    Very Rare Stone-Arabia Church Penny

    (Stone Arabia, New York) - Consistory of the Reformed Dutch Church, at Stone-Arabia Sept. 1792 1 Penny Newman page 308, Harris H1. PCGS Very Fine 20 Apparent.
    A very rare and interesting town name church money note. Similar in size and style to several issues from the area printed by C. R. and G. Webster Albany. The pattern bordering all around uses three different styles. The text is across with the denomination at the top and imprint at the base. The back has the town name and "Church Money" enclosed in ornamental brackets; as on the face, ornamental bordering is around the perimeter. Hand signed by DeWitt Peck. This appears to be the DuPont Collection note, obtained at the March 1993 Smythe auction, as it clearly matches the catalog plate. A bold note overall, though noted with "Splits, Tears and Repairs; Small Hole near Top Center." This note is superior to the one example we have sold, a PMG Choice Fine 15, for $747.50 at the 2010 Boston ANA Sale.
    Ex: R. M. Smythe & Co. Public Auction #115, March 30, 1993, lot 2240; James A. DuPont Collection; 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.
