Rare North Carolina 1729 Hand Accomplished Counterfeit BillNorth Carolina November 27, 1729 40 Shillings Handwritten Contemporary Counterfeit Fr. NC-32. PCGS Very Fine 20 Apparent.
This handwritten note with drawing at the top is from a rare and unusual indented Bills of Credit series. The hand accomplishment used to create the obligation across the top left the issue prone to fraudulent notes. However, even these contemporary counterfeits are rare today. This example was condemned in the period and "Counterfeit" is penned across the face. The affixed paper seal is well done and the back endorsements are convincing, but in the time period issued, the signatures were probably improper. There are a few small pieces missing, and the note is designated as Apparent, with "Edge Splits, Tears and Damage; Tape Repairs on Back." These are infrequently seen in choice condition. An affordable example from this rare series.

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.
