Very Rare Lansingburgh A. Platt 2 Pence(Lansingburgh, New York) - Ananias Platt "at his House in Lansingburgh" Dec. 31, 1790 2 Pence Newman page 306, Harris H9. PCGS Very Fine 20 Apparent.
This is a very rare issuer, and the only two notes we have verified were in the DuPont Collection sale of March 1993 by R. M. Smythe & Co. The 2 pence in that sale was the Newman plate note, serial number 11, illustrated in the 5th and all prior editions. The note is uniface, printed on laid paper by C. R. & G. Webster, Albany, with imprint at the bottom. Fancy pattern bordering, wider at the ends, encloses the text and date. The denomination is at the top. Noted with "Edge Splits, Tears, and Repairs." Despite a few faults, the note is attractive overall.

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.
