    A third July 1, 1862, Livingston-series note and very rare. This faces up as a very vibrant and attractive example. Similar to the previous $1.25, but printed on delicate white rag paper. Printed from the same or a nearly identical plate. Intricate ends and corners, and a wavy-line border at top and bottom, contain the typeset text within. Town and date are at the top, half-shaded ONE DOLLAR & 25 CENTS is underneath, and the Gothic "In Confederate Money" is bolded across. The obligation near the bottom states it was "Redeemable at J. M. Bryant's Store, C.[herokee] N.[ation], or at my Headquarters." The issuer is engraved. The T. R. Livingston & Co. countersignature is on the blank back. No. 151. Noted with "Edge and Internal Splits." We have cataloged and sold only one other note from the issue, also from the Newman Collection. That 25-cent note graded PCGS Very Fine 20 with stains realized $4,700 in Newman Internet 3 on May 3, 2017. Well margined all around and very attractive. The last available note from this July 1, 1862, Livingston series from the Newman Collection.

    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.
