    Attractive Parish of Natchitoches $10 Brown Paper Series

    Natchitoches, LA - Parish of Natchitoches $10 January 6, 1863. PCGS Very Fine 25.
    The Parish of Natchitoches notes are rare, and this is a particularly choice example from the superb Louisiana notes contained within the Newman Obsolete note collection. Over the years we have seen a few, and a similar example was cited as "Extremely Rare" when offered in 1991 Smythe Sale #100. Brown paper is used, similar to the Parish of Union and Parish of St. Helena notes offered here, and without imprint. The simple design has titles and obligations across with ornamental cartouches at each end; at left is the tax payment obligation and at right, TEN. This is a high grade, low serial numbered note (No. 31) for the type. The top census note of this type ("Uncirculated") was likely the Clarence Rareshide example sold at Memphis in 2005 and subsequently by us in January 2008 for $1,495.

    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.
