Choice First United States Issue $3 NoteContinental Currency May 20, 1777 $3 Fr. CC-64. PCGS Choice New 63.
The First United States issue, named for the placement of "The United States" into the top border cut, has traditionally been considered the second hardest resolution to find. In high grades, this is especially true. The printing is very sharp, with the eagle and heron fighting emblem lifting off the note in a three dimensional manner. The face margins are clear and even. The note is centered perfectly on the paper. This has a PPQ look, and the paper surfaces appear immaculate to us. This is tied with one other note as finest graded by PCGS. PMG reports not grading a note above Very Fine. A marvelous $3 type from this famous title issue.

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.
