    Very Rare Mount Hope Bank $100 Proof

    Bristol, RI - Mount Hope Bank $100 182_ RI-45 G20, Durand 171. Proof. PCGS Extremely Fine 45 Apparent.
    This is a very rare Reed, Stiles & Co, imprint laid paper proof and only the second we have seen besides the Haxby plate note. Listed and priced in the Whitman Encyclopedia, Volume 5, but not plated. A rare vignette from the imprint is at top center with an oval anchor motif between the harbor and wharf scene left and the farming community and goods to the right. Intricate end panels in their style, with a curved cartouche at left showing ONE HUNDRED, and the state in the right cartouche. Noted as "Stained," and there is damp staining in the center. Pen squiggles in the signature blocks. A great rarity from this bank with available low denomination remainders known.

    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.
