    This is a very rare private issuer scrip and the Newman Plate Note illustrated on page 298 of the 5th edition. This small format note was printed uniface on laid paper by C. R. & G.

Noted with "Small Edge and Internal Splits and Tears; Repairs." However, the note is bright and well margined.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
