    Wide Margined $60 Coram "Lyre, Horns, and Flags" Back

    South Carolina February 8, 1779 $60 Fr. SC-155. PCGS Extremely Fine 40 Apparent.
    A very sharp-looking $60 Thomas Coram engraved note printed on cream paper. The note is widely margined on all sides, framing the face beautifully. At the bottom left Seated Plenty holds a large cornucopia with the motto MUTUA DEFENSIO TUTISSIMA (Mutual defense is safest) on an arcing banner. The back vignette shows a lyre, crossed horns, and crossed flags of South Carolina (note the crescent). The eye appeal is striking and it is very sharply printed on both sides. Noted with "Small Edge Splits and Tears; Paper Pull on Back at Right Edge." The small splits are mostly confined to the wide edge. The face of the note projects as a much higher-grade 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.
