Choice New 63PPQ November 29, 1775 $3 Note
Continental Currency November 29, 1775 $3 Fr. CC-13. PCGS Choice
A deeply inked and boldly printed $3 note from the second resolution of Continental currency. Hall and Sellers printed the eight denominations, $1 to $8, authorized by the resolution. They are all similar in style to the May 10, 1775, notes, except that the denomination is engraved under the emblem rather than after the obligation text. The emblem at the right shows an eagle and heron (Franklin calls it a crane) fighting, along with the motto EXITUS IN DUBIO EST (The outcome is in doubt). In his Account in the Gazette, Franklin describes the eagle as representing Great Britain and admonishes it "not to presume on its superior strength, since a weaker bird may wound it mortally." The nature-print back is perpendicular to the face. Signed by Watkins, Jr. and Garrison. The margins are complete, but closer at the left. Excellent paper originality and eye appeal. This is a beautiful type note.

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.
