    Continental Currency. July 22, 1776 $30 Newman 1.2 Contemporary Counterfeit Fr. CC-46CF. PCGS Extremely Fine 45 Apparent.
    A sharply printed example of this counterfeit. No. 17023. Printed on thick paper.

    Newman 1.2: Typeset. The above-described counterfeit substantially corrected.
    On the face: In the text, the baseline of the word BILL is now level, and the base of the I in THIRTY is even with the adjacent letters. Three capital letters have been substituted for the lowercase letters in JULY. The J in JULY has been moved under the e of passed. However, the bottom loop of the C in Congress is still wide open rather than just slightly open, and the left loop of the P in Philadelphia is still closed.
    On the back: In the motto above the left vignette, the top of the A in CONCITATÆ does not touch the outer circle. The second s in Sellers has shifted, and its base is now high in relation to the preceding r.

    Noted as "Pen Cancelled" with the inscription "Counterfeit in No. 132" at the right end of the back. Also noted are "Mounting Remnants and Stain on Back." Faces up very boldly.

    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.
