    Extremely Rare Albany June 22, 1775 5 Shillings

    New York The City and County of Albany June 22, 1775 5 Shillings Fr. NY-171.2. PCGS Fine 15 Apparent.
    This is an extremely rare official municipal issue, thought to be Rarity 8 (1-3 known). The series was not in DuPont, the foremost collection of Colonial private and municipal notes ever formed. Many of DuPont's private issue notes plated in Newman are still considered unique. Uniface and printed on laid paper, this is a wide format, typeset note. The left end has flourishes, and ornamental borders appear on the top and the right. With three signatures as authorized; Jacob Lansing, Jr. and Jacob C. Ten Eyck, are visible, and the third faded. Full from the face, but with some partial backing to reinforce it. Noted with "Splits, Tears, and Minor Damage; Repairs; Partially Backed; Minor Stains." Only the Boyd collection had a few denominations from the issue, otherwise rarely encountered in any condition.

    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.
