    Bold and Likely Unique May 1, 1761 10 Shillings

    Province of New Hampshire May 1, 1761 10 Shillings Fr. NH-114. PCGS Extremely Fine 40 Apparent.
    This is an extraordinary New Hampshire Colonial note and the only example from the series we have seen or are aware of. Like the January 1, 1761 six pence offered here, this is the Newman 5th edition plate note. A larger bill than the six pence, with intricate ornamental patterns on the perimeter, a small crown at the top center, and the texts enclosed within. The small cartouche at the left center encloses the motto PAX BELLO POTIOR. The notes were payable by December 25, 1765 in 2.5% interest bearing Bills of Exchange. From the face, this has the appearance of a nearly "as made" note. Beautifully printed and mostly well margined. The note split horizontally and an antique paper strip on the back secures the halves together. The paper maintains embossed originality and is bright. Noted with "Center Split Repaired with Backing; Small Edge Tears" for accuracy. After many decades in the renowned Newman Colonial currency collection, this note is being offered at auction for the first time. This is a marvelous opportunity to bid on another likely unique note.

    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.
