    Rare Stephen Mason, Richmond 12 Cents Note

    Richmond, VA- Due by Stephen Mason 12 Cents October 4, 1861 Jones & Littlefield PR60-562. PCGS Fine 15 Apparent.
    This and the 37 Cents (37-1/2 Cents?) are the rarest from the issuer and listed as "7G" in the Virginia book. With scythe and sheaf of grain, Ceres stands on a plinth in a niche at the left end; an ornamental cartouche at the left end holds the perpendicular textual denomination. A double ruled border is around the perimeter. The denomination "12 Cts." flanks a central flourish. Noted are: "Edge Tears and Minor Damage; Tape Repair on Back; Small Holes." A curious odd denomination from the Civil War period. A rarity from a well collected location.
    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.
