    Genuine Plate Connecticut May 10, 1775 40 Shillings

    Colony of Connecticut May 10, 1775 40 Shillings Fr. CT-182. PCGS About New 50 Apparent.
    The study of genuine and counterfeit Colonial comparisons greatly interested Eric. Often, a counterfeit type is rarer than the genuine; this is determined on a case-by-case basis. A very sharply printed Timothy Green impression and uncanceled note from the May 10, 1775, issue date. The denomination is below the top border cut, enhanced by the index hand on the left. The Arms appear within the obligation text, and William Pitkin's signature is easily discerned. Grading notes "Pinholes" and "Minor Stains," but the appearance is very pleasing, and embossing from the face is seen on the crisply printed back.

    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.
