    Ashland, IA - Farmers and Merchants Bank $3 Oct. 20, 1857 IA-UNL, Oakes 4-3. PCGS Very Good 10 Apparent.
    Oddly, Haxby did not list this series as a bank in his reference though these are clearly "Demand" notes; a proof sheet from the series was in the 1990 American Banknote Company Archives sale, printed in the size and layout of banknote sheet. Cattle are being driven at top center. The large THREE protector and "3" counter are in red on this Danforth, Wright & Co. note. Grading notes "Hinge Remnants on Back." Properly issued and well circulated.
    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.
