    VA - Lot of 43 Virginia Civil War Period Corporation, Town, and City Notes.
    This large collection presents the diversity of notes issued by the Corporation, Town, and City issuers and printed by local firms. Nearly all are different. Charlestown 25 cents. Fair, but scarce; Corporation of Charlottesville $1, 8/25/1861 H&L. Fine, but corner off; Corporation of Danville (2); Corporation of Fredericksburg (6) from two series; Town of Leesburg (2); City of Lynchburg (8), several odd denominations including the 30, 60, and 90 cents; City of Petersburg (4); City of Portsmouth (8); Corporation of Richmond (3); City of Richmond (6); Town of Staunton (2). Most are VG or better, a few with faults. Several are underrated types. Close examination is warranted as this would be challenging to reassemble.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society (Total: 43 notes)

    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.
