    Description

    New York August 2, 1775 (Water Works) 2s Gem New. This is essentially an utterly superb example of this Wateworks issue that is about as nice as they come. This issue was printed on two separate pieces of paper that were mounted together prior to printing. The face is on a fine light paper and the back on a coarse, darker paper. Gaps, peels and all sorts of problems are caused by this mounting, making the hunt for pristine notes daunting. This one is impeccable. This note is only four numbers off from one that we sold back in 2004. Even though that note was graded Superb Gem New this example appears every bit as nice. Scarce and high grade colonial notes have entered a new demand cycle as of late and a beauty such as this should lead the charge into one lucky person's collection.

    Estimate: $1,000 - up.
