    Rhode Island July 2, 1780 Double Sheet of Sixteen
    Previously Lot 559 from the October 2004 Stack's sale of the Ford Collection. This is far and away the most common Colonial double sheet, although with the high prices that singles are attracting due to the ascendency of the third party grading game, most all of these have been cut. Stack's mentioned that in 2004 and five years later, the effect has multiplied. Stack's graded this Gem Uncirculated for the type, which is essentially correct, although one of the notes is touched by the gutter fold that is common to all these sheets. Fifteen of the sixteen notes would grade varying numbers of Gem, most 66 and above if the cutting was perfectly executed. So few of these have still survived that the buyer with a few years to spare would likely be better rewarded by keeping this intact.
