    Rarer Winona County Bank $2 Proof

    Winona, MN - Winona County Bank $2 Nov. 1, 1858 MN-205 G6a, Hewitt B940-D2b. Proof. PCGS Superb Gem New 67 PPQ.
    This is a rarer denomination Winona County Bank proof. It was printed from the American Bank Note Company engraved plate on India paper and mounted on cardstock. There is a mixture of styles from the predecessor firms. At the top center is the Danforth, Bald & Co. (DB) created allegory of Native American and settler maternal family groups that flank the portrait of Chief Red Jacket. At the lower left is the Baldwin, Adams & Co. portrait of a young boy used on several notes; this was also seen on the Confederate States Type 32 notes adapted from the Mechanics Savings Bank plates modified for CSA use. At the lower right is a Native American huntress adapted from 1840s style Danforth imprints. The blue serial number "87625" is for demonstration purposes. Noted as "Hole Punch Cancelled" and "Mounted on Cardstock" as made. There are only three $2 proofs listed on the census, and this certainly is the finest. This is a stunning presentation and exemplary state of preservation.

    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.
