    Exceedingly Rare Hawaiian Islands $50 Silver Certificate Remainder

    Hawaiian Islands $50 No Date (1879) Silver Certificate of Deposit SCWPM 3b Remainder. PCGS Choice About New 58.
    The most visually exciting design from this series and extremely rare in this form. Only two proofs are known to us and one is on the ABN archive book sheet. The serial number is 11499 of the 11,500 authorized and cited on the order inventory. At the center is the rare vignette The Tropics (engraved by W.W. Rice after Henry W. Herirck's design). Liberty is shown in a tropical setting, gazing at the bird that is perched on her hand. At the left is a ram. At the right is a woman wearing a cameo brooch, Fannie (by James Bannister). The ends have the Hawaiian textual denomination. Green tint and counters flank the center vignette. The back is a deeper green and uses the common series design of Royal Hawaiian Arms at the center, with ornate lathe work and denomination counters flanking. Hole Punch Cancelled as prepared at the ABN for archiving as a Specimen note. A very pleasing and exceedingly rare type. Only minor handling is seen, and the appearance is that of a Gem.

    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.
