    Exceptional Franklin, Louisiana Printer's Scrip

    Franklin, LA - Jona. C. White & Son, The Register Office 10 Cents August 26, 1862. PCGS Extremely Fine 40.
    There are several issuers from Franklin, Louisiana, but this is certainly a great rarity with only a 5 cents from the series known to us. Printed on brown paper and in a small format. Above the title and between "10 CENTS" is a diminutive, charming vignette of a printing press. "The Register Office" is across with obligation underneath. The denomination in Gothic type is in the left cartouche, and the proprietors' names are at the right end. Signed by Jona. C. White and Son as "Editors & Proprietors." This is an exceptional note in a condition that augments the complete package. Only showing minor circulation and very boldly printed. Another great rarity from the Newman Collection Louisiana Civil War currency.
    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.
