    New London, CT - Union Bank in New London 1 Penny August 6, 1792 Newman page 115, Haxby CT-320 UNL. PCGS Fine 15 Apparent.
    This change-bill is from the earlier-dated Newman and Haxby listed small format scrip note series; it is denominated in the English system. This simple note is composed of typeset text, ornamental borders, and a crude emblem with one grapevine (the Connecticut seal has three) cupped within the bank title. Amazingly, John Hallam (the cashier) and Jedediah Huntington (the president), both found space to sign the diminutive note. The printed back has the interesting statement "...instituted for the Benefit and Convenience of Trade, Manufactures and Husbandry" within a plain frame. Grading notes "Repaired Splits and Tears; Piece Replaced at Right." Very scarce in all grades.
    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.
