    Continental Currency January 14, 1779 Double Sheet of Sixteen. This is a beautiful double sheet containing two examples of each of the eight highest denominations from this final Continental issue. It was previously lot 521 from the Stack's October 2004 sale of the John J. Ford, Jr. Collection. There is the normal fold between panes, with its two needle holes, and a few very light folds elsewhere on the sheet. The colors are bright, particularly the red, and the signatures remain strong on each of the sixteen examples. Sheets from this issue were never considered common and most of the few existing examples have been cut to maximize the grades of individual notes. This beautiful sheet hammered at $8000 five years ago, which was a bit optimistic at that time, but a level that could be equaled today.
