    Stunning Superb Gem New 68PPQ May 9, 1776 $4

    Continental Currency May 9, 1776 $4 Fr. CC-34. PCGS Superb Gem New 68PPQ.
    This stunning May 9, 1776 Continental Currency $4 denomination is the finest graded by PCGS by two full grades. Directly below this mesmerizing Boar example are three PCGS Gem New 66PPQ notes. This incredible note dwarfs those and boasts all the characteristics you would demand from a note nearing perfection. The well-inked emblem showing the boar charging into a spear shows the motto AUT MORS AUT VITA DECORA (Either death or an honorable life). Margins beyond ample are perfectly even, and each corner tip is razor sharp. The printing on both sides is vibrant, deep and wondrous to the eye. This is an example for a premium set of Continental Currency notes or for the collector who seeks the very best.

    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.
