    Incredible Uncut New York Water Works Sheet of Eight

    New York March 5 ,1776 (Water Works) 8s Uncut Sheet of Eight Very Choice New. Only the second example we've seen of a Waterworks sheet in the forty some-odd years in the business. These notes were printed on two separate pieces of paper that have been joined together somewhere in 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 and the white edges are all the way around. The heavy dark back paper was often flawed. On this sheet, there is only one such flaw in one of the notes, which prevented the back from printing completely and allows the back of the lighter front sheet to show through. There are no folds or defects save for four pinholes that fall in the wide margin area between the notes. All eight notes are numbered and signed. Taken individually, four of the notes are perfect Gems, and four would be considered Choice. Incredible item that should find its way into a significant Colonial collection.
