    Rare, Fully Issued Chisago County $5 Note

    Taylors Falls, MN - Chisago County Bank $5 March 9, 1859 MN-190 G6a, Hewitt B840-D5. PCGS Very Fine 20.
    Like some Minnesota issued banknotes, much rarer than the census count conveys. These are generally closely held by collectors for their rarity and beauty. This note was printed from the beautifully executed American Bank Note Company imprint plate. Most of its layout, color tint and vignette style is adapted from the Wellstood imprint group. A Native American buffalo-hunting scene is at top center. The rider in the foreground, hair blowing as the horse speeds along, prepares to strike the fatal blow with his bow and arrow. At lower left, Justice sits on a large "V" counter. At lower right is a portrait of a girl with hair in ringlets. The base vignette shows a reclining Native American man. There is a full, deep red lace tint going across the note with outlined slanting "5" protectors flanking the central axis. There are over ten listed on the census. And this is a beautiful note. The type is rarely offered for sale publicly and its vibrant color, ample margins and superb vignettes make it one of the most attractive Minnesota notes in the sale.

    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.
