    A very scarce altered bill from the Stillwater Canal Bank, Orono, Maine with the host note engraved by New England Bank Note Co./Patent Stereo Steel Plate. The wide scene at top shows a lumber mill operation to either side of a dam, with busy workers on small craft in the foreground. End panels show cattle between denomination block counters at left, and a milkmaid under a FIVE on lathe work at right. A white FIVE protector is outlined by micro-lettering. The title is well placed, but the city text is tight. No rarity rating or price listed in the Whitman Encyclopedia for this type.
    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.
