    Description

    New Iberia, LA - Confederate Hotel 25 Cents Sept. 26, 1862. PCGS Fine 12 Apparent.
    This is another rarity and an interesting occupational title. It is similar to the example we cataloged from the Newman Collection in Part VII, but printed on thin brown rag paper with the imprint of L.T. Burnett, Printer. The title is at the top and obligations across the center, with the engraved city and date. The left end floral pattern encloses the cartouche showing "25 CENTS." At the right end, the floral pattern edge matches the left. A red protector "25 Cts." is at center. Burnett did much printing in the area at this time, and the similarity of his style and vignettes can be seen on a few different issues cataloged in that Newman Collection Part VII sale. There are some noted "Edge Splits," but the protector color is bold and the signature strong.
    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.
