    Plainview, Minnesota Scrip-Reported Unique as Town and Issuer

    Plainview, MN - O. Wilcox 10 Cents November 1, 1862 Hewitt D520-F10. PCGS Extremely Fine 40 Apparent.
    This is among the rarest Minnesota private scrip notes, and there are only two notes in the census from the issuer and town. This distinctive color note is plated in the Hewitt book and also appears on the color highlight plates at the beginning. Lithographed in blue on white paper by J.Lipman, Milwaukee. The style is identical to several Wisconsin issuers listed in the Chester L. Krause reference and in the auction sales of his collection. A leaf and vine design appears between the rectangular border and the oval enclosing the title, denomination and obligation. Circular "10" counters are diagonally situated in each corner. Noted as, "PC [pen cancelled]; Minor Mounting Remnants and Stains on Back" and also as the Hewitt plate note. A unique item and an important note for the specialist.
    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.
