    Very Rare December 20, 1783 Series "Taxes" Note

    State of New Jersey December 20, 1783 2 Shillings 6 Pence Fr. NJ-202. PCGS Fine 15 Apparent.
    This is a rarely encountered series from the State of New Jersey during the early Confederation period. The series' notes were withdrawn from circulation within a year. They have a complex obligation and were usable "in the Payment of Taxes." Prior to the current offering, notes from this date have been seen mainly in advanced New Jersey Colonial note collections, such as Spiro, DuPont, and Boyd. Boyd's incredible six different denominations were sold in the Ford XV sale by Stack's in October 2006. This note is more attractive than the Boyd note (Lot 8297) from the face, and is pinned to a backing as noted. The Boyd note realized $1,840 at the 2006 Ford sale. That same example, also graded Fine 15 Apparent by PCGS, recently realized $3,290 in our April 2015 CSNS Signature Sale (Lot 18225). Noted with "Splits; Pinned to Backing." Another opportunity to obtain at auction this rarity with an excellent pedigree.

    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.
