    Appealing Highest Denomination 1776 Sterling Pound

    Georgia 1776 Sterling Denominations 1 Pound Fr. GA-68. PCGS Extremely Fine 45 Apparent.
    Rare in all grades, this highest denomination from the 1776 Sterling series is very seldom encountered in this condition. Similar to the 10 shilling notes. A typeset layout using black and red texts. "GEORGIA" is in red at the left and the denomination "One Pound" in the other three sides. Five well accomplished signatures. This serial number 239 is illustrated on the color plates of the fifth edition of The Early American Paper Money of America on page 44. The margins are close, but the overall paper quality is outstanding for the type. Noted only with "Small Edge Tears." The color is strong and the note is very appealing. Quite underrated in this superb state and superior to both examples in the Boyd collection.

    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.
