    Original Packaging for J.H. Piatt & Co. note shipment

    Cincinnati, OH- (John H. Piatt & Co.) $5-$3-$2-$1 Wolka 0653-04-03-02-01 Uncut Sheet and shipping materials
    The value of this lot is not in the sheet but rather in the accompanying shipping materials which finally solve the mystery of who issued these sheets (assuming that the sheet and the shipping materials have always been together). The sheet grades Superb Gem Uncirculated 67 by PMG and has been, and continues to be, readily available. The shipping materials provide the "smoking gun" evidence as they indicate that the package of which they were once a part contained "1000 impressions 1, 2 3 & 5 / J H Piatt & Co." Faint impressions of the notes can also be seen on the surface of the binder next to the original twine. After nearly two hundred years we are now reasonably sure who actually issued these notes.
