    Very Rare 1787 Special Indent-The Anderson Plate Note

    (South Carolina) Act for Raising Supplies for the Year 1787 Special Indent of 5 Shillings Fr. SC-174 Anderson-Smythe 21. PCGS Very Fine 35.
    This large format note issue is listed in Newman and the Anderson-Smythe catalog where this example is the plate note. A two-signature remainder, it was printed on laid paper and signed by Ballantine and Kennedy. This is two serial numbers from the Boyd note, No. 134, which is the Newman 5th Edition plate note (replacing the present example). The indentation stub at the left shows elaborate pattern border ornaments. At the lower right is a small vignette of a dove holding a sprig in its beak; attached is a banner showing the with motto PAX. The obligation is across the top half of the note. This has a Rarity-8 rating in Anderson-Smythe (1-3), but is more likely a very High Rarity-7. The Boyd collection note sold for $4,600 at the Ford Part X auction. The borders are slightly close in a few areas, but overall this rare piece is very attractive.

    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.
