    A choice example and nearly as made. No. 26277. Printed on thin paper.


    Newman 1.2: Engraved.

    On the face: Same as Newman 1.1 previous. In the text, the baseline of entitles is slightly higher than the baseline of the. The base of the V in Value is high. The letters ac in according are spaced too closely. Under the vignette, the period following DOLLARS is missing.

    On the back: The nature print background has been reworked to muddle its appearance. The mesh-like effect is still apparent in the upper right quadrant. The back is still in the correct juxtaposition relative to the face. (The stem of the leaf points to the viewer's left.)

    Very well inked on both sides. With just minor handling. Another significant condition rarity.

    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.
