Fully Issued Minneapolis Bank $2 NoteMinneapolis, MN - Minneapolis Bank $2 March 1, 1864 MN-80-G4a, Hewitt B340-D2b. PCGS Very Fine 20 Apparent.
This is a very rare and fully issued $2 note from the bank. The superb face engraving is by the American Bank Note Company. Well regarded by the author, an example of this type is illustrated on the cover of Volume 2 of the Haxby quartet. This issued note has the green security back. The face shows a little girl playing dress-up with pearl necklaces in an oval frame, beneath the curving title and above the arced denomination. Numerical counters are on either side. In the upper corners are "2" counters on lathe work. Sir Edwin Landseer's Monarch of the Glen is at lower left; at lower right, a screaming eagle with wings upraised with wings upraised is perched on a rock, high up in the clouds. The green protector outlines the white TWO. The green back is similar in style to those used on the Thorne's Bank with the obligation "Secured by the Pledge of Public Stocks of the United States" within the central die. Noted with some "Rust Stains," seen more heavily on the back. The paper body and color are excellent.

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.
