    Dual Use St. Paul Treasurer Bill with Embossed Advertising Stamped

    St. Paul, MN - Treasurer of the City of Saint Paul/E.D. Brown, Boot & Shoe Store 5 Cents Nov. 1, 1862 Hewitt C280-F5-3/L440-A. PCGS Very Fine 30 Apparent.
    This is a bright and vivid example of a scarce type host note with an embossed merchant designation. Printed on yellow paper by the American Bank Note Company in a small scrip note size format. Wheat and farm tools are at the top center. An intricate pattern border all around encloses the title and obligation. With the sharply embossed oval advertising stamp of E. D. Brown, St. Paul, seen from the back, listed in Hewitt as L440-A, and going through the note to the face. Noted with a "Small Internal Tear at Center; Ad Stamp." At first glance, it looks like a New note. The blank verso is the Hewitt plate note on page 382. A fascinating example for any scrip note specialist.

    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.
