    Cincinnati, OH - Lot of 3 Farmers & Mechanics Bank of Cincinnati Harrison Engraved Issued Notes.
    William Harrison of Philadelphia engraved this trio with their quaint vignettes and distinctive end panels. These charming notes were issued over 200 years ago and are attractive.
    $5 Augt. 17, 1813 OH-65 G6, Wolka 0469-13. PCGS Very Fine 30PPQ.
    This lovely note has a stately and titled "bank" building at the top, "5" counters are flanking, and the ends show the denomination at left, and OHIO at right. A choice example.
    $20 August 17, 1813 OH-65 G10, Wolka 0469-19. PCGS Very Fine 35.
    Another charming Harrison layout. The horses in the vignette strain to pull the plow. The end panel at left shows a swirling script "Twenty" at left; at the right end, a banner with the denomination and state twirls around a grapevine. An elegant note with no faults.
    $20 Post Note Augt. 17, 1814 OH-65 G16, Wolka 0469-20. PCGS Very Fine 20 Apparent.
    This is a post note and payable "after date." The interesting vignette at the top pays homage to both aspects of the bank title: a ship in the process of being built is across the water from Ceres with her sickle. "Small Edge Splits" do not detract from the delightful Harrison engraving.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. (Total: 3 notes)

    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.
