    Complete Denomination Set of July 2, 1780 Rhode Island Notes

    Rhode Island July 2, 1780 Cut Sheet of Eight $1; $2; $3; $4; $5; $7; $8; and $20.
    All of the denominations from a cut sheet of eight are being offered in this lot. The face border cuts along with the back cuts surrounding the emblems for this issue were engraved by a former counterfeiter for the British, Henry Dawkins. Another 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. The bold signatures of Comstock and Harris are seen on the face of these lovely notes bearing serial number 1425. The guaranty on the back was not signed. The PCGS assigned grades, in order, are: Gem New 65PPQ; Very Choice New 64PPQ; New 62; Very Choice New 64PPQ; Gem New 65PPQ; Gem New 65PPQ; Superb Gem New 67PPQ; Apparent Choice About New 58 with internal tears at bottom left cited as the reason for the apparent grade. A great opportunity to obtain attractive examples of all eight denominations from this issue with one winning bid. (Total: 8 notes)
