rare late Civil War-period First Charter notes to 1929 small size examples, emitted across numerous towns. These include several rarities from the state, with many new to the census and being auctioned for the first time. We hope you will take the time to peruse this important offering exemplifying North Carolina’s rich financial history.
