    High-Grade July 22, 1776 $7 N-1.2 Counterfeit-The Newman Plate Note

    Continental Currency. July 22, 1776 $7 Newman 1.2 Contemporary Counterfeit Fr. CC-44CF. PCGS About New 50.
    A high-grade and boldly printed note. No. 12937. Printed on thin paper. The Newman plate note, illustrated on page 464 in the appendix.


    Newman 1.2: Engraved.

    On the face: The previously-described counterfeit has been partially corrected. In the motto, the 3 has been corrected to S in SERENABIT. The base of the V in the SEVEN to the right of the serial number is high. In the text, the s in entitles tilts too far right and its base is low. The P in SPANISH is open at the top right, so as to appear as an F. The second S in SPANISH tilts to the right. The top of the O in DOLLARS below the vignette is open so as to appear misspelled as DULLARS. Also, there is an extra space between the D and the open O or U.

    The back remains in the wrong juxtaposition relative to the face. (The stem of the leaf points to the viewer's right.)

    In a high grade for any counterfeit type. This is essentially as prepared and ready to pass in commerce. A beautiful and desirable Newman plate note. Note: N.1.3 exists with the same diagnostics as this variety, but with the back in the correct juxtaposition relative to the face.

    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.
