    Helena, AR - County of Phillips $1 187_ Rothert 277-1. PCGS Very Good 10 Apparent.
    Fully issued, and a rare Reconstruction era scrip note with a Federal style note back. The note has conflicting obligations between the face and back. From the face plate, the note was payable "One year after date" at "3 percent per annum from maturity." However, the back medallion obligation has the text "Redeemable in U. S. Currency without interest." Known examples were also payable "Two years after..." Boldly designed and printed by the National Bank Note Company with green face bordering and guilloche. The center shows a rare vignette of workers moving a heavy boulder. The brown security back is similar to period Federal notes. In typical condition for the series with noted "Repairs; Pieces replaced; Design Redrawn." This is an intriguing series that deserves additional face plate variety study.
    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.
