All in 1856 should be $1000.  
 
To see an actual NC marriage bond and the wording used on the bonds and
images of them go to:
http://www.ncgenweb.us/guilford/VitalRecords.html
 
Toward the middle of the page (a little below that) you will find marriage
bonds for which images of the bond have been supplied for some.  Look at
Brown under B for an example of one from the $1000 time period.  Many
earlier bonds from the 1700s will be handwritten entirely, with no "fill in
the blanks."
 
Once a person reads a bond, and doesn't just rely on a abstract, the purpose
of the bond is clear.
