    Choice About New Mid-Denomination 1779 Half Sheet of Eight

    Continental Currency January 14, 1779 Half Sheet of Eight Choice About New.
    Eight of the higher denominations are represented on this half sheet. One each of the $30, $35, $40, $45, $50, $55, $60 and $65 denominations, four are unique to this final Continental issue. The sheet has but a single fold, a light horizontal that touches only the $60 and $40 notes. That leaves six Gem New examples, which includes all four unique denominations. Not the rarest of Continental half sheets with a few others known. There are also two full sheets known of these denominations. One of which has had its selvage removed and the other permanently impounded in a museum. The print quality is super, allowing even the finely detailed nature prints to be clearly seen.
