M224b Deckle divided longitudinally

These moulds are unusual in having the deckle divided lengthwise (i.e. from one hand of the vatman to the other) to form two long sheets, probably for bills. Generally this is avoided as the wave has to "jump" over the deckle divider which can lead to formation problems. Traces of remove watermarks can just be seen. Made by E Amies (date unknown).
