    Description

    J.S.G. Boggs Collection 1995 - 2000.
    This lot contains works by the controversial paper money artist J.S.G. Boggs. There is a 1995 ANA $2; a 1996 FUN/Krause $5; a 1997 FUN/Krause $10; a 1998 FUN $20; a 1999 FUN $50; and a 2000 FUN $100. Boggs has had many of his works confiscated by the Secret Service. He denies being a counterfeiter maintaining that a good-faith transaction between informed parties is not fraud, even if the item transacted happens to resemble negotiable currency. He also has a devoted following, though he has dropped from the numismatic news lately. The $5 and $10 have different vignettes of the Supreme Court building with "Freedom of Art" above the columns. The $100 has a vignette of the Supreme Court building too, but this time "Freedom of Art" above the columns is engraved backwards. We also see a "motto" on the $100 of "Give Me A Fair Trial." These notes are uniface with the verso sporting identifying notations. Choice About Uncirculated or better.
