    Very Rare Franklin Printed 1746 Note

    New Jersey July 2, 1746 15 Shillings Fr. NJ-61. PCGS Good 4 Apparent.
    Despite the very low condition, this is a historic and rare New Jersey Colonial note. The series was printed by Benjamin Franklin. The enactment for the notes, June 28, 1746, specified these notes as "Money of America." The sizes and styles for New Jersey Colonial notes for the next few decades were established with this series. The face had the Royal Arms and obligation, and the back showed a nature print design. Notes from the series are seldom seen. The 15 shillings from the Boyd Collection, raw graded "Good," realized $4,312 at the Ford Part III sale in May 2004. Noted with "Splits, Tears, and Minor Damage; Stains; Backed." Its desirability as a rare series and historic Franklin-printed note makes it very collectible in any grade.

    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.
