A uniface note with intricate ornamental flourishes at the left and Virginia Arms at the top. The issuing series date was written in. Signed by Peyton Randolph and John Blair, countersigned on the blank back by Robert Carter Nicholas. Noted with "Small Edge Split at Left; Pinholes." This is a nicely balanced example, quite vibrant, boasting lovely natural paper quality. A perfect representative from this scarce and interesting issue.

    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.
