    Description

    New York January 6, 1776 (Water Works) 4s PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ. From the third Water Works issue, indicated by the 3 at upper left, this is a very attractive example with nice margins. PMG has only assigned a higher grade to one other note. The color is uniform and the details are exceedingly clear. The design on the back was produced by Christopher Colles and was the proposed steam operated water pump. This note is numbered 355 and was signed by N. Bayard and John H. Cruger. Only 2500 of these notes were printed by Hugh Gaine. Gaine was a native of Ireland. He worked with James Parker for a time and then set up his own press circa 1750. He died at the age of 81 on April 25, 1807.
