    Newman 1.1 September 26, 1778 $60 Counterfeit

    Continental Currency. September 26, 1778 $60 Newman 1.1 Contemporary Counterfeit Fr. CC-86CF. PCGS About New 53.
    The counterfeits of the $60 type were very deceptive. No.7030. Printed on thick paper.
    Diagnostics:

    Newman 1.1: Typeset. Deceptive.
    On the face: In the text, the dot over the i in receive is on the left, instead of slightly to the right, of the dot over the i of milled below. The base of x in Sixty is even with, instead of lower, than the base of the subsequent t. The upper end of the first s in Con-gress aims diagonally upward instead of curling downward.
    On the back: The bitter end of the top left serif of the H in Hall points upward.

    A very well inked note on both sides. Both false signatures are sharp. A faint vertical fold and some corner handling are seen, but there is not a crease. A choice example.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society

    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.
