Rare December 29, 1785 20 Shillings Newbern NoteNorth Carolina December 29, 1785 20 Shillings Fr. NC-214. PCGS Extremely Fine 45 Apparent.
This 20 shillings from the last series of North Carolina notes is rare, and unpriced in the Newman reference. This is an interesting two-sided printed series with a vignette at the left face and the Thomas Davis imprint on the back. The 20 shillings vignette is an intricate version of the angel Gabriel blowing his trumpet while above a church. The face is bright and three margins are wide. Noted with "Missing LR Corner Tip; Foreign Substance and Stains on Back," which are not severe flaws. Based on researched auction appearances, this is a rarer denomination than the 40 shillings from the act.

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.
