    Very Rare and Beautiful Mauch Chunk Bank $2 Note

    Mauch Chunk, PA - Mauch Chunk Bank $2 July 4, 1861 PA-275 G4a Hoober 225-4. PCGS Very Fine 20.
    Another rarity, this note has an interesting, well balanced layout by the American Bank Note Company. At the left two-thirds of the note are a trio of "2" numerals, two green, under the arced title. The lower left corner shows the scarce vignette, The Well, engraved by DeWitt C. Hay, showing a mother giving her son water from a jug. Across the bottom center is green micro-numeral pattern lathe work. Upper right is allegorical Intelligence between the title end and the upper right counter. At the bottom right is a custom male portrait engraved for the bank, and his hair shows much vertical lift. Very attractive and very rare. We have seen only two others, one the lesser grade Haxby Plate Note, in 30 years and this is the highest graded note we have encountered.

    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.
