    Helena, AR - Levee Treasurer of Phillips County $1000 8% Levee Scrip July 20, 1861 Rothert 278-3. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
    Another very rare Arkansas scrip note issue and the only $1,000 note from the state. Printed on a rather brittle white paper. The light red undertint protector "1000" dominates the center under the complex obligation. The left end panel shows an interesting Native American princess in the center that mimics the U.S. $3 gold piece and Type III gold dollars. Due to the brittle paper, there are noted "Tape Repaired Edge Splits and Tears," with some minor foxing seen on the face. The first we have handled, with the Rothert plate note sold from the Western Reserve Collection (part of lot 163 in the November, 1996 Spink America [Christie's] sale).
    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.
