    Rare "Little Rock" $5 Issued Demand Note

    (Little Rock), AR - Branch of the Bank of the State of Arkansas $5 Jan. 17, 1839 AR-10 G100 Rothert 18-1. PCGS Very Fine 25 Apparent.
    A very interesting $5 demand note type listed under Little Rock in Haxby, but not so in Rothert (under written branches). The engraved "at" was officially crossed out for this type, and the note apparently acted as a Little Rock home issue. Engraved finely by Draper, Toppan, Longacre & Co. At top center, seated Industry appears with a youthful helper; busy bees at their hive add to the charming scene. At the left end is a light-coated horse (a rarer vignette); at the right end, in a circle, is a steamboat. This bold and bright note boasts sturdy paper. The Apparent designation is due to a few tiny rust spots on the blank back that do not affect the tremendous face eye appeal of this issued 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.
