DescriptionNorth Carolina April 2, 1776 $1/16 Butterfly Fr. NC-153b. PCGS Very Good 10 Apparent.
The April 2, 1776 "at Halifax" issue is among the most interesting of the Colonial notes. There are 56 distinct vignette types (seen at the lower left of each note), ranging from $1/16 to $20 denominations, and all of them merit consideration and further study. Certain types appear on different varieties of paper, depending upon what was available at the time of printing. Completion of all 56 types is an impressive task, and Eric P. Newman is one of the few to have achieved this meritorious set. We are not aware of high-grade notes of many vignette types, especially among the lesser denominations; the fragile paper often used and tight margining subjected many to the small nicks and flaws we see today. The six different $1/16 notes are all among the most difficult of the denominations to find in choice grades. The butterfly is rarely encountered in any condition, but this is an attractive example overall. Noted are "Splits and Tears; Center Split Sewn Together; Backed." This is a very collectible example.

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.
