    Superb October 1, 1755 5 Shillings Franklin & Hall Note

    Pennsylvania October 1, 1755 5 Shillings Fr. PA-67. PCGS About New 53.
    A superb Franklin and Hall-imprinted note, and perhaps the finest known from this issue. Razor sharp printing clarity, broad face margins, and board-like crispness combine to create exceptional eye appeal. This is the second highest denomination from this Franklin and Hall printed series. In a horizontal format with a perpendicular nature print back with the imprint of B. FRANKLIN and D. HALL below. The horizontal pillars at top and bottom have the abbreviated denomination inverted with a black FIVE and white SHIL on the gray background. The signatures of Johnathan Evans, Thomas Crosby, and John Reynell are crystal clear. Plate A. This is a beautiful example, and perhaps exceeded only by very few Franklin and Hall Pennsylvania notes from this period. Most worthy of bringing a runaway price as this has museum-caliber history and condition.

    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.
