    Three Water Works Notes - New York January 6, 1776 (Water Works) 2s PCGS New 62, March 5, 1776 8s PCGS Very Choice New 64PPQ & March 5, 1776 8s PMG Choice About Unc 58 EPQ.
    All three of these Water Works notes are very attractive and two of the three have earned the premium quality designation. The notable feature of this issue is that they were printed on two separate pieces of paper and glued together prior to printing. The papers were very varied. The paper used for the face was a fine quality with light quality. The paper used for the backs was dark and coarse. On two of these notes, the face paper is longer than the back paper. On the 64PPQ 8s, the face paper was so much longer that it received the entire printer credit line on its back. We've only seen this once before and it's really quite neat, at least to us. Very valuable for a group lot.
