    Extremely Rare City of Mexico 1874 City Warrant

    Mexico, MO - City of Mexico City Warrant $1 June 31, 1874. PCGS Very Good 10.
    An extremely rare series of post-War period notes, and the first we have cataloged. It is a beautifully designed type engraved by the American Bank Note Company, New-York and printed on two sides. Under the arced title at top center, a train travels east. Upper corners show a script ONE counter at left and a green "1" die at right; the frame and protector guilloche are also in green. Allegorical History stands at the left while a child with a laurel wreath sits at her feet; the harvester at right gathers corn. The engraved date is "1871," but this note is redated with a "4" over the ending "1." The green security back has three denomination dies. No plate letter. Serial no. 3671. A great rarity with only normal circulation. It still maintains excellent color and is very appealing.

    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.
