    Very Rare and Colorful Heath Store Scrip

    Richmond, VA - Alf. A. Heath, "at my Store, No. 259 Main St." 25 Cents Feb. 27, 1862 Jones & Littlefield PR60-394. PCGS Very Fine 20 Apparent.
    Not unlisted, but this is very rare, colorful and vibrant store scrip. Printed on light rag paper without an imprint. A clipper ship sailing stormy seas is at the top in blue-green ink. End panels show decorative border cuts in rust-red; that color is also used for the textual denomination that is below the vignette and the flanking "25 Cts." Obligations, date, location and title are in blue. A beautiful two-color note. "Edge Splits; Pieces Missing; Minor Mounting Remnants on Back" are noted. The color contrast yields a very distinctive type, and the flaws are minor compared to its overall appeal.
    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.
