Beautifully engraved by the American Bank Note Company on India paper proof only using Bald, Cousland & Co. (or BC as abbreviated) predecessor firm vignettes. At the upper left is a river rafting scene with a man fiddling on deck for cadence and amusement of the boatmen, with a steamboat in background.

    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.
