    Exceptional Grade February 26, 1777 Baltimore N-1.1 $30 Counterfeit

    Continental Currency. February 26, 1777 $30 Newman 1.1 Contemporary Counterfeit Fr. CC-62CF. PCGS Choice New 63PPQ.
    There are a few different counterfeits known of this issue. An exceptional example. No. 4221. Printed on thin paper.


    Newman 1.1: Engraved.

    On the face: In the text, the base of the B in Baltimore is low. In the date, the base of the 6 in 26 is level with, instead of higher than, the 2 preceding it. In SI of the motto, the tail of the S is flat and extended. The S in FACIES tilts too far to the right.

    On the back: The upper right loop of the P in Printed is missing so as to resemble a large lowercase g. The dot over the i in Printed is missing. The baseline of Hall is much lower than the baseline of by.

    The grade is amazing for any contemporary counterfeit note. An underrated and undervalued Continental note which would fit perfectly into any high-grade Continental Currency type set.

    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.
