    Choice Linn County Bank $2 Lithographed Remainder

    Marion, IA- Linn County Bank-Winslow, Stephens & Co. $2 April 5, 1861 Oakes 96-2. Remainder. PCGS Choice About New 58.
    This is another rarely seen private banker issue from Iowa, and it is very stylishly lithographed with color tint by Ed Mendel, 162 Lake St., Chicago. Vignettes are adapted from those originally period-engraved by Danforth, Bald & Co. At center, a seated farmer; left end, two Indians, one standing and the other crouching; lower right, a clipper ship. Deep orange tint with deeper protector TWO. This bold example shows a wide top margin, possibly indicating the top of sheet position at one time. Iowa private name banks such as this were excluded from the Haxby listings. However, not only do they have bank titles, they clearly acted as bank depositories and paid the notes in currency. They are worthy of collecting and inclusion in future Obsolete banknote references.

    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.
