Exceptional Gem New 66PPQ May 9, 1776 $2 NoteContinental Currency May 9, 1776 $2 Fr. CC-32. PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
An exceptional May 9, 1776 $2 note, and among the finest from the series. It is perfectly centered on the face with boardwalk margins. The sharply defined grain being threshed by a flail emblem, encircled with the motto TRIBULATO DITAT (Affliction improves it), is at the right. Visible blue fibers in the margins attest to its extraordinary paper originality. Signed by Thomas Coombe (attributed as a Tory signer in the New Netherlands Sale #65, December 3-4, 1975, Affleck Ball Collection) and Samuel Morris. The nature print of raspberry and filbert leaves on the back is richly defined. This is a stunning example for the highest caliber Continental currency cabinet.

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.
