DescriptionCSA - Lot of 3 Lower-Denomination Chemicograph Backs Proposed for 1864 Notes.
These are private souvenir, or commemorative, notes printed uniface on bond paper using plates that surfaced well after they were created by S. Straker & Sons, London in 1864. Who and when some of these later souvenir notes were printed from the discovered plates is not certain. They are often seen in sets of six chemicograph backs with designs that were intended for the 1864 issues of the $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, and $500 denominations. Back plates with these designs were ordered by the Confederate Treasury from Straker. Although the plates were made and shipped from London in early January 1864, they never arrived at their destination. Like later shipments of plates, they did not get through the Union blockades. This trio comprises the three lowest denomination backs: $5, $10, and $20. The first two are Choice New. The last, with some handling, is AU.

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.
