    New York January 6, 1776 (Water Works) 4s PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ. A super Water Works note from the scarcest of the four issues. Well signed, broadly margined and beautifully bright, this is #862 of only 2500 printed. Top-grade New York notes are rarely seen, and this example is as good as it gets, with outsize margins, ideal centering of both sides and tremendous eye appeal. They were printed on a light fine stock for the face and a dark heavy stock for the back that were joined together prior to printing. An exceptional example that has been awarded both the Gem grade and the EPQ qualifier by PMG. One of the signers of this note is N. Bayard, likely a descendant of Nicholas Bayard, Peter Stuyvesant's nephew and the namesake of Bayard Street in lower Manhattan.
