Patriotic (1776) Undated $8 Man Holding a Sword NoteGeorgia (1776) Undated $8 Fr. GA-82. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
This $8 "Man Holding a Sword" denomination would pair beautifully with a Revere-engraved "Sword in Hand" note. It is accurate to call this the southern version of Revere's iconic imagery. Border variety (f). The figure in the lower right vignette is facing forward, brandishing his sword in a menacing manner, and wearing a finely detailed coat. There are five signatures. Well margined on all sides, and the paper quality is mostly sound. There is a dark foxing blot in the right margin. Noted with "Stains; Minor Ink Erosion; Minor Mounting Remnants on Back." Notes from the series are underrated compared to many color seal types. This denomination is deservedly the most sought after due to the popular imagery.

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.
