    Savannah Court-House 1766 Written Date Certificate

    Province of Georgia 1766 1 Pound Handwritten Date Fr. GA-45. PCGS Fine 15 Apparent.
    An interesting series of Georgia certificate that is quite rare fully signed and issued. A lengthy typeset obligation in black and red commingled inks explains the note's purpose for "Encouragement of Settlers" and "rebuilding the Court-House in Savannah." Like almost all the Georgia Colonial notes from the era, high-grade examples are nearly impossible to obtain. For the technical grade, the red textual colors are bold and the note is above the norm. Noted with "Splits, Tears, and Minor Edge Damage; Repairs; Backed." A rare, historic Georgia Colonial note.

    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.
