Sharp February 17, 1776 $1/6 Fugio NoteContinental Currency February 17, 1776 $1/6 Fr. CC-19. PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ.
The February 17, 1776 small denomination notes are fascinating, with Benjamin Franklin designed motifs on both sides. The face has the Fugio design used on the Continental Dollars, and later the 1787 Fugio coppers, with sundial and MIND YOUR BUSINESS. 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, joined together. The Fugio notes should be considered Fractional Continental Dollars. The smaller vertical format with this design has an excellent layout. The $1/6 is the lowest denomination of four, printed on double-pane sheets of twelve, using three letter positions per denomination. This is a sharp looking Plate C note with bold printing and a nicely accomplished signature. Complete margins are on all sides. There are only four finer graded at PCGS. An excellent type note in this grade, and at first glance, it has the appearance of an even higher grade.

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.
