Bold September 26, 1778 $5 NoteContinental Currency September 26, 1778 $5 Fr. CC-79. PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ.
This handsome September 26, 1778, note has only faint handling and appears Gem at first glance. The currency authorization amplified with this issue to just over $75,000,000. Many notes from the date were issued simultaneously with those following January 14, 1779, resolution. Additional $50 and $60 denominations were added with emblems designed by Francis Hopkinson (signer of the Declaration of Independence). The hand bleeding from thorns emblem and SUSTINE VEL ABSTINE motto are on the front. New nature-print backs (with crossed willow leaves) and ornaments were used. This is very boldly printed on both sides. Wide, even margins complement the perfect face-to-back registration. This lowest denomination from the resolution is better looking than most notes we have observed in higher grades and will fit seamlessly into a superb Continental set.

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.
