    Very Rare Bank of Vicksburg $15 Remainder

    Vicksburg, MS - Bank of Vicksburg $15 18__ MS-210 G56 Kraus 4421. Remainder. PCGS Very Fine 35 Apparent.
    Intaglio engraved $15 Obsolete notes from any state are a great rarity. A gorgeous $10-$15-$20-$25 plate was engraved for this Underwood, Bald, Spencer & Hufty printed series. There are only few examples known to us, including one proof that was in the 1990 ABN sale in New York. This example, we believe, is the only $15 denomination type for the entire state. At the top center are two allegorical females with an urn, flanked by classical conjoined cameo profiles in ovals. The ends match, using a cherub in the center over a "15" counter on shaded lathe work and FIFTEEN arced over the vignette. Our pedigree and census research came up with few confirmed examples of this type. There was a proof on the solitary archive sheet in the 1990 ABN Sale. Also, a remainder like this was in the 1979 NASCA Brookdale sale with the Montgomery notes. Designated as Apparent because of a "Small Edge Tear at UL of Center." This is a key odd denomination in general, but especially so from Mississippi.

    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.
