    Popular Halifax Series $3 Beehive Note

    North Carolina April 2, 1776 $3 Beehive Fr. NC-160b. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
    This is from one of the most popular Colonial note series and is composed of 56 different types, more than any other issue of American paper money. Eric P. Newman is one of very few collectors who obtained all of them. Several of the types are extremely rare as evidenced by results in previous the Newman sales. There were two different three dollar bill types from the series; the other has the alligator at the top and the beaver in a lower left oval. The bottom left of this lovely note shows a circular vignette of bees buzzing around the hive. The white-on-black floral design and text within the left and top borders adds a dramatic flair. William Haywood signed at center right, and William Williams and J. Webb penned their names at the bottom. The PCGS-noted "Repaired Edge Splits" do not diminish the charm. An excellent representative from this popular series.

    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.
