    Nearly Uncirculated Straits Settlements 1935 Dollar Note

    Straits Settlements - Government of the Settlements $1 January 1, 1935 P-16. PCGS Choice About New 58 Apparent.
    Since this type circulated widely in the tropical climate of the Strait of Malacca in Southeast Asia, high-grade notes are rare. This is a small-format type printed by Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co. of New Malden, Surrey, England. There is a male portrait on the front. The back shows a profile cameo head at left and the tiger watermark at the right. At the center is a striking tiger vignette, showing the great feline in a clearing, with wind ruffling the grass in the background. Noted with "Minor Stains," but this is just a patch of foxing on the right top back edge. From the face, this has a Gem appearance and shows vibrant color. This would make an excellent pairing with the previous Sarawak 1935 dollar bill.
    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.
