James Wilson Amanuensis Signature TypeContinental Currency January 14, 1779 $50 James Wilson Amanuensis Signature Fr. CC-97. PCGS Extremely Fine 40.
The signature of James Wilson, Signer of the Declaration of Independence is seen on two series, the April 11, 1778 Yorktown issue and the final January 14, 1779 notes. This is a James Wilson amanuensis signature and noted as such by PCGS. There are differences in the "Jas." and there is no right side sweep of the "W," which immediately distinguishes it from the genuine. This is a sharp looking note with modest wear, bold color and an illustrative amanuensis signature. These are very scarce and extremely collectible.

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.
