    Extremely Rare April 23, 1761 Sheet

    North Carolina April 23, 1761 Uncut Sheet of 10 Shillings-15 Shillings/5 Shillings-20 Shillings Fr. NC-122-123/121-124. PCGS Extremely Fine 45 Apparent.
    The notes from this series are encountered in low grades, but as uncut sheets or any multiples they are extremely rare. We know of only one other, the Boyd Collection example which was classified, perhaps improperly, as a "half-sheet." The serial numbers are 1532-1532/1532-2532; this was the numbering system observed on the Boyd example. Printed uniface on laid paper and fully signed, numbered and ready for issue. The vertical pairs are tête-bêche in orientation with each other. Wide margins are all around, except at the lower right, which is rounded inward into the 20 shillings. Noted with "Edge Splits, Tears and Minor Damage; Stains." Each note is pen endorsed on the blank back. Not quite as impressive as the Boyd sheet sold in Ford Part VI, October 2005 for $2,990. However, this is a great rarity and one of the few early North Carolina multiples or blocks prior to 1771 known.
    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.
