    Rare Hays County 25 Cents Note

    San Marcos, TX - Treasurer of Hays County 25 Cents Sept. 1, 1862 Medlar 1. PCGS Very Fine 20 Apparent.
    This county is rarely offered, and this is an excellent note. Printed on brown paper without imprint. The bold red textual denomination "Twenty-Five Cents" stands out. Pattern borders are at the top and bottom. End panels are composed of type ornaments and border cuts. Sharply signed and dated. The only example we have handled was the Bill Bond collection note in January 2007. This note is superior to that and the Medlar plate note. Noted with "Small Repairs at Bottom Left of Center," which are trivial. Another exceptionally vivid note and perfect for a county set.
    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.
