    Description

    Rhode Island July 2, 1780 Complete Double Sheet of Sixteen PCGS Apparent About New 50.
    An attractive fully issued double sheet that contains sixteen Rhode Island Guaranteed notes, two of each of the following denominations: $1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $7, $8, and $20, and has normal notes size margins all the way around. An appealing aspect of the notes from this issue is that the border cuts and emblems on the backs were the same as were used for the January 14, 1779 Continental Currency issue, thereby creating crossover appeal for collectors of that series. Each of the notes is numbered and signed on the face by Comstock in brown ink and Bowler in red ink. The guarantee on the back is signed by Arnold. Embossing and natural paper surfaces are visible through the holder on this double sheet that has remained intact for 232 years despite the number of collections it has been housed in during the intervening decades. The Apparent grade has been assigned for multiple small problems only one of which a small hole affects any of the notes. Not a great sheet but it has the potential for being cut into 6 or 7 perfect Gems and a group of Choice and AU notes.
