    The Final Member of this Elite Nicollet County Bank Color Proof Quartet

    St. Peter, MN - Nicollet County Bank $5 18__ MN-165 G8a Hewitt B760-D5. Proof. PCGS Very Choice New 64.
    The $5 denomination color proof is the final member of this elite set and beautifully conceived by the American Bank Note Company, printed on India paper proof mounted on its original cardstock. As a proof, this is unique and the only reported example. Along with that are two known issued $5 notes including the Hewitt collection piece plated in his book. A full light orange tint crosses the surface, like all the notes from the series, with a deeper red die across the bottom center outlining a white protector FIVE. A dynamic logging camp scene shows a lumberjack with axe poised at the height of his swing, while another logger takes a break and smokes a pipe; other workers, including a youth with horses are behind, and logs are seen floating in the river. At the lower left is Washington and at the lower right is a Wellstood engraved allegorical female seated in an ornate "V." The note is Hole Punch Cancelled only through the India paper. This is a beautiful color proof, perhaps not as perfect as the $2 or $3 denominations. But it is the only proof known at present and can boast museum caliber credentials. A glorious finale to this phenomenal color proof set.

    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.
