Gem New 66PPQ Yorktown $40 NoteContinental Currency April 11, 1778 $40 Yorktown Issue Fr. CC-78. PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
The $40 Yorktown series note is the first of that denomination used in the entire Continental Currency series, and it is the highest from the resolution; the larger denomination was necessary because of inflation. The note's emblem with the CONFEDERATION motto and the All Seeing Eye of Providence shining on 13 stars was developed by Declaration signer Francis Hopkinson. It is the only Uncirculated representative graded by PCGS, making it the top population example by far with the extraordinary designation. This exemplary note is bold and original, with deep, even printing clarity upon immaculate surfaces. The face margins are boardwalk width and the back margins are full. This is a fitting capstone to an extraordinary selection of Yorktown denominations from the Newman collection.

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.
