Very Scarce Hope and Anchor NoteSouth Carolina April 10, 1778 30 Shillings Fr. SC-152. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
This is a very scarce denomination and type from the series. The type was printed on the second, "rarer" sheet array that also included the "Sun" and "Horse" vignette types. This very pleasing example with the "Hope & Anchor" vignette was the highest denomination from the issue date. The margins are wide and the printing vibrant. The Newman example is superior in eye appeal to the Boyd collection note that realized $1,610 in October 2006. Noted only with some "Small Internal Splits." Conservatively estimated in comparison with its rarity and visual appeal.

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.
