    Rare Monticello Bank $50 Note

    Charlottesville, VA - Monticello Bank $50 June 19, 1860 VA-45 G28a, Jones & Littlefield BC25-35. PCGS Fine 15.
    The $50 note from this American Bank Note Company series is much rarer than the $20 or lesser denominations from the bank. The color and layout are striking. Monticello as engraved for the series is at the right. The arced title is at top center with a vermillion FIFTY DOLLARS arced directly underneath. The left end shows standing America engraved by Alfred Jones, a vignette also used on the $20 demand notes. Other color details include a large protector "L," upper counter surrounds and a left end outlined perpendicular die. We have auctioned two others that easily realized over $1,000. This is a pleasing, perfect Fine note with excellent color.
    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.
