    Extremely Rare Nantucket Perkins Plate Note

    Nantucket, MA - Manufacturers & Mechanics Bank $10 June 10, 1826 MA-845 G26 SENC. PCGS Fine 12.
    An extremely rare Perkins plate note from the title. The later notes from the bank featured an immense sperm whale vignette spanning the top. This early Perkins type shows a divided end panel at left. Instead of using overlapping circles as the background for MASSACHUSETTS, spiral lathe work is interwoven. The title, denomination, and location with micro-lettered detail are across the center. On this bank and position, the letter "I" is between identical lozenge-shaped counters at the right. The first we have seen of this denomination, and this earlier series is rarer than the vignetted types introduced in the 1830s. Honest circulation with normal soiling.
    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.
