    Facsimile of the 1722 Massachusetts Penny Round

    Massachusetts - Parchment Facsimile for Nathaniel Paine's Monograph of the 1722 1 Penny Round (type of Fr. MA-71). PCGS About New 53PPQ.
    A trimmed facsimile 1722 Penny round, but printed on a parchment-like paper. The paper is unlike that used for the original notes as it is bright white and does not curl along the edges due to the flat printing process used. The design is also different. The small index-hand insignia is on the wrong line; it should be on the second line pointing toward "One Penny" rather than with "1.d," which should comprise the entire first line (cf. Newman Part VI: lot 19481). There are other subtle differences with the genuine in the typography and bordering. Some minor bends and handling.

    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.
