    Description

    New Orleans, LA - F. Egglestone $2 Mar. 1, 1862. PCGS Fine 15 Apparent.
    This is a rare New Orleans issuer, and we have not cataloged a note from him. Printed on white paper. A very interesting layout, with the letters of the title in three-quarter view over a fencepost design. A steamship travels west at the top, crouching Ceres with a Native American princess is at the left end, and a green TWO protector is across. "Stains" and "Small Edge Splits" are noted by grading. Another discovery within the Newman Collection Louisiana books.
    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.
