Sharply Defined 1748 2 Shillings ThistleNorth Carolina April 4, 1748 2 Shillings Thistle Fr. NC-58. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
An attractive example of this early Proclamation Money issue with a thistle emblem at the lower left. The four signatures are well penned. This type was once much rarer, reflected by the penciled price on the back corner of the note: "50.00." However, most examples of this type from the hoard were damaged and vastly inferior to this note. Noted are "Small Edge Splits and Repairs; Minor Ink Erosion." A premium example with marvelous eye-appeal.

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.
