    Choice and Rare Doylestown Bank $1 Issued Note

    Doylestown, PA - Doylestown Bank of Bucks County $1 June 1, 1861 PA-105 G4a Hoober 89-2. PCGS Very Fine 30.
    This is a delightful and very rare Bucks County issued note engraved and printed by the American Bank Note Company. The series is very rare, and the only issued note we know of is a $2 note sold in March 2012 by Stack's Bowers for $5,462.50. At the center is vignette Durand describes as "The Mill" in Interesting Notes About Vignettes. At the left is a group of Continental minutemen. At the right is a portrait of a woman wearing a brooch. Vermillion signature block guilloche and dies flank the vignette with outlined "1" protectors in white. We know of this type only by two proofs. One is the former unnamed "Rasmussen" collection note (March 1997 Bowers & Merena, Halpern & Warner sale) pedigree example that realized $5,728.13 at the Stack's Bowers 2014 March Baltimore, Lot 1152. The other is the Haxby Plate Note. This is a beautifully framed note and shows excellent color. A superior fully issued note from another well-collected county near Philadelphia.

    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.
