    Watertown, WI - Jefferson County Bank $3 July 1, 1853 WI-820 G4. Proof. PCGS New 62 Apparent.
    The bank and series are extremely rare, with the Krause collection having only a damaged raised note to represent the title. This well-engraved plate was accomplished by Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Edson, New-York. The India paper proof is mounted on its original cardstock. This very stylish RWHE proof features an extremely rare vignette at the upper right, The Treaty at Fort Stanwix, that was engraved for the Syracuse City Bank $2 notes. The highly detailed scene shows the Iroquois council meeting with American officials. At the far left is Indian chief presenting a gift, while the lower right shows an Indian mother with her baby nestled in a papoose. Hole Punch Cancelled and Apparent with "Edge Tears" noted. A significant historical vignette note type, and exceedingly rare. Well margined and boldly printed.

    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.
