    Possibly Unique Richmond Exchange Scrip

    Richmond, VA - I. Peyser, Richmond Exchange 50 Cents April 1, 1862 Jones & Littlefield PR60-705. PCGS Very Fine 25 Apparent.
    The Virginia section of this Newman Part VII sale is compact and historic. Collectors recognize notes known to them only from the illustrations Eric contributed when Jones and Littlefield visited St. Louis to study the Virginia currency. The condition of this Peyser note is extraordinary and its style striking. Printed on blue ruled paper. A tall vignette of Ceres is at the left end with a shield. Titles and obligation are across. The upper right counter is in a square floral pattern cartouche. Noted with "Minor Mounting Remnants and Stains on Back." This is noted as the Jones & Littlefield plate note and appears unique to us. Priceless for the most astute specialists as it combines great rarity and vivid eye appeal.
    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.
