    Extremely Rare 1777 No Resolution Date $4 Note

    Georgia 1777 No Resolution Date $4 Fr. GA-86. PCGS Very Fine 25 Apparent.
    This type is one the great rarities of the Revolutionary War Georgia issues and is only the third note we have encountered in the past quarter century of sales research. As we discussed earlier, the Boyd and Midnight Ride Collections each contained an example of this unpriced rarity. But many of the greatest Colonial note collections were without a representative of this type. This Liberty Cap seal type uses border (c), the only border observed for this type. The highest record for this note is the $23,000 for the Boyd piece sold in May 2005; that example is currently off the market and there are no immediate plans for its sale. The Midnight Ride Example certified by PMG as VF30 EPQ fetched $9,775. The present note is very acceptable, complete with wide selvage at the left and bottom. The mottled staining is mentioned in the Apparent notations of: "Stains; Small Edge Tears." This significant note completes a trio of $4 Georgia rarities that have never been offered in a single sale to our knowledge. An auspicious occasion for serious specialists and students of this field.

    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.
