    The Sixth War Issue 6 pounds has one of the lowest print figures of any early New Jersey Colonial note. It is thought to be Rarity 7 (4-12 known). This is serial No. 136 of only 250 authorized. Similar to prior 6-pound notes with Royal arms and red text. The Parker sage leaf back returned to black printing for this issue. Noted with "Edge Splits." The note has excellent paper body for the technical grade and sharp red color. The type was not in the James DuPont collection.

    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.
