    Rare County of St. Louis 1826 Order Exchange

    St. Louis, MO - Treasurer of the County of St. Louis $00.50 Order Exchange August 9, 1826. PCGS Very Fine 35.
    This is a rare and very early Statehood-period St. Louis order exchange or warrant that was payable "out of any Monies in the Treasury, appropriated for ..." In this case, it was for "County purposes." A partially printed form on thin, translucent paper. The imprint is at left: "Printed at the Office of the Missouri Advocate." MISSOURI is in a cartouche in the right end. Issued to Richard Lowe, signed by the president and clerk, and countersigned on the plain back by the payee. The first example of this type we cataloged realized $1,292.50 in Newman Internet 3. There are three additional denominations, all different, remaining in this catalog to be sold. Though the selvage is trimmed to the borders, the paper quality is excellent. A beautiful example and very early municipal rarity.

    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.
