    Superb Gem New 67PPQ Yorktown $5 Note

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 $5 Yorktown Issue Fr. CC-72. PCGS Superb Gem New 67PPQ.
    The April 11, 1778 Resolution "at York-town" series is the rarest overall in the Continental Currency genre. This is the first of an exceptional quintet of Yorktown note denominations from the Newman collection. Several are the finest, or tied for the finest, graded and certified by PCGS. This $5 Yorktown is a stellar example with inspiring eye appeal. Interestingly, there are only two Uncirculated notes graded by PCGS. Both, including this example, are Superb Gem New 67PPQ. Very bold printing and wide, even margins are on both sides, and face-to-back registration is perfect. A remarkable note in all regards. The other Superb Gem New 67PPQ note graded by PCGS sold in our April 2015 CSNS Signature Sale for $15,275. In addition to its tremendous appearance, this example boasts the famous Newman pedigree.

    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.
