    Description

    Bedford, VA - Switchville Savings Bank 50 Cents Feb. 15, 1862 Jones & Littlefield BB05-10. PCGS Fine 12 Apparent.
    This rare issuer is seldom encountered. An interesting title with the imprint of Johnson, Pr., Lynchburg. A dog and safe motif is at the top, a standing allegorical female occupies the left end, and a "50" counter is at the right. "Edge Splits and Minor Damage; Small Hole at Left; and Hinge Repairs on Back" are noted by grading. The flaws are minor in the grand scheme as these are rarely offered for sale.
    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.
