    Unlisted Burlington, Iowa Scrip Note

    Burlington, IA - Henry H. Scott 10 Cents Oct. 18th, 1862 Oakes-UNL. PCGS Very Fine 20 Apparent.
    An unlisted issuer scrip from Iowa and the first we have seen. Small format and printed on white bond paper. Standing Native American princess and crouching Ceres, adapted from Danforth, Bald & Co. notes, are at the left. At top center, under the arced title is an eagle. At the base, slightly right of center is a large dog's head. The "10" counter at top right is within an agricultural wreath. The obligation and payable text is in very small type left of the dog vignette. Noted with "Small Edge Splits." A great rarity. There was tremendous interest in Iowa Obsolete notes in the Newman Part VI sale. Several of the Newman Collection Iowa notes are considered unique, as this likely is.
    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.
