    Rare "Signer" George Clymer Note

    Pennsylvania June 18, 1764 5 Shillings George Clymer Signature Fr. PA-123. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
    The June 18, 1764 shilling denomination notes are much scarcer than the three pence pieces because, unlike many pence notes, they were not saved in sheets or uncut strips. This infrequently encountered Franklin and Hall imprint type is signed by George Clymer, one of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence. Clymer (1739-1813) was both a businessman and a politician. He was a member of the Pennsylvania Council of Safety, Continental Treasurer, and Continental Congressman (1776-77, 1780-82). He was heavily involved with fiscal matters. Not only did he sign the Declaration, but also the Constitution. Clymer is a much rarer signer than Hart, Hopkinson or Morton on Colonial notes. He is the second most difficult signatory to acquire (William Ellery from Rhode Island is the rarest). The Clymer signature is in the center and much better accomplished in red pen than most observed. Apparent and noted with "Repaired Edge Splits; Minor Stains; Pinholes." A rare signer type and an attractive example.

    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.
