    Bank of Louisiana $1000 Forced Issue Type

    New Orleans, LA - Bank of Louisiana $1000 Forced Issue Jan 14, 1862 LA-75 G32c. PCGS Very Fine 35 Apparent.
    This has always been a popular type since it is one of the few, fully issued $1,000 notes seen in the Obsolete note series. Beautifully styled by Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Edson. A sailor reclines against trade goods on the shore. The small base vignette shows a bank building. At the left end the words ONE THOUSAND face inward within an oblong cartouche on shaded lathe work. A blue protector "1000" is at bottom center. Stamped with FORCED ISSUE at the right in blue. The vermillion security back has the title across and large "1000" dies at each end. Noted with a "Hinge Repaired Internal Tear at Left" that is noticed more from the back. This is a crisp and sharp example with the low serial number 59.

    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.
