    Choice New 63PPQ 1774 $1/9 Note

    Maryland April 10, 1774 $1/9 Fr. MD-60. PCGS Choice New 63PPQ.
    This is an impressive condition rarity, and important as the lowest denomination from the series. It is possibly the finest known. Like the 1767 and 1770 series, strictly Uncirculated notes are virtually impossible to obtain. This lowest denomination fractional is the first of a vertical pairing from the Newman Collection, both with serial number 11519. Secret marks were used on the face plates; in this case, a colon after "Annapolis" served as a deliberate error to prevent note raising or counterfeiting. This is well margined on all sides, with broad sheet selvage at the right, and nearly a full left indent design. The face-to-back registration is perfect for the type. This is a lovely note and worth a significant premium above the higher dollar-denominated notes from the issue.

    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.
