    Complete Continental January 14, 1779 Uncut Double Sheet

    Continental Currency January 14, 1779 Uncut Double Sheet of $65-$60-$55-$50/$45-$40-$35-$30 Issued Notes Fr. CC-100 to 93. PCGS Extremely Fine 40 Apparent.
    The large, Continental Currency double pane sheets are rare as many have been cut into individual notes over the past several decades. This is an impressive, complete double-sheet of sixteen fully issued notes comprising two sets of $65 to $30 notes, with all the odd denominations ($65, $55, $45, and $35) represented twice. This issue was Printed by Hall and Sellers on watermarked CONFEDERATION (on two lines) paper. This is one of two different arrays for the resolution date. Red color was added to the borders and emblems, with the diamond-shaped areas on some emblems leading to the nickname "kite-faced" notes. The backs have new nature prints. Fully issued with two signatures on each note and numbered. Well printed and bright, with the normal handling seen on these large sheets. Fully margined all around with visible spindle holes in the central gutter as made. Noted with "Small Splits and Tears; Stained." There is some scattered toning and a larger stain affecting one of the $30 notes on both sides. An excellent display sheet and one of very few we have offered.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
