    Extremely Rare John Cameron Military Endorsed T39 $100 "Train"

    Confederate States of America - T39 $100 1862 PF-13, Cr. 294. John Cameron Military Endorsed. PCGS Very Fine 35 Apparent.
    The 1862 7.30% notes, the "Trains" have become a specialty of an avid group of collectors and the publication of Confederate Issuers of Train and Hoer Notes by Michael McNeil (2010, CC & A) only increased the interest. This T39 $100 has back stamped Savannah interest stamps, "Issued Sept. 23, 1862" black stamp, and a military hand endorsement: "Issued 7th day / of August / Jno. D. Cameron / Capt. and ast. / Q master." The hand endorsement is rare and historical. According to additional research contributed by scholar, dealer and collector W. Crutchfield Williams II, Captain Cameron served in Company F&S of the 29th Regiment of Georgia, eventually consolidated into the 30th Georgia Regiment in 1863. They would participate in the campaigns from Chickamauga to Atlanta along with the Army of Tennessee. Cameron entered service as an Assistant Quartermaster, and would muster out as the Regiment Quartermaster. Serial number 26838. Listed as Rarity-14 as a military back endorsement. A very attractive example with a bold endorsement. Only a "Small Internal Tear at Left" is noted by grading. A fascinating Confederate 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.
