    Perhaps Unique Batesville $100 Post Note

    Batesville, AR - Bank of the State of Arkansas $100 Post Note Jan. 20, 1838 AR-10 G140, Rothert 31-5. PCGS Fine 12 Apparent.
    This Batesville $100 is not only the Rothert plate note, it is also the Haxby plate note, and is perhaps unique for branch and even as a type. It was intended as a demand note type only to begin with, but the post note text is penned in underneath as "after 12 months." A well-engraved Rawdon, Wright, & Hatch note, with a cherub at top center flanked by "C" dies. At the far left are farm implements with "100" blocks above and below. At the upper right, wringing out her long tresses, is Venus Rising from the Sea as engraved and signed by Freeman Rawdon (adapted from the 1772 painting by James Barry). Noted with two right "Missing Right Corners" by PCGS. This is academic, as we have never seen another example of this note.

    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.
