    Very Rare Ramsey County Fractional Note

    St. Paul, MN - Treasurer of Ramsay County 10 Cents October 20, 1862 Hewitt C320-F10. PCGS Very Fine 25 Apparent.
    This is a very rare fractional issue from Ramsey County, especially compared to dollar denominated remainder notes from the issuer. This is the Hewitt plate note and a vibrant, appealing example. Printed on white bond paper in all green, without an imprint. Perpendicular, in the right end panel, an eagle flies with a banner in its beak and the Stars and Stripes in its talons. In the far background are factories and ships at sail. Titles and obligations are across the left four-fifths, with the text "redeemable in currency," as often seen on Minnesota scrip. There are seven fractional notes listed on the census, with two 10 cents notes including this, the finest known. Noted with "Minor Mounting Remnants on Back," which do not show to the face, and the Hewitt plate note. An exceptional Civil War scrip note rarity in stellar condition.
    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.
