    Fr. 825 $20 1918 Federal Reserve Bank Note PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
    The $20 FRBN is a difficult type note to acquire, and only five of 12 districts issued them. This very rare Friedberg number has only 26 St. Louis $20 Federal Reserve Bank Notes enumerated, with the highest-grade specimen reported to date grading About Uncirculated. A titled bust of Grover Cleveland is at left on the face. Marcus W. Baldwin's transportation vignette known as "Air, Sea, and Land" is on the back. A train, car, and biplane are at left. At right, the Statue of Liberty is shown with an ocean liner and tugboat. This is a new addition to the census from the Newman Collection. PCGS notes some "Minor Stains on Back in Margins." Deep color, balanced margins, and bright paper are the highlights of this lightly circulated example.

    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.
