    There are six different dates of these early City of Albany notes, and over 100,000 notes were authorized to be printed. Printed on both sides by C. R. & G.

The back has the denomination across the center and the imprint at the base. Very few notes were redeemed, and solid examples like this are very scarce. Noted with "Splits, Tears, and Repairs." A broad note and quite attractive.

    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.
