    Vibrant and Well Margined New York 1771 1 Pound Note

    Colony of New York February 16, 1771 1 Pound Fr. NY-163. PCGS Very Fine 35 Apparent.
    A vibrant and very bold example from the series; very much above average for the issue. The denomination at lower left is in Roman numerals, here "XX" with the shilling symbol; to the left of the Arms is the denomination as "I.L.," with "10s" above the counterfeit warning. The Arms and border cuts by Elisha Gallaudet are clear and crisp, the printing by Hugh Gaine is well accomplished, and the margins are all wide. The signatures of Samuel Verplanck, Theophylact Bache, and A. Lott are all clear. Although "Small Internal Tears" are mentioned by grading, the note has considerable eye appeal. A bright example.
    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.
