    8s Water Works Uncut Sheet

    New York March 5 , 1776 (Water Works) 8s Uncut Sheet of Eight PCGS Choice New 63PPQ.
    Only the third example we have seen of a Waterworks sheet in the fifty some-odd years in the business. These notes were printed on two separate pieces of paper that have been joined together during the printing process. The face is on a fine light tan paper and the back on a very course, fibrous dark brown paper. On this example, the white face sheet was slightly broader than the brown back sheet. The heavy dark back paper was often flawed, but that is not the case with this sheet. All eight notes are numbered and signed. Taken individually, five of the notes are perfect Gems, and three would be considered at least Choice New. It is an incredible item that should find its way into a significant Colonial collection. It is also the first that we have auctioned in over eleven years.
