    High Grade Kirtland Safety Society Bank $5 Note

    Kirtland, OH - Kirtland Safety Society Bank $5 Mar. 4, 1837 OH-245 G8 Wolka 1424-10 Rust 7. PCGS About New 53PPQ.
    The $5 and $10 Kirtland notes were printed from the next plate engraved at Underwood, Bald, Spencer & Hufty, N. York & Philad. in 1836 with $5A-$5B-$5C-$10B (see Nyholm, Fig. 15 and 1990 ABN Sale, Lot 1462). At top center is a woodsman seated on a log, patting his dog. Identical ends show a boy carrying a shovel on his shoulder in an oval. In the corners are identical "5" dies. This is the most frequently encountered secretarial signature of J. Smith, Jr. and S. Rigdon combination, from the eight combinations listed by Nyholm. It is the most available Kirtland note type with likely 200-225 known today. Lightly handled only and well margined, wider at the sides. Another excellent type note representing the Kirtland series precisely. Eye appeal is premium for the assigned grade.

    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.
