    Appealing 1762 Connecticut 40 Shillings

    Colony of Connecticut March 4, 1762 40 Shillings Fr. CT-144. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
    Any note from this series is very rare, and there are few auction records to cite from the past few decades. Most importantly, this has tremendous eye-appeal. Boldly printed with a well-penned signature trio. The solitary note in the Ford-Boyd collection realized $604 in May 2004 and it was patched together, with a grade of Fair. Noted with "Small Edge Tears; Minor Edge Notch at Right." A dream note for the Colonial specialist.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society

    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.
