    Very Rare April 11, 1778 Yorktown Detector Sheet

    Continental Currency April 11, 1778 Yorktown Issue Uncut Single Pane Sheet of $40-$30-$20-$4/$8-$7-$6-$5 Blue Counterfeit Detector Notes Fr. CC-78DT-CC-76DT-CC-71DT/CC-75DT-CC-72DT. PCGS Extremely Fine 40 Apparent.
    This is a key blue counterfeit detector sheet and rarely offered for sale. The denomination array is different than previous series as this issue adds a new $40 denomination. The lowest denomination is $4 on the issue date. Very boldly printed. Some gutter folds are a bit heavy or slightly intersect notes. Noted are "Small Splits; Tape Repair on Back; Missing UR Corner Tip." Individual detector notes from the resolution are difficult to obtain, but a sheet is even more desirable. We have handled only one eight-note pane, back in 2006. It realized $8,050 graded raw About New. This boasts pedigree and is a showpiece.

    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.
