    High-Grade $1/3 Fugio Note

    Continental Currency February 17, 1776 $1/3 Fr. CC-20. PCGS About New 50PPQ.
    The February 17, 1776 small denomination notes with Benjamin Franklin designed motifs on both sides are fascinating and popular. The face has the Fugio design with the sundial and MIND YOUR BUSINESS used on the Continental dollars, and later, the 1787 Fugio coppers. 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 encircled by linked chains bearing the names of the original thirteen colonies. The Fugio notes should be considered fractional Continental dollars. The smaller vertical format notes with this design have an excellent layout that made them distinctive from other Continentals. The notes were printed on 24-subject sheets with a double-pane of twelve, using three letter positions per each of four denominations. This sharp-looking Plate A $1/3 note has bold printing and the nicely accomplished signature of Cornelius Barnes. An excellent example with crisp and vibrant originality. This would be perfect for a type set or for inclusion with a Fugio coppers 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.
