    Continental September 26, 1778 Blue Detector Sheet

    Continental Currency September 26, 1778 Uncut Full Sheet of $60-$50-$40-$30/$20-$8-$7-$5 Blue Counterfeit Detector Notes Fr. CC-86DT-CC-83DT/CC-82DT-CC-79DT. PCGS Choice About New 55 Apparent.
    The Continental Currency detector sheets printed by Hall and Sellers were important in aiding comparisons with suspected counterfeits. This detector sheet has its broad margins remaining and is a bold example. The $50 and $60 denominations are new, and have Hopkinson-designed emblems; instead of using leaves on the back, they show tiny arrows on the first and a bow on the second. The two additional denominations alter the array from the April 11, 1778, Yorktown type sheet. Noted with "Small Splits and Repairs; Minor Stains." Those faults are confined to wide margins. Very strong printing is seen on both sides. A most pleasing sheet.

    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.
