    Handsome Paris NB $10 Value Back

    Paris, MO - $10 1882 Value Back Fr. 577 The Paris NB Ch. # (M)5794 PCGS Very Fine 35.
    The Paris NB issued large and small size notes, but this is a desirable type from the charter. A very nice Value Back for the collector of high-end circulated notes. On the face, the image of Franklin and Electricity, engraved by Alfred Jones, is at left, and America Seizing the Lightning, engraved by Charles Burt, is at the right. In ovals on the green back, 1864 Treasury Secretary William P. Fessenden is at left, and allegorical Mechanics at right. TEN DOLLARS is across the center of the cartouche. This example exhibits bright paper, ample margins, bold stamped signatures, and pleasing overall eye appeal. The only other $10 Value Back from his bank we have sold was in our 2005 FUN Sale. That raw "Very Fine" note realized $1,725.

    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.
