    Possibly Unique Emrich & Pope 50 Cents

    Fort Smith, AR - Emrich & Pope 50 Cents Sep. 25, 1862 Rothert 229-2. PCGS Very Fine 25 Apparent.
    This is one of the rarest notes from Fort Smith, and the two denominations listed in Rothert are apparently the Newman notes, but are not plated in the book. The 25 cents from the series realized a resounding $1,175 in Newman Internet 1 on May 4, 2016. This bright note has an ornamental type border all around. The text is simple and bold. Noted is a "Small Edge Split at Bottom Right." Not quite in the magnificent condition of the 25 cents we sold, but bright and well margined.
    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.
