    Bank of St. Louis (2nd) Kirksville Branch 1860 $5 with Full ABN Imprint

    Kirksville, MO - Bank of St. Louis (2nd), at their Bank in Kirksville $5 May 12, 1860 MO-50 G40c SENC. PCGS Very Fine 20 Apparent.
    This is a slightly later, fully issued Kirksville $5 note with an imprint variation. This has the gorgeous layout and color, originally engraved by Toppan, Carpenter & Co., Philadelphia & New-York, but with a slightly later imprint. Although the American Bank Note Company imprint is along the bottom, the ABC monogram is still at the upper right. The lovely vermillion color tint is seen on the arcing BANK OF ST. LOUIS at left, directly above the facing woman's portrait that is unique to this type. An intricate FIVE protector is at the bottom, and a color die with white outlined "5" is at the upper right. In the gristmill vignette at the top, a man carries a heavy sack of grain. The horse he holds by the reins has her offspring safely tucked underneath. In the background at left, children rest on a bridge and watch as the waterwheel turns. Plate A. No. 17320. Signed by cashier D. C. D. Van Arnam and John J. Anderson, later a major in the Confederate army. The noted "Small Edge Tears" and "Pinholes" detract little from this note's beauty. The color is sharp, and this is a tremendous opportunity to obtain a rare and beautiful type.

    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.
