    Superb T. R. Livingston French Point 1862 $1.25 Scrip Payable in the Cherokee Nation

    French Point, MO - T. R. Livingston & Co. Redeemable at J. M. Bryant's Store, C.[herokee] N.[ation], or at my Headquarters $1.25 July 1, 1862. PCGS Very Fine 30.
    This T. R. Livingston July 1, 1862, $1.25 issued note is in exceptional grade. It is difficult to imagine a finer example. At first glance, it appears to be as made, which at that time was under less than ideal conditions. This is printed on sturdy brown (or buff as noted in the EPN inventory) rag paper. The style and layout are similar to the $1 note and other denominations in the series. Intricate ends, elaborate corners, and wavy-line borders contain the typeset text. Town and date are at the top, half-shaded ONE DOLLAR & 25 CENTS is underneath, and the Gothic "In Confederate Money" is bolded across. The obligation near the bottom states it was "Redeemable at J. M. Bryant's Store, C.[herokee] N.[ation], or at my Headquarters." The issuer is engraved. The T. R. Livingston & Co. countersignature is on the blank back. No. 136. Broadly margined for the type and series. The upper left edge just slightly affects the ornaments near the top. An extremely well-detailed, deeply inked impression: a "wonder" note with immense historical context.

    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.
