    Gem Bank of Red Wing (1st) $3 Proof

    Red Wing, MN - Bank of Red Wing (1st) $3 18__ MN-105 G6a Hewitt B500-D3b. Proof. PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
    Most likely the finest proof known of any denomination from this first Bank of Red Wing title, printed by the American Bank Note Company as an India paper proof only. The Hewitt plate note offered here also exhibits a well-balanced design. At the top is a wide vignette with a centered American shield flanked at the left by an Indian with mountains in the background and at the right, by a farmer with a river behind. At the lower left, a horse nibbles on the farmer's wheat sheaves, and at the lower right is an ornate "3" with three cherubs. The red protector THREE runs across the bottom. This is Hole Punch Cancelled when prepared at the ABN. There are four proofs noted in the census, but we believe the others are strongly held and perhaps unavailable. This is a Gem New 66PPQ example and a stunner, likely not to be improved.

    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.
