DescriptionFr. 1206 $100 1882 Gold Certificate PCGS Very Fine 30PPQ.
A much scarcer Gold Certificate with only 48 examples reported in Track & Price, with 75% of that number grading VF20 and less. PCGS has graded only nine examples with the highest grade of About New 53. This VF 30PPQ is one of the nicer known pieces. It is strictly original and problem free with ideal ink colors, broad margins and a great eye appeal. The note bears the vignette of Thomas Hart Benton, who in his 34-year career in Washington served in both the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. He was one of three men named Thomas Hart Benton, all of whom were distantly related: Of the other two, one was a relatively unknown Union Civil War General, and the other a celebrated artist.

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.
