    Rare, Fully Issued Farmers Bank Liberty Branch $10 Note

    Liberty, MO - Farmers Bank of Missouri, at Liberty $10 Aug. 1, 1859 MO-15 G18b. PCGS Very Fine 25.
    This design type is usually seen as an India paper color proof, formerly from the American Bank Note Company archives. A rare issued Liberty branch note from Bald, Cousland & Co. Philada. & New York, with an added "ABC" monogram, using the orange tint lace-pattern in most areas other than the signature blocks and bottom vignettes, with deeper orange outlining the white TEN protector. Top corners have "10" dies at each end of the arced title. Above the title is a dynamic cotton-wagon scene, with six mules straining to pull the heavy load as the slave who is driving cracks his whip. The bottom left portrait shows Robert Aull, who boldly signs as president of the bank at the right. Countersigned by Geo. Penn as "ass't" commissioner. Plate B. No. 2979. The color is excellent, and the close margins are complete. One of the finer-looking issued notes from the series we have seen.

    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.
