    Bright and Boldly Printed Large Brown Seal 1882 Twenty Dollar Gold

    Fr. 1177 $20 1882 Gold Certificate PCGS Very Fine 35.
    Track & Price lists only 33 examples of this rare, large brown spiked seal 1882 Rosecrans/Huston signed $20 Gold Certificate. PCGS has graded 12 of those 33 notes, with the finest they have seen an About New 53. This note while technically Very Fine, has the eye appeal of a choice About New example. The margins are huge and the colors absolutely outstanding on both face and back. The back is particularly significant as the gold (really orange) color tended to fade quite rapidly on this type. In April 2014, we sold a PMG VF35 for $19,975. This note, like all the Newman notes, is previously unreported and will now raise the Track & Price census to 34.

    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.
