    Choice March 1, 1769 3-Pound Note

    Pennsylvania March 1, 1769 3 Pounds or 60 Shillings Fr. PA-133. PCGS Very Fine 30.
    The highest denomination note of four emitted from this March 1, 1769, issue. This is the second David Hall and William Sellers issue and is in a vertical format. The Penn family coat of arms is at the lower right, with text and obligation within ornamental borders on three sides and the denomination at the top. Although it says "Indented," none of the known examples have been indented. Two of the three signatures remain bold. The nature print back has "LXS" deftly outlined at the lower right of the leaf. Plate position A and fully genuine. The issue was plagued with counterfeits, which led to its withdrawal. This is a high-grade note and rarely seen as such. Sharply printed, well balanced, and choice for the series.

    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.
