    Rare Great Salt Lake City Corporation $2 Note

    G. S. L. City, U.T. - Great Salt Lake City Corporation $2 June 30, 1869 Rust 114, Nyholm 123. PCGS Fine 15 Apparent.
    This $2 type is from the dollar denominated series of notes that were payable in U.S. Legal Tenders or U.S. Currency depending on the back obligation. The earlier Rust book was sometimes unclear in its illustrations, and those earlier attributions can be confusing compared with the clarified and expanded Douglas Nyholm listings. A very handsome type lithographed on two sides by Ferd. Mayer & Co., Engr. New York. A young woman holding a dove is at bottom center with the vignette adapted from Danforth, Wright & Co. engraved notes. Left and right are green color protectors. The title is curved across the top with geometric patterns at each end. The back is green with ornate scrollwork, "2" protector counter in the center and text PAYABLE IN U.S. CURRENCY at the bottom. A fully signed and issued note. The denomination was not in the Ford collection. Noted with "Small Edge and Internal Splits and Tears." The color is vibrant and this is an attractive, rare note.

    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.
