    Unlisted New Haven Bank Issued $1 with "First Sabbath" Vignette

    New Haven, CT - New Haven Bank $1 Nov. 1, 1853 CT-290 UNL. PCGS Choice About New 55.
    The New Haven Bank was founded in 1792, making it one of the earliest. Like the Hartford Bank, it issued notes from several series and imprints over the course of seven decades. This fully issued 1850s note was engraved by Toppan, Carpenter & Co. and is unlisted using a full red ONE protector as seen here. Top, left of center, is seated Commerce. Lower left, in the small circle, is a custom vignette used only on this bank, titled First Sabbath Quinnipiack 1638. Lower right, sailor at the wheel. Rare and superb condition for an issued note such as this. This well-framed example has a choice appearance on the face. Light handling is seen from the back only.

    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.
