    Extremely Rare Milnor 9 Pence Scrip

    Unknown Location, (New Jersey) - Isaac L, Milnor 9 Pence December 1, 1787 Newman page 266, Wait 2498. PCGS Good 6.
    An extremely rare private scrip note, issued by a Philadelphia merchant and payable to "Bearer on Demand in New Jersey." Printed in all green without imprint. Ornate bordering is all around. There are listed 6 pence and 9 pence notes; the former is the Newman Plate Note and printed in black ink. This 9 pence is only the second example we know of. The DuPont note sold in Smythe's March 1993 sale was vastly inferior. This boasts a strong signature. Ironically, this Good 6 example might be the finest known. An important note for the New Jersey specialist.
    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.
