    Broadly Margined May 1, 1760 5 Pounds Franklin and Hall Note

    Pennsylvania May 1, 1760 5 Pounds Fr. PA-114. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
    In high grade for any for any note from this B. Franklin and D. Hall-imprinted series. Printed on a thinner paper than some earlier Franklin and Hall notes. This type uses two-color text printing on both sides, though a little more subtly on the back. Plate B. The broad margins at the top and left really stand out and enhance its tremendous face appeal. The other margins are excellent for the type. The three leaves in the nature print on the back display their intricate structure. The red in the color type areas is bright. The three signatures of Joseph King, Thomas Tilbury, and Thomas Gordon remain crisp. Noted with some "Small Edge Splits" by PCGS Currency grading. Those are minor faults considering the broad margins and fullness of the note. There is a crossed out endorsement in the back right border, and a small foxing patch appears on the Arms. A highly collectible example from 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.
