    Handsome April 25, 1759 Franklin and Hall 10 Shillings

    Pennsylvania April 25, 1759 10 Shillings Fr. PA-98. PCGS Very Fine 25.
    The B. Franklin and D. Hall imprint notes from this period are difficult to find in the faultless condition this example displays. This is the second-lowest denomination of the issue, probably Rarity 7, and much scarcer than the four higher denominations. The balanced face design has the Penn arms in the center of the text. The side columnar border cuts are very well detailed. There is honest circulation and wear on the horizontal crease, but this plate A note has great paper integrity. Margins are wide on three sides and just a tad close at the top. The back nature print is well detailed and the imprint crystal clear. A handsome example and underrated in this attractive grade. An excellent representative of the Franklin and Hall notes from the period.

    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.
