    Rare June 28, 1776 4 Shillings

    New Hampshire June 28, 1776 4 Shillings Fr. NH-168. PCGS Very Fine 35.
    This is a rare, small format uniface note printed on coarse, sturdy paper. Typeset with ornamental bordering around the perimeter, and the denomination in the border on three sides. Of the 6,000 authorized, it seems nearly all were redeemed for later notes. Boyd had the only collection with several high-grade notes from the Act. This is a gorgeous highest denomination note with a strong signature of John Smith. There is a broad sheet margin at the bottom. With its very natural paper, this example has the appearance of a PPQ-designated note.

    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.
