    Gem New 66PPQ May 9, 1776 $7

    Continental Currency May 9, 1776 $7 Fr. CC-37. PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
    This is another gorgeous May 9, 1776 Resolution note and is the PCGS top population example by two full grades. Their report lists only two PCGS Choice New 64PPQ notes below it. A very fresh, natural note with superb printing on both sides. The image on this denomination is of a severe storm at sea; the motto is SERENABIT (It will be calm). The paper, as made, has a host of blue paper fibers seen on the left face border, entering the emblem just slightly. Very wide face and back margins are seen. The back is slightly shifted over to the left. Otherwise, we believe it would have hopped up one more grade. A beautiful example in all regards.

    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.
