    Extremely Rare Pennsylvania July 20, 1775 Complete Sheet

    Pennsylvania July 20, 1775 Uncut Full Sheet with Double Impression of 20/20-30/30-10/10-40/40 Shillings Fr. PA-177 to 180. PCGS Extremely Fine 40.
    A remarkable uncut Colonial Currency sheet, and possibly the only example extant. This is a scarcer Pennsylvania series, and an uncut sheet from this issue was not present in the F.C.C. Boyd collection sheets auctioned in the Ford Part VI sale in October 2004. The sheet structure is quite interesting. The four denominations authorized and printed are arrayed across the face of the sheet in two rows: 20, 30, 10, and 40 shillings, plate A; in the second row are the same four denominations, but plate B. The 40 shilling notes shows J. Smither. Sculpt. in the top border cut. Both sides of the sheet are tête-bêche, and printed opposite to the faces with the same configuration. This was a common printing practice at Hall and Sellers for efficient printing and drying time, and paper use. Each sheet comprised four notes of each denomination and had a total face value of 400 shillings (20 pounds). This is a bright and fresh sheet, very well printed and with well-defined nature print backs. Handling folds are minimal and difficult to see except upon close inspection. One signature and the serial number on each note of the back side of the pane are faint. A key uncut sheet for the specialist.

    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.
