    Extremely Rare Bold Undated $20 Silver Certificate Remainder

    Hawaiian Islands $20 No Date (1879) Silver Certificate of Deposit SCWPM 2b. Remainder. PCGS Choice New 63.
    The second denomination from this fascinating set and a great rarity in this archival remainder form. The 1990 ABN world sale had two proof pairs, one on an archive sheet. This is serial 7999 of the 8,000 notes authorized. The size is slightly larger than the $10 and each subsequent note increases in size. At top center, under the title, is an Indian princess inset in an oval, holding a bow and shown with a quiver of arrows on her back (adapted from the Draper, Toppan 1840s). To her left is a steamer heading west and to her right, a train heading east, forming a cartouche around the center. At the left is a little girl cuddling puppies; and at the right is the anchor of Hope, resting against a rock. Both ends have the Hawaiian textual denominations. Light brown tint is on the face. The back is a deeper brown and uses the common series design of Royal Hawaiian Arms at the center flanked by ornate lathe work and denomination counters. Hole Punch Cancelled as prepared at the ABN for archiving as a Specimen note. This is a bold example and has vibrant colors. A great rarity in both the world and American series.

    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.
