    Description

    Yellville, AR - Unknown Issuer "Received on Deposit" $1 1862 Rothert UNL. PCGS Very Fine 30.
    A fascinating note from the interestingly named Ozark location. An unlisted issuer in Rothert, and a mystery since the light penciling of "John Doe" in the signature block was done later. Printed on brown rag paper. At the left end is a tall vignette of a well-dressed man who is perhaps raising his glass in a toast. The vignette might be a hint that he is an inn or restaurant proprietor. There is a "Payable in Confederate Notes" clause in the center, and the note acted as a deposit certificate. This enigmatic note might be unique.
    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.
