    New Orleans, LA - Bank of Louisiana $100 Registered Issue March 4, 1850 LA-75 G24c. PCGS Very Fine 25.
    This is a beautiful $100 printed from the Fairman, Draper, Underwood & Co. face plate, reflecting the earlier style used as early as the 1820s. On the green back, the denomination "C" is in a large die at the center with the Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Edson imprint. The blue "Registered" stamping is at the right. A standing allegorical female presents a document to seated Liberty at top center. Flanking are widely spaced dies. A perpendicular ONE HUNDRED is at each end, in slanted type at the right side. A blue protector "100" in large numerals is across. On the green back, the denomination "C" is in a large die at the center. This striking green back is much scarcer than the backs with other colors used for this bank. A very attractive example.
    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.
