    Extremely Rare July 10, 1733 Redated 1735 2 Shillings Unusual Back Printing Plate Style for Official "Quartering" of Change Denominations

    Colony of Connecticut July 10, 1733 Redated 1735 2 Shillings Fr. CT-41b. PCGS Very 30 Apparent.
    This is a re-dated 1735 face plate "Tall" Bill of Credit similar to the last. Printed on laid paper by Timothy Green. The cartouche in the center with obligations is topped by a gorgon head, and concealed at bottom is the dove vignette assigned to this denomination. The arms are at lower left. The text in the block printed back is in an ornamental frame with an unusual four quadrant A QUARTER OF TWO SHILLINGS printing, allowing the notes to be quartered and officially circulated for the lesser denomination. This series was not in Boyd, and this is a superior quality "Tall" Bill. Noted are "Small Edge Splits and Repairs; Minor Edge Nick at Left; Stains." There is some fold foxing, which is the mentioned staining, and the split seems minor. The face of the note is overall quite bright, and for an early Colonial specialist, this note is a true prize. Over the past few decades, perhaps less than a dozen Connecticut early "Tall" Bills from all series have been offered for sale; most of these were from the Boyd collection.

    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.
