1739 Porto Bello Medal
1739 Admiral Vernon Medal, Porto Bello, VF30 NGC. Betts-203,
Adams PBv 32-EE, R.6. A wonderful example, this piece
demonstrates significantly more eye appeal than the grade may
imply, as the majority of the design elements on the obverse in
particular remain strong, with the wear concentrated on the highest
portions of the devices. Among the diagnostics for this variety is
a die injury at the T of PORTO. Light brown and brass shades add to
the attractiveness of this specimen.

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.
