    Rare T48 "Fantasy or Essay" $10 Note

    Confederate States of America - T48 $10 1862 "Fantasy or Essay" Issue Tremmel XX-3, PF-1. PCGS Very Good 10 Apparent.
    The T48 $10 "Fantasy or Essay" note is rarer than the related T47 $20. Printed on thin onion-skin paper with the Keatings [sic] & Ball, Columbus [sic], S.C. imprint. The naturally wide margins make this appear to be printed from a single impression plate. This is much like the T46 design, with Agriculture seated at the top center. The rest of the layout is like the T47, with Hunter at the lower right and dies in the other corners. Signatures are engraved. This is rare and very collectible despite some condition detriments. Noted with "Holes; Tape Repairs; Edge Splits and Tears." These are always in demand for completion of traditional, standard type sets.
    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.
