    Brigham Young Signed and Reissued Kirtland Safety Society Bank $1 Note

    (Salt Lake City, U.T.) - Reissued Kirtland Safety Society Bank $1 18__ OH-245 G2 Wolka 1424-02 Rust 67. PCGS Very Fine 35 Apparent.
    This is a bold and attractive Reissued $1 Kirtland note exhibiting great paper body and handsome, clean surfaces. The host $1 note was engraved and printed from the Underwood, Bald, Spencer & Hufty, N. York & Philad. small plate (i.e., $1A-$1B-$2A-$3A). At the top center, under long arced title, is a man shearing sheep. This vignette is flanked by left-facing cameo heads with the numeral "1." Identical ends have an early train in an oval center, and four corner "1" numerals. This plate "A" note began with secretarial (or "Scribe") signature of J. Smith, Jr. and S. Rigdon, The original issued date is not visible, and the embossed Seal of the Twelve Apostles is difficult to see. Reissued with countersignatures at Salt Lake City by N. K. Whitney, Brigham Young and Heber C. Kimball. At the upper left is "TB," Thomas Bullock's initials. The Heber C. Kimball signature is directly on top of, and mostly obliterating, Sidney Rigdon's name (he was excommunicated in 1844). There were 38 $1 notes resigned and this is the second highest serial number in the official records. Apparent, but this a bright and well framed note, cited with a "Small Edge Tear at Bottom Left" which is hard to see. Bold and vibrant, with excellent signatures. This represents the much rarer Reissued lower denominations well. Conservatively estimated compared with some of the auction records of the past decade, particularly with the results from the 2008 Schingoethe Mormon note sections.

    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.
