    Rare and Distinctive Map of Iowa Vignette

    Dubuque, IA - State Bank of Iowa $10 Aug. 8, 1857 IA-1 G98, Oakes 60-5. PCGS Fine 15 Apparent.
    This is an important, genuine $10 Dubuque branch note printed by the American Bank Note Company. A uniquely styled Iowa map vignette, showing the counties in deep detail, is at the top center with a seated allegorical female to its right. A train is at lower left and a male portrait at the lower right. The ornate orange back has STATE BANK OF IOWA outlined in white. Noted with "Tape Repaired Internal Tear; Stains; Missing UL Corner Tip." The great Tom Flynn collection we sold at the 2008 Long Beach sale had an example of this branch $10 type that was a beautiful "Fine to Very Fine" note that realized $4,888 to a telephone bidder. Though this note is a little rough compared to the Flynn note, it is a rarely seen type and branch, making it very collectible.

    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.
