    Extremely Rare and Choice Little Falls Scrip

    (Little Falls, New York) - John Porteus "at my Store, at the Little Falls" Undated (Ca. 1790's) 2 Pence Newman page 306, Harris H2. PCGS Extremely Fine 40 Apparent.
    This is an extremely rare note and series. Printed uniface on laid paper with the imprint: C. R. and G. Webster Albany. This denomination is the only example we have observed from the series. The Newman and Harris plate notes illustrate the same red-printed six pence, serial number 200. There is also an unissued 4 pence we cataloged and sold in 2007. The issuer name is verified by a small handwritten scrip we cataloged with the mentioned 4 pence note. This note has intricate bordering, with wider indenting at the left end. The text is in the right two-thirds with an oversize "O" (a drop cap) in the obligation. The denomination is at the top and in the left indenting. Bright and bold overall. Noted only with a "Small Internal Tear near LR Corner." A key Albany area private note.
    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.
