    Extremely Rare Brigham City 5 Cents in Home Products

    Brigham City, UT - Brigham City Co-operative 5 Cents in Home Products Undated Rust UNL, Nyholm UNL. PCGS Fine 15.
    This is from an extremely rare series of Co-operative scrip, and the Newman Collection contained a few examples that added to the census of compiled pieces. Nyholm notes in his book that there are very few known from all series, with some of those series still unconfirmed. Another expressive extraordinary grade rarity. Printed on white paper without imprint. Bordered around the perimeter with rounded corner flourishes. All text is within. "Good for Five Cents" is in bold, which is in a different typeface than the 10 cents sold in Newman Part VII. Across in bold is HOME PRODUCTS; the issuer is below and signature at the bottom. With bright, strong paper body, and the sharp secretary's (recorder's) signature of Wm. L. Watkins (served 1867-1875). The 10 cents note from this series realized $8,812.50 in Newman Part VII. This is another superb note and among the finest Brigham City scrip notes known.
    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.
