    A different style "Army Certificate," payable at Warrenton and from a new enactment. Retroactive in use to compensate the former line troops from the State. A small format certificate printed on laid paper. 12.5 cm by 9.5 cm. Similar to the previous, but the paper is thinner. The ornamental bordering is even on all sides and indented at the left. The typeset obligation had blanks for issuance. No. 868. Issued and signed by two commissioners. It has heavy face endorsement, but is not endorsed on the back. Rare, as the issue was not assumed by the Federal assumption plan in 1790. Noted with "Small Edge Splits and Minor Damage at Top Center." There are variations of this type known to us.

    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.
