    High Grade John Hart Signed "Raid Note"

    New Jersey February 20, 1776 15 Shillings John Hart Signature Fr. NJ-172. PCGS New 62.
    All six Signers of the Declaration of Independence who appear on currency are represented in this sale: John Hart, Francis Hopkinson, John Morton, William Ellery, James Wilson and George Clymer. The first offered is this New Jersey note signed by John Hart; notes with his signature have always been popular. The February 20, 1776 examples are scarcer than those from March 25, 1776. Hart's bold signature is seen here with that of James How. The third signature was not accomplished, and some of this series was seized by the British. They are referred to as "Raid Notes" by collectors. The cutting is not perfect, but the color, embossing and signature are excellent.

    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    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.
