    Full Sheet of May 20, 1777 Continentals--Unique to Our Best Knowledge

    Continental Currency May 20, 1777 Complete Double Sheet of Sixteen Extremely Fine-About New.
    This is the first "United States" issue where the words "United Colonies" have been eliminated. This sheet, which is unique to our best knowledge, carries two subjects of each of the eight denominations. The sheet has the always present center fold along with the three needle holes. These sheets were folded and sewn when produced, and all sheets have this same characteristic. The sheet has also been quarter-folded at one time with one of the folds bisecting four of the notes, and another partial-fold touching two others. Looked at individually, about half of the notes present are actual Gems, but all sixteen carry the visual appeal of Gems. An irreplaceable sheet that deserves a home in the very finest of holdings.
