    Salt Lake City Presiding Bishop's General Store House 5 Cents

    Salt Lake City, UT - Presiding Bishop's General Store House 5 Cents Coupon in Produce and Provisions Undated (Ca. 1890s) Rust 248, Nyholm 295var. PCGS Very Fine 20 Apparent.
    The Presiding Bishop's office scrip is rarely offered. It used five color-coded denominations, which would have eased sorting of the notes. Printed in black on light brown paper. A simple, single-line border is around the perimeter, with decorative elements at three corners and below the "5" counter at upper right. A beehive is featured under the arced denomination bisecting "This Coupon." The obligation is at the bottom with engraved signature of W.B. Preston. Noted with "Edge and Internal Splits and Tears; Minor Edge Damage at Left." Notes from this series are much rarer than the other two Salt Lake City Bishop's Store House types.
    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.
