Choice August 8, 1778 Motto NoteState of North Carolina August 8, 1778 $5 A Lesson... Fr. NC-176c. PCGS Choice About New 55PPQ.
The North Carolina motto type notes have been underappreciated by modern collectors, especially compared to the April 2, 1776 vignetted type. Many are much rarer than thought. High grade, choice and original notes like the Newman example are often impossible to locate. The lengthy slogan, "A Lesson to Arbitrary Kings, and wicked Ministers," directly references the causes and consequences of the American Revolution. This is very well printed on both sides. The face is off-center, but the back is fully margined. Superb paper quality and clarity.

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.
