    Extremely Rare "Second Series Daniel Fowle" Issue $5 Note

    New Hampshire July 3, 1776 $5 Fr. NH-175. PCGS Fine 12 Apparent.
    This is a high denomination example from the second Daniel Fowle, Portsmouth imprinted series of notes. Like the first Fowle series, this used an interesting ornamental and typesetting style, much different from the Massachusetts notes of the time, and thus it exhibits a special character. On the $5 denomination, the mottoes PRO BONO PUBLICO (For the public good) and LIBERTY & PROSPERITY are deftly concealed within the side type ornaments. All six denominations are unpriced in Newman and Friedberg. Noted with "Small Edge and Internal Splits and Tears; Stains." Only the most illustrious collections have been blessed with even one note from this elite 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.
