    Rare 1782 "Confiscated Estates" Sheet

    State of Georgia January 1782 Resolve "Sales of Confiscated Estates" Uncut Sheet of Two Fr. GA-125, Anderson-Smythe GA-1. Remainder. PCGS Choice New 63 Apparent.
    This is a rare Georgia fiscal form that was payable in "Current Money of this State." Printed on laid paper. The sheet of two is as made, wide margined all around, and each form with the full indented portion at the left. Listed in all three references: Newman (page 152); Friedberg's Paper Money of the United States 20th edition; and the Anderson-Smythe listings in The Price of Liberty, where this is rated a Low Rarity-7 (7-12 known). We have seen very few examples either as remainders or cancelled, issued notes. The issued example from the Newman Collection sold for $1,880 in Newman Part VII. The only other sheet of two remainders we have encountered was in Ford Part VI, October 2006, lot 301, and that realized $3,450. Noted as "Falsely Signed," with the Hall and Walton signatures added much later. A very impressive sheet.
    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.
