Rare FB Monogram $1/4 NoteNorth Carolina April 2, 1776 $1/4 FB in Black Script Monogram Fr. NC-155d. PCGS Very Good 10 Apparent.
Another rare low-denomination type with a circular "FB" monogram at the lower left. The interlocking (or intertwined) initials are in black on a light background. The diminutive face at the center of the monogram may have served as a secret mark to deter counterfeiters. The assigned low grade is deceptive. The note has a full appearance and has never been repaired. Noted with "Edge Splits and Tears." This is only the second example we have cataloged for sale, and it is a difficult note to obtain.

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.
