    Rare April 2, 1776 $1/8 Heron

    North Carolina April 2, 1776 $1/8 Heron Fr. NC-154b. PCGS Very Fine 25 Apparent.
    The eight different $1/8 denominations are extremely difficult to find in high grades. This Heron faces up quite well and its eye appeal complements the $1/16 Cornucopia previous to this. Sharp vignette details are seen on this quaint example of American folk art. Fully margined, it is ample at the top and right (perhaps the upper right sheet position). The Boyd note in the Ford XV sale of October 2006 (lot 8374), graded "About Very Fine" with some splits, realized $1,150. This note, offered nine years later, is superior. Noted with "Small Edge Splits; Mounting Remnants on Back" by PCGS. A very attractive representative

    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.
