Description(New York, New York) - Corporation of the City of New York February 20, 1790 1 Penny Newman page 305, Fr. NY-238, Harris H15. PCGS Very Fine 30.
The small change notes from this series certainly should be classified as "paper coins"; they were created to satisfy "the want of small change" as cited from the Newman reference. Three denominations were authorized and over 1,000,000 notes printed. The common style printed by Hugh Gaine, New York used ornamental borders on both sides. On the face, the engraved signature of City Treasurer D. Phoenix is in script. The back has the denomination in the center and imprint at the base. Most notes from the series are worn, and many are damaged. This is a sharp example of the type.

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.
