    Second Bank of the Interior Serial Number 1 Note-Complete the Pair

    Albany, NY - Bank of the Interior $10 NY-70 G10a Jan. 12, 1858. Serial Number 1. PCGS Very Fine 25 Apparent.
    This is the second member of the elite serial number 1 pair from the Bank of the Interior. Engraved and printed by Rawdon, Wright, Hatch, & Edson, New-York with a full green tint plate and outlined protector TEN. At the top center are two females, as allegorical representatives of Plenty and Mechanics, over the Gothic title. At the lower left is an eagle and shield and, deftly set into the lower right corner, is the octagonal New York bank seal as required. The overall quality matches up with the $5 quite naturally as they certainly have traveled their road together for likely 150-plus years. Vibrant from the face, but also noted with "Mounting Remnants on Back; Minor Ink Erosion." The number "1" is very clear, but the note received wear and was also trimmed very tightly all around in the "New England" style. The type is plated in Haxby, but this is the only $10 example we have actually handled. This is a superb companion for the previous issued number 1 note, and it would be fitting if they continued their journey together.

    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.
