    Stylish Lee Bank Full Color Proof

    Lee, MA - Lee Bank $1 April 1, 18__ MA-725 G6a. Proof. PCGS Extremely Fine 45 Apparent.
    This Lee Bank India paper proof is vividly printed with full deep red color tint and exquisite style by Danforth, Wright & Co. The color tinting scheme consists of various shades of light to deep red, with a lighter pattern across the note and deeper red, large "1" devices flanking the central vignette. Beneath the arced title is a portrait of a woman holding a dove; the circular frame is composed of micro-lettering. At lower left is a three-quarter portrait of Washington. At lower right is the standing Native American as used on the state seal. A rare proof, and it complements the $2 proof from the series we sold in Newman Part VI in April 2015 for $2,585 (PCGS Choice About New 55 Apparent). Noted as "Hole Punch Cancelled" as made and with "Paper Adhered to Back," which refers to a strip of brown paper not affecting the face. A very boldly tinted and inspiringly engraved Massachusetts full color proof.
    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.
