    Complete September 26, 1778 Blue Detector Sheet

    Continental Currency September 26, 1778 Uncut Double Pane Sheet of $60-$50-$40-$30/$20-$8-$7-$5 Blue Counterfeit Detector Notes Fr. CC-86DT to CC-79DT. PCGS Very Fine 35 Apparent.
    This is an impressive, complete double-sheet of sixteen blue counterfeit detector notes comprising two denomination sets from the issue date. It is beautifully printed and boasts strong paper originality. The emblems and backs are deeply inked and boldly executed. This is a wonderful opportunity to study the mottoes and vignettes, including the exquisite nature prints. We have handled two of these full sheets with the last example, PCGS Extremely Fine 45 Apparent, realizing $4,406.25. This is nearly as sharp. Noted with "Edge and Internal Splits; Minor Stains." The petty faults deter minimally from this beautiful showpiece and rarely offered double sheet.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    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.
