    Extremely Rare Zenger Printed 5 Pounds

    Colony of New York December 10, 1737 5 Pounds Fr. NY-101. PCGS Fine 12 Apparent.
    This example is from the extremely rare and early 1737 John Peter Zenger printed series notes. Very few exist in any condition, and only some of the major collections were fortunate enough to have held them. It is trimmed all around and shows some central stains. PCGS notes "Splits, Tears, and Minor Damage; Tape Repairs on Back; Minor Stains." These detractions are not severe enough to interfere with the note's importance and collectibility. Historic and desirable.

    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.
