    PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ Rhode Island Guaranteed Issue Two Pane Full Sheet

    Rhode Island July 2, 1780 Full Double Sheet of Sixteen $1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $7, $8 and $20 PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    An attractive remainder 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. It has its full selvage right out to the deckled edge of the paper. 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 Adam Comstock in brown ink and Caleb Harris in red ink. It is considered a remainder as the guarantee on the back is unsigned. Embossing and natural paper surfaces are visible through the holder on this lovely double sheet that has remained intact for 238 years. The sheet is printed on paper watermarked CONFEDE and RATION on two lines. This is the highest-graded double sheet that we have sold and it is appearing for the second time. At our FUN Auction in 2010 it realized a very strong $13,800. That number is likely out of reach this evening, but this could easily once again be a five-figure item.
