    St. Paul, MN - Dayton Bank Uncut Sheet of $1-$1-$2-$5 185_ MN-135 G2a-G2-G4a-G6a, Hewitt D1b-D1b-D2b-D5b. Remainder. PCGS About New 50.
    The Dayton Bank remainder notes are the most frequently seen banknotes from the state, but they appear as uncut sheets only infrequently; this is only the fourth we have cataloged since 2004. Lymen Dayton, pictured on each denomination, had grand intentions for his eponymous bank. However, Dayton did circulate a few notes, and by 1859, the state reported them as worthless. The Danforth, Wright & Co. engraving is exquisite. On each note, Dayton's custom portrait is supported by vignettes. The $1 note has the family groups so often contrasted, the $2 note shows Plenty and Navigation, and the $5 note has two stunning trios of allegorical females at the top. The minor handling is seen from the back on this gorgeous, full-selvedge sheet.
    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.
