    Exceedingly Scarce Pennsylvania 1785 Full Sheet of Eight

    Pennsylvania March 16, 1785 Complete Sheet 3d, 9d, 18d, 2s6d, 5s, 10s, 15s, and 20s PMG Choice About Unc 58 EPQ.
    Extraordinarily rare to say the least. This final Pennsylvania issue is very scarce even as individual pieces. If we've ever seen a multiple, we cant recall it and we certainly have never seen a full sheet. The Newman book values these individual notes at $500 in VG, $2000 in XF, and $4000 in UNC. While those numbers are wildly optimistic, they're indicative of the scarcity of these notes. For comparison, the common Pennsylvanias are valued at $75 in VG and $400 in UNC. The sheet has been folded lightly, but the folds affect only a few of the notes, leaving three or four AUs and the rest Choice Uncirculated pieces. Most all of the eight pieces on this sheet are the finest examples we've ever sold for their specific denomination. In some instances, the finest examples we've previously handled have been Fines. PMG has graded well over 40 examples from this issue, the highest is an AU53, and all but four of the notes have been VF or lower. Every one of these eight notes would be the finest graded. Taken individually, there is over $10,000 in current market value for the eight notes, but a sheet of this rarity will certainly not be cut for individual pieces. A real challenge to estimate, but our best guess is...
