    Very Rare Issued Hagerstown Bank $1 Note

    Hagerstown, MD - Hagerstown Bank $1 April 3, 1862 MD-240 G26b, Shank 60.7.11. PCGS Very Fine 20.
    This is a very rare denomination and type from a bank mostly known for its plentiful remainders. The American Bank Note Company style is beautiful. At top center between two "1" counters is the sturdy looking bank building, seen on this series only, with customers coming and going. Between the "1" counters with agricultural images around the frames is a seal (titled, so perhaps the city seal at the time) At the right end, four charming cherubs hoist a large "1" on top of a pedestal with ONE on the front and side. An eagle on a rock is at the base. The condition is marvelous, the note bright and vibrant. A penned endorsement on the back indicates a local redemption.

    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.
