    Gem and Very Rare Baraboo Proof - Ex: Newman

    Baraboo, WI - Sauk County Bank $3 18__ G6a Proof PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    The trove of Minnesota and Wisconsin proofs that were contained in the Newman Collection are already legendary. Though proofs from this bank are known from the Krause-Bookbinder archive and the ABNco., the Newman proofs are full gems. A bold and colorful India paper proof mounted on the original card by Danforth, Wright & Co. of the three $3 proofs confirmed by us, this appears to be the finest. The red lace tint has darker devices at the upper left and right and a dark red protector THREE across at the bottom center. The bucolic scene, under the arced title, shows cows making their way through the water as one stops to take a drink. A portrait of a woman holding a dove is at lower left. Noted as "Hole Punch Cancelled" and "Mounted on Cardstock" as made. The denomination was missing from the Krause Collection. A Gem proof and desirable $3 denomination from that set. Last sold in our Newman Part VII sale for $1,762.50. Wisconsin proofs have been active the past year and notes such as this are always in demand.
