North Carolina April 2, 1776 $1/8 Block of Six PMG Very Fine 20
Six of the eight different $1/8 notes from this complex and fascinating issue are represented on this sheet. It has all of the animal representations and is missing only the two monogram varieties. Having never seen any multiple of $1/8 examples before, we are unsure if this is a complete sheet or if the original sheet had the original two notes attached. From the margin size and overall appearance, this certainly appears to be an uncut sheet and PMG has assigned that title. Whatever the case, this is a unique Colonial item and even with its obvious defect, which PMG calls a "Large Split," it remains a Colonial currency prize. That split affects only two of the six notes, the "steer" and the "lion."
