    Appealing Rhode Island Full Double Sheet

    Rhode Island July 2, 1780 Full Double Sheet of Sixteen $1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $7, $8 and $20 PCGS Very Choice New 64.
    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, and 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 Comstock in brown ink and Harris in red ink. 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 232 years despite the number of collections it has been housed in during the intervening decades. We sold another sheet graded 66 in our 2010 FUN Auction that realized $13,800.
