    Attractive New York 1771 5 Pounds Contemporary Counterfeit

    Colony of New York February 16, 1771 5 Pounds Contemporary Counterfeit Fr. NY-166. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
    This is one of two different counterfeit plates observed by Eric. It is a very sophisticated copy, and its key diagnostic is that the base under the settler and Native American is slanting left to right, rather than straight. "Edge Tears" are cited by PCGS, but the note is evenly margined all around with the pettiest of nicked corners at the upper right. A rare counterfeit type.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society


    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.
