    Extraordinary North Carolina April 2, 1776 $1/8 Uncut Sheet

    North Carolina April 2, 1776 Sheet of Six $1/8 Notes Fr. 154f-154b/154h-154c/154a-154g PMG Very Fine 20 Net.
    This is an important North Carolina currency artifact and the only one encountered by us. The four complete margins and structure of this six-subject multiple convinces us this is a complete sheet. Six of the eight different $1/8 notes from this complex and fascinating issue form the two horizontal by three vertical array. (Missing are the exceedingly rare Mirrored H Monogram and JM Monogram types.) This sheet contains all the $1/8 animal representations: Sculpin-Heron/ Steer-Lion/ Dog-Snake Biting Sword in Scabbard, respectively, in that alignment. Since it was not listed in the appendix of the Early Paper Money of America, it would have been unknown to Eric P. Newman. PMG judges this as a sheet and encapsulates it as such, citing a "Large Split" across the center. That partial split affects only two of the six notes, the "Steer" and the "Lion" harshly; it does not sever the sheet completely. Three corner notes are quite sharp looking from the face, high grade for their respective types. A penned endorsement is on the back. Ex: our 2020 FUN sale, lot 20065 where it realized $6,000. Likely this extraordinary sheet is irreplaceable.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
