    Two-Color January 14, 1779 $35 Odd Denomination

    Continental Currency January 14, 1779 $35 Fr. CC-94. PCGS Choice About New 58.
    The eleventh and final Continental Currency resolution included several innovations and changes. Red printing was added to the emblem and border on the face. The new border cuts used UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA (this title was also used on the Amsterdam United States Loan office forms printed for use by John Adams's office). Notes were printed on watermarked paper. Sixteen denominations (including six new ones), using two arrays, were issued. Over $95,000,000 was authorized, much of which was necessary to retire note types that were heavily counterfeited, such as Yorktown notes. This $35 is the first of the added odd denominations. A plow in the field with the motto HINC OPES (Hence our wealth) is at the left, an emblem designed by Francis Hopkinson. With sharp color on the face, well margined, and crisply printed. There is only some light handling. An interesting and attractive type.

    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.
