    Very Rare 1713 Redated 1735 Middle Plate Note

    Province of the Massachusetts Bay October 14, 1713 3 Shillings Redated 1735 Fr. MA-60p. PCGS Fine 15 Apparent.
    The rampant counterfeiting of several note types led to further note series and new plates. This is a complex series of notes with several denomination plates (Low, Middle and High) and multiple face redatings lasting for over 20 years. This note is fully genuine and shows the new dates vertically at the right end of the lower half. The later dates, starting with 1777, are just below the obligation text, which is in a "tombstone" cartouche at the top half of the note. The Royal Arms appears at left in the lower half; the signature block is in the center. Most of the back is printed with intricate, but lightly printed, flourishes. Noted are "Splits, Tears, Minor Damage, and Repairs; Stains," which accurately describe the imperfections. The note is mostly full bodied and is a great rarity.

    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.
