    Very Rare Exchange Bank Monogrammed Plate $100 Color Proof -Ex: Wismer

    St. Louis, MO - Exchange Bank of St. Louis, at___ $100 18__ MO-10 G50a. Proof. PCGS Choice About New 58.
    The last of seven Exchange Bank proofs obtained by Eric in 1939. This former Wismer collection example is the plated note (W-58) in the January 1928 The Numismatist listings for Missouri (continued). A slightly later series, plate A, India paper proof. On this note, the imprint of Bald, Cousland & Co. New York & Philada. is at the bottom, and the ABC monogram is just left of the "100" die at upper right. A rose-colored (a hue variation of the tinting that was also observed in some the 1990 ABN Sale lots from this bank) lace tint covers most of the face, but not the blocks to be filled in. A darker tint outlines the "100" white protector at the bottom. Daniel Webster's oval portrait replaces Bogy's just right of center. As on the previous, Morning occupies the left end, and the Exchange Bank building is at lower right. "Hole Punch Cancelled," as made, and with no faults noted by grading. Tremendously attractive and boasting one of the great Bald, Cousland & Co. layouts. This "with monogram" high-denomination proof was not in the 1990 ABN Sale lots. An extremely rare $100 proof and superb-looking example.
    Ex: D. C. Wismer, July 1939;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.
