Boldly Printed and Well-CenteredContinental Currency November 29, 1775 $6 Fr. CC-16. PCGS Choice About New 58.
Also from this second resolution, a very boldly printed and widely margined $6 note. At the left is an emblem of a beaver gnawing on a tree with the motto PERSEVERANDO (By perseverance) arcing above. Of this design, Franklin writes," the great tree may be intended to represent the enormous power Britain has assumed over us" and the beaver, "able, by assiduous and steady working, to fell large trees, may signify America." The buttercup nature-print back is beautifully detailed and well centered. Signed by Watkins, Jr. and Garrison. Conservatively graded in our opinion. The excellent paper originality and superior centering are immediately evident.

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.
