    Genuine New York 1771 10 Pounds Note

    Colony of New York February 16, 1771 10 Pounds Fr. NY-167. PCGS Extremely Fine 45 Apparent.
    This is a handsome series of New York bills, the first printed since 1760. They were much different than the earlier notes in size and style. As with the other genuine notes from the series, Gallaudet engraved the intricate border cuts and New York Arms. On this denomination, the left border cut has been flipped so that NEW YORK now faces downward (done to prevent note-raising from the lower denominations, which have NEW YORK facing upward.) The placement and orientation of the perpendicular denomination to the right of the NEW YORK border varies depending upon the denomination. Also variable is whether the denomination under the Arms is above or below the counterfeit warning. On the 10 pounds, "CC" with the shilling symbol is at the bottom facing downward. The denomination "X.L" is to the left of the Arms, and the "200s" is above the counterfeit warning. The signatures of Theophylact Bache and A. Lott are bold, and Walter Franklin's is fainter but legible. The laid paper quality on this note is very natural and appealing with rather subtle faults noted by grading as "Edge Splits." Margins are wide all around, and the note is bright and crisply printed. A superior grade, genuine note from the issue.

    Estimate: $300 - $600.

    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.
