    Very Sharp $8 Leopard

    North Carolina April 2, 1776 $8 Leopard Fr. NC-165a. PCGS Extremely Fine 40.
    One of the higher denominations from this interesting and popular series. The note is very sharply printed and bold. It is balanced beautifully with even, generous margins. The leopard's spots are well defined; this is another very enchanting period image from the engraved plates used for this issue. This is a problem free example, unusual for any note from April 2, 1776. This is conservatively estimated compared to its lovely eye appeal.

    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.
