    Distinctive 1722 One Penny Round-the Rarest Denomination

    (Province of the) Massachusetts June 1722 One Penny Round Fr. MA-71. PCGS Very Fine 20.
    The Penny Round is the most intriguing and "coin-like" of the three denominations. It appears to be the rarest, with most ensconced in the four confirmed sets. Printed on parchment, uniface, with an ornamental border around a circle within which is the denomination, "Massachusetts," and in exergue, the date. The very basic design left no room for "Province of the..." to fit. Besides those cited in sets, the Ford III catalog enumerates the Roper-Altman/Haffner Sale piece and the Rideout example. An unconfirmed example was photocopied in 1979 for Ford, location unknown. Since that time, no further one penny notes have been discovered. There is some normal wear for the grade, slightly "short" at the top and a bit lightly printed. This is a great opportunity to bid upon one of the most fascinating American currency notes and this example is coming to the auction block for the very first time.

    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.
