    Engraved 1862 Date Parish of Caldwell $5 Note

    Columbia, LA - Parish of Caldwell, La. $5 November 12, 1862. PCGS Very Fine 30.
    This is a superb Parish of Caldwell engraved 1862 note. Though most notes in the cache discovered 25 years ago were from this series, many had wormholes or edge flaws. This note is in exceptional grade for the series and type. Printed on blue paper and without imprint. A train vignette is at the top above the title. Ornamental cartouches with textual denominations are at both ends, each facing inward. An ornamental border is above and below. Another perfect type note. The strong grade and esteemed pedigree form a great combination.
    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.
