    Incredible Full Sheet of 1778 Georgia Notes

    Georgia May 4, 1778 $20 Complete Sheet of Eight Choice About New. An incredible full sheet of Georgia's. On rare occasions four-subject half sheets are seen, but this full sheet of eight is one of the very few to survive in this form. The sheet is quarter folded with a few light holes along the horizontal fold. Each of the notes is gorgeous, beautifully signed, numbered and issued, which is rarely the case when full sheets are found. There are two additional light folds that turn four of the notes into AUs, but the other four notes would individually grade Gem New. There is a minor insect hole that occurred when the sheet was folded--consequently, in an origami-like manner, there are now eight identical holes that are well away from the notes. All five signatures are bold, including that of William Few, who went on to be one of the signers of the U.S. Constitution nine years after the signing of these notes. An incredible item in its own right, but sadly, with the grading game now in full blossom, the fate of this historic sheet will likely involve a scissor as the value of the individual high-grade pieces surpasses the value of the whole. There are some contemporary pen notations in the margins that do not touch the design of any of the notes.

    Estimate: $25,000 - up.
