Fr. RI-290 thru RI-293. This is a gorgeous and fully original, Double-Sheet with Eight Notes in total, each note being extremely well printed with full red and brown ink signatures. All four margins are the original Jumbo in size, as made. There is a single vertical fold in the margins between the two panes of four notes. One fold touches silightly into the left edge of one note on one pane, but is not into any other note. All eight notes are strictly Crisp Uncirculated with significant amounts of original press text embossing retained within the paper. Full Double-Sheets are becoming much harder to locate in recent years, as many have now been cut to make individual wide margin notes. (8 note Double-sheet).
