    Colorful and Well-Margined (1776) Undated $5 Note

    Georgia (1776) Undated $5 Fr. GA-81. PCGS Very Fine 35 Apparent.
    Another very charming type with a Barrel Beehive vignette at the lower right. Border variety (d). This example has considerable eye appeal in excess of its technically assigned grade. Paper originality and embossing are evident when viewed from the blank back. The note is fully margined and broadly so on three sides. The vivid red text provides lovely contrast to the black. Everything is sharply defined including the five flowing signatures. Noted with "Small Edge Splits; Minor Mounting Remnants on Back." Like several of these Newman Collection Georgia bills, superior to the Boyd collection example. In this case, Ford Part X: Lot 4539, which was not as sharp and realized $5,175 in May 2005. This is a top-grade representative of the entire issue and one of the most handsome Georgia notes from the Newman 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.
