DescriptionNC - Lot of 2 North Carolina March 9, 1754 40 Shillings Notes: Genuine and Counterfeit Comparison Pair.
Another intriguing set for the student of Colonial counterfeiting examples from the Newman Collection. Genuine 40s NC-82. Very strong details in the Christ Church at Newbern emblem. Well-detailed indent engraving. Most of the note is VG to Fine, but the right end is rough with pieces out. Wide margined on the bottom and with a significantly wide left indent; Contemporary Counterfeit 40s NC-82. It stands out when next to a genuine note. Lettering is poor compared to the genuine. The steeple slants a little and the church windows are badly formed. Fair, trimmed across bottom, lower right corner off. This counterfeit is rare.

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.
