Bold $1/2 Fugio NoteContinental Currency February 17, 1776 $1/2 Fr. CC-21. PCGS New 62PPQ.
The February 17, 1776 small denomination notes, with Benjamin Franklin-designed motifs on both sides, are fascinating. The face shows the Fugio design that was used on the Continental Dollars, and later the 1787 Fugio coppers, with FUGIO, the sundial, and MIND YOUR BUSINESS motto. The backs correspond to the coin designs with WE ARE ONE in the center encircled by AMERICAN CONGRESS, with a glory of rays around. These elements are all enclosed by links in a chain bearing the names of the original thirteen colonies. The Fugio notes should be considered Fractional Continental Dollars. The smaller vertical format with this design has an excellent layout. The four fractional denominations were printed on large 24-subject double-pane sheets with each denomination having plate positions A, B, and C. This C position note is bold and original. The side margins on the face are close or slightly in. However, the back is beautifully centered and fully margined. An excellent type note and always coveted by collectors.

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.
