    High-Grade April 15, 1758 New York Note

    Colony of New York April 15, 1758 10 Pounds Fr. NY-154. PCGS About New 53 Apparent.
    There were 100,000 pounds authorized for this second Crown Point expedition series, but only two denominations were printed. A rare type, but when encountered, usually split or in unstable condition due to the thick, coarse backs used. This is a top-grade example for the type and appears nearly as made from the face. The New York coat of arms at the right is bold. Borders are on three sides with ornaments along the bottom. The three signatures of Livingston, Clarkson, and Van Horne are clear. Very well margined and deeply printed. Noted with "Minor Mounting Remnants on Back." The similar Boyd collection note, Ford Part III: Lot 634, realized $1,955 in May 2004. This note is illustrated on the color plates in the fifth edition of the Newman reference on page 51. Like that example, this is certainly one of the finest notes from the issue.

    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.
