    Rare $100 St. Louis Red Seal

    Saint Louis, MO - $100 1902 Red Seal Fr. 686 The Fourth NB Ch. # (M)283 PCGS Very Fine 30.
    $100 Red Seals remain among the very most elusive of all National Bank note types and denominations, with the current National Bank Note Census showing a total of only 121 examples from all banks in the nation combined. Only three banks in Missouri are represented in the census: the Third NB of St. Louis, with six notes reported; the Fourth NB of St. Louis, with seven examples enumerated; and the Central NB of St. Louis, which has only a single example in the count. The Newman Collection piece is new to the census, and is as nice as any note from this bank offered at public sale during the past twenty-five years. The only two Red Seal $100s from this institution to reach the market since 1990 were a Very Good specimen in a 1997 sale and a non-certified example grading Very Fine in a 2010 sale, with the latter piece fetching $9,775. Expect a similar result here, with a five-figure price for this note highly likely.

    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.
