    Continental Currency February 17, 1776 $1-$2-$3-$4-$8-$7-$6-$5 Counterfeit Detector Uncut Sheet PMG About Uncirculated 53.
    All of the dollar denominations for this issue compose this sheet. Previous owners of this counterfeit detector uncut sheet are F.C.C. Boyd and John J. Ford, Jr., though since its last auction appearance, it has lost its extreme upper left corner tip. Splits are also cited on the PMG back label. It remains attractive and has both a center vertical fold and a center horizontal fold. Counterfeit detector sheets were distributed by the Continental Army in order to suppress British and Tory printed counterfeits. Many counterfeit detector sheets were thrown away after the war, and if they did not meet that fate, they were later cut down into individual notes in order to supply collectors. These two actions have left very few for the collectors of today to pursue.
