    Very Rare Bank of Utica, Michigan $1 Proof

    Utica, MI - Bank of Utica $1 18__ MI-450 G2, Lee UTI-1-1. Proof. PCGS Choice About New 58.
    The bank and denomination are rare whether as a proof or issued notes. This proof is printed boldly on India paper from the Underwood, Bald, Spencer & Hufty plates. The lively design, exhibiting American realism, shows a farm scene above. A woman in a wide-brimmed hat, outer skirt bustled, rests on her pitchfork as workers in the distance load hay onto a wagon. Cameo-head counters facing left are flanking. The ends show "1" counters above and transportation vignettes in ovals below. At left, a train travels toward the viewer. At the right, the canal boat passengers appear to be entertained by someone playing music. Noted as "Hole Punch Cancelled," as made. A very well crafted proof with faint handling and wisps of scattered foxing.

    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.
