    Extremely Rare 1713 Redated to 1716 3 Shilling Bill

    Province of the Massachusetts Bay October 14, 1713 Redated 1716 3 Shillings Fr. MA-60b. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
    An extremely rare Massachusetts "Tall" Bill printed on laid paper from a successively redated copper plate that was first engraved in 1713 and was reused until 1740. Printed from the "middle denominations plate," this example is very early with only 1714 and 1716 redates. At the top is fancy scrollwork, text is within a cartouche, and at lower left, the Royal Crown emblem with the motto of Order of the Garter: Honi Soit Qui Mal y Pense (Evil to he who thinks evil of it). The top half of the back is printed in red with floral details. There are four signatures, two of which are accomplished in a strong hand. A very handsome Bill of Credit and choice for a note from this period. The plate details are very strong and the note is well printed on both sides. Back red printing color is vibrant. Broad size with excellent paper quality. Noted with "Splits and Repairs." There are two antique paper strips on the back vertical splitting, but the bill faces up beautifully. One of the finest looking examples from the few 1713 redated plates known.

    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.
