    Avidly Collected Delaware County Location Proof

    Chester, PA - Bank of Delaware County $20 18__ PA-65 G64 Hoober 61-19. Proof PCGS Choice About New 55.
    Delaware County, Pennsylvania has always been an avidly collected location. This rare proof was engraved and printed by Underwood, Bald, Spencer & Hufty on India paper, mounted on original cardstock. The farm scene at the upper right shows a farmer leaning against a tree as his wife sits, holding what appears to be a baby; they watch as the field hands cut grain. To the left are the titles and a cameo head. Identical ends show a cameo head in the center and counters in the corners. Hole Punch Cancelled as normal for most proofs. This type was not in the 1990 ABN Archives sale and we only know of the Haxby plate note. This well margined example shows no detractions other than minor handling.

    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.
