    The Second Hokah Proof and the Sole Reported Example

    Hokah, MN - La Crosse & La Crescent Bank $2 MN-50 UNL Hewitt B200-D2-1a. Proof. PCGS Choice New 63.
    Once again, this Hewitt plate note is gorgeous to view and is the sole reported proof, which makes it effectively unique at present. This India paper proof was printed by the American Bank Note Company using the $1-$2 plate. The layout used is a bit spread out with standing Union right of center. At the lower left are numerous farm implements and at the lower right is a young girl's portrait. The title flows in opposite curves at the upper left. As above, there is an engraver's error with "Reg'r" next to the Auditor's signature line vertically at left instead of "Aud'r" as required. This is a significant, Haxby unlisted proof type and the only example known. Hole Punch Cancelled in the India paper only. Finely crafted and again presenting itself as a unique opportunity.

    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.
