    Continental Currency May 10, 1775 Counterfeit Detector Uncut Sheet of Eight Very Fine.
    Heavily handled and folded rather hard between subjects. There are a number of short edge splits and two that don't quite categorize as short. A small piece of tape is present on the back of the $8 subject and there are a few minor internal splits. The reality of this sheet is that the visual appeal is massively better than the description makes it sound. As with most off-grade items in this wonderful collection, they are simply the best available. To our best knowledge, this is a unique detector sheet for this issue. All eight vignettes are wonderfully sharp, including the $7 rainstorm on the mountains which is often indistinct. An unfortunate fact, as the vignette provides a wonderful allegory as stated by Q. David Bowers in The Whitman Encyclopedia of U.S. Paper Money, "that war, now in progress, will eventually end."
