    Bold May 31, 1709 10 Shillings

    Colony of New York May 31, 1709 10 Shillings Fr. NY-2. PCGS Extremely Fine 45 Apparent.
    The second denomination from this very early series of "Tall" bills. This was also printed on the same sheets with the 5 Shillings, two of each, running across. Style and layout are the same as on the 5 Shillings. As above, uniface and printed in black by William Bradford, without imprint, on horizontal four-subject sheets. Typeset with the top block indented. Three very bold, "Dutch" style vanity signatures are seen at the bottom, led by Johannes DePeyster. There are also two plate positions with different typesetting arrangements. This is the "a" type with "Shillings" on the second line and the "Governor" spelling near the end of the obligation. Like the last, it has the look of a PPQ note but with very "Minor Ink Erosion in Signature" noted by PCGS. But again this is more than compensated for by the natural paper body and immaculate surfaces. A very handsome and bold note, and one of the finest we have seen or handled.

    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.
