    Very Rare Brandon Savings Institution Issued Note

    Brandon, MS - Brandon Savings Institution $1 Jan. 11, 1840. Kraus 20390b, Leggett-UNL. PCGS Very Fine 20.
    The issuer is very rare and the series was unpublished in the earlier Leggett reference. This issued note is endorsed vertically on the face as "Redeemable in Miss. in Union Bank post notes." A well-engraved plate by Draper, Toppan, Longacre & Co. was used to print the series. In a strange juxtaposition, the train with Samson class locomotive traveling away from the viewer appears to be headed straight for the river, on a collision course with the passing steamer. Oval "1" counters are on either side. End panels show ONE above and below with a tall vignette between. At left, standing figure with a masculine torso forms a hybrid vignette with what is traditionally a Minerva head. At right, standing Ceres holds a sheaf of wheat and sickle. A cornucopia is at her feet. Listed as a Rarity-7 note; we could find no recent auction records. This is a very bright note with excellent paper body, and a key Mississippi issued note.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society

    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.
