    Exceedingly Rare Minneapolis Bank $5 Issued Note

    Minneapolis, MN - Minneapolis Bank $5 March 1, 1864 MN-80 G6a Hewitt B340-D5b. PCGS Fine 12.
    Two Minneapolis Bank issued notes in one auction is an amazing event. The issued note series is printed by American Bank Note Co., New-York with a green protector outlining a white FIVE and with a green security back. There are two listed in the census; the type is priced, but not illustrated in Haxby. The title is across the center with small girl's portrait at the top. At the lower left is a locomotive shown in three-quarter view. At the right end is the Minnesota emblem and motto. The green back has the obligation "Secured by the Pledge of Public Stocks of the United States" within the central die, and there are four other dies overlapped in an artistic pattern. This is not the finest note in the census, but the other example is strongly held. This note shows a very strong grade, solid paper and bright colors for its numerical designation.

    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.
