    Desirable Ramsey County Bank $3 Proof

    St. Paul, MN - Ramsey County Bank $3 Dec. 1, 1858 MN-150 G6a Hewitt B700-D3b. Proof. PCGS Very Choice New 64.
    The $3 denomination from any extremely rare set of notes such as this will usually command a premium in relation to the other denominations. This proof uses wonderfully engraved pastoral vignettes originally created by Bald, Cousland & Co. prior to 1858 and used here on this American Bank Note Company imprinted India paper proof. This is the Hewitt plate note. At top center is an Indian family in a canoe, the father paddling and the mother and children riding at the opposite end. At the lower left, a man carries hay to his horse and at the lower right is a girl with wavy hair. The red protector THREE flows across the bottom center. Virtually all the proofs offered from these sheets are Hole Punch Cancelled and this is so designated. This note is evenly margined on all sides and vibrant.

    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.
