    Likely Unique May 9, 1776 Full Sheet of Sixteen

    Continental Currency May 9, 1776 Uncut Complete Sheet of Sixteen Choice About New.
    The highest quality full Continental sheet in The Collection of a Patriotic American. It does have the ubiquitous centerfold, along with the two always-present needle holes, but both are away from the notes themselves. There is another single very soft fold that turns four of the notes into Choice AU, but the other twelve notes are perfect Gems. To the best of our knowledge, this is the only full sheet known for this issue. There are at least three eight-note half sheets--two of which do not compare in quality to this, and the third example is permanently impounded in a museum and its grade is unknown. A wonderful combination of real rarity and extremely high quality.
    From The Collection of a Patriotic American

    Estimate: $40,000 - up.
