    Choice New Market Bank $2 Issued Note

    New Market, NH - New Market Bank $2 Dec. 3, 1855 NH-230 G4a. PCGS Very Fine 30.
    A second extremely rare New Market Bank issued note engraved and printed by Toppan, Carpenter & Co., Philad., New-York & Boston. This is a listed and illustrated type in Haxby and Whitman, but extremely rare. The condition is excellent for an issued Obsolete from a sound bank whose notes were redeemed upon demand and circulated readily. At the top left is a wide farm vignette. The foreground shows a seated family taking a rest, the mother with an infant on her lap. Behind, a man sharpens his scythe while watching others load hay into a wagon in the distance. At the lower left is a portrait, appearing to be Zachary "Rough and Ready" Taylor, who died in office as President in 1852. At the bottom right is a woman feeding hungry chickens, and at the top, left of the counter, is a small vignette of a little girl. Across the bottom center is protector TWO as printed. Wonderful condition, fully framed all around and not a victim of the often encountered "New England" cut seen on Obsoletes from the region.

    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.
