    Colorful and Rare Philadelphia Banknote

    Philadelphia, PA - Bank of Penn Township $1 June 1, 1861 PA-475 G50a, Hoober 305-112. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
    This colorful layout, and one of the most beautiful Philadelphia notes, is from the National Bank Note Company. Swaths of green surround the vignette of The Young Students. Washington's tomb at Mount Vernon is at top left, an oval portrait of Washington is at lower right, and "1" dies are in the remaining corners. The note is slightly faded, but the signatures are strong. "Small Edge Splits" are mentioned by grading. This is the first we have handled of this rare type.
    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.
