Early 1729 5 Pounds Handwritten Counterfeit BillNorth Carolina November 27, 1729 5 Pounds Handwritten Contemporary Counterfeit Fr. NC-34. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
This is a higher denomination contemporary counterfeit from a fascinating and uniquely styled early series. This example was condemned in the period and "Counterfeit" is penned diagonally across the face. The affixed paper seal at bottom center is well done, and there is only a sole back endorsement. A bright note with sharply drawn "signatures." Noted with "Center Split Tape Repaired; Small Edge Tears, Damage in LL Corner." Overall, an attractive example from this early, handwritten 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.
