    Extremely Rare Strafford Bank $50 Note

    Dover, NH - Strafford Bank $50 April, 1, 1851 NH-75 G84 SENC. PCGS Fine 12 Apparent.
    This is an extremely rare Toppan, Carpenter & Co. engraved series denomination without a tint. The type is SENC in Haxby and the rarity is "None Known" in the Whitman Encyclopedia, which had a large pool of collections from which to study notes and obtain plate examples. Two females seated at top center represent Industry. At the left end is a woman in a hat. The right end shows a standing farmer in a cornfield. The note was issued and cancelled with some small signature holes. It is a bit rough, but a great rarity. Noted as "Hole Punch Cancelled; Edge Splits; Tears; Damage; and Hinge and Tape Repairs." On the back is the endorsement "The Sons of Malta Midnight Parade Nov. 10, 1859." This presents well enough considering it might be the only example available.
    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.
