    Exceedingly Rare Lighthouse Issue Counterfeit Detectors

    Pennsylvania March 20, 1773 Uncut Pair of 14 Shillings-16 Shillings Blue Counterfeit Detectors Fr. PA-161DT-162DT. PCGS Very Fine 35 Apparent.
    This is an exceedingly rare uncut horizontal pair of detector notes. These are from a series from which we have not previously handled detectors. Unsigned, and each has the officially penned notation "to/ Detect/ Counter/ feits" in the signature block. The denominations in Roman numerals are in the bottom left corners on the lighthouse vignettes. Broadly margined, extremely so at the bottom and right. Noted with "Edge and Internal Splits." The first we have cataloged and an important Pennsylvania colonial currency artifact. This pairing might be unique.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    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.
