    North Carolina May 10, 1780 $400 Thick Paper Note

    North Carolina May 10, 1780 $400 Fr. NC-197. PCGS Extremely Fine 45 Apparent.
    Common to North Carolina were several series of notes which used mottoes in the place of emblems such as those used on their April 2, 1776, issue or the Georgia seal notes. There is only one motto type for this denomination from the series, "Mutare vel timere / sperno" (I refuse to change or to fear). A border composed of various type ornaments is around the periphery, with inner borders creating end panels for North Carolina Currency at the left and the denomination at the right. The back shows the denomination as CCCC Dollars. Printed on thick paper by James Davis with his imprint on the back. A "Small Edge Tear at Bottom" and "Minor Stains" are noted by grading, but there are wide margins on three sides.

    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.
