    Exceptional First Series City of St. Paul 10 Cents Note

    St. Paul, MN - Treasurer of the City of Saint Paul 10 Cents July 15, 1862 Hewitt C280-F10-1. PCGS Very Fine 25.
    This is a much rarer first issue City of St. Paul scrip series. Printed on white paper in all green, without an imprint. A quaint steamboat vignette is at the upper left. In the end panel at right, double-line borders vertically separate a cow's head vignette, "10" and TEN CENTS. Titles and obligations are well balanced in the center, and the clause "Redeemable in Currency" is seen, as used on several of these municipal series. Signed by the clerk, but with the engraved mayor's signature at right. There are only two examples enumerated on the census and this is specified as the Hewitt plate note. Exceptionally vivid and bold.

    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.
