    North Carolina April 2, 1776 $1/2 GL in White Script with Toothed Border of Radial Lines Monogram Fr. NC-156f. PCGS Fine 15 Apparent.
    This second style $1/2 monogram note is the last of six different types. The interlocking monogram lettering appears to be "GL" in intricate white letters on a dark background, but this has not been specified in the Newman reference. This seems logical since there is a script "GL" (Gabriel Lewyn) monogram perpendicular on this type at the upper left. The Roman letter "GL" monogram also appears on four other notes in the series: $2 Fox, $5 Triton, $7-1/2 U. S. Flag, and $20 Rattlesnake. Like all the fractional notes, rare and difficult to obtain in high grades. Noted with "Edge Splits, Tears, and Damage; Tape Repair on Back; Minor Stains." Regardless of the noted faults, a very collectible note.
    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.
