Rare and Popularly Collected T47 $20 "Fantasy" Note

    Confederate States of America - T47 1862 $20 "Fantasy or Essay" Issue PF-1, Tremmel XX-2/A. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
    The T47 and T48 notes have been collected within the seventy-two types for generations. Once universally classified as "Essay" notes in the absence of concrete evidence of their origin, purpose or manufacture. However, despite being renamed "Fantasy" notes most recently, they maintain their status as collectible in a Confederate set and are essential for completion. They are also important components of a well-rounded Confederate Contemporary Counterfeit collection. Printed on an onion-skin type of paper, different than any other Confederate note. The lower left imprint is Keatings [sic] & Ball, Columbus [sic], S.C. The design mimics the T46 $10 note style. The top center vignette has seated Commerce with shield (normal shading). R.M.T. Hunter is at the lower right. Three different style counters are in the other corners. The engraved date is September 2, 1862, incorrect for the enactment, as seen on the T46. However, the T46 has no imprint. Red penned serial number 4289. Grading has noted a "Small Edge Nick at Bottom Right" which is just that, small. A bright note with considerable paper body and a perfect fit into any Confederate set.

    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.
