    Bold Hannibal NB Red Seal

    Hannibal, MO - $20 1902 Red Seal Fr. 639 The Hannibal NB Ch. # (M)6635 PCGS Extremely Fine 40PPQ.
    A lovely $20 Red Seal which delivers everything a collector could desire. It is one of only four Red Seals known from this Hannibal bank, and by far the finest of that quartet, with the appearance of a note issued by the bank this very morning. That appearance is enhanced by a fire engine red overprint, bold two-color signatures, and paper originality meriting its PPQ designation. Of the other three Hannibal Red Seals, one is a $10 note which has been off the market for so long that it lacks any auction or offering record, a second is a $10 which last appeared in a 1978 Hickman-Oakes sale, and the last, a $20 example, made its only auction appearance in the 1946 Barney Bluestone sale of Albert A. Grinnell's massive collection.

    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    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.
