    Complete Sheet of Sixteen--Red & Black 1779 Continentals

    Continental Currency January 14, 1779 Uncut Complete Sheet of Sixteen Extremely Fine-About New.
    While relatively common as a half sheet (which in this case means five or six), this issue is extremely rare as a full sheet of sixteen. Both the consignor of the collection and this cataloger know of no other examples. The sheet has the normal fold between panes and the two needle holes that are always found on the fold. It also has a few other very light folds that do touch a few of the notes. A great majority of the notes, taken individually, are perfect Gem pieces. The appearance of the sheet is spectacular, in part due to its two-color printing, but also due to the beautiful brightness of the paper and the bold two-color signatures. Irreplaceable as a collectible, and also a magnificent display item for the new owner.
