    Rare Strafford Bank $10 without Tint Variant

    Dover, NH - Strafford Bank (2nd) $10 June 2, 1851 NH-75 G60. PCGS Very Fine 20 Apparent.
    This is a rare Toppan, Carpenter & Co. issued note without a tint. Agriculture, reclining against a bale, holds up some stalks of wheat. In the background, men load hay onto a wagon as a train passes in the far distance. A John Marshall portrait in an oval frame is in the lower left. At top right, a young woman holding a sheaf of wheat turns her head rearward, as if someone has spoken to her. Since her hat is on her back, suspended from its ribbons, she needs to use her hand to shield her eyes from the sun. Signed and an early issue date, without a tint. Known as proofs and as cancelled notes like this. Noted as "Hole Punch Cancelled" and with "Minor Edge Damage at Bottom Left." This is another rare and underrated type from the bank.
    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.
