    1741 Admiral Vernon Medal, Cartagena, -- Rev Scratched -- NGC Details. Unc. Betts-334, Adams CAv 6-G, R.4.
    Although the reverse displays scratches, as noted on the holder, the marks are not overly distracting and are largely confined to the open area at the upper portion. The medal exhibits a strong degree of design detail, providing the piece with plenty of appeal. In addition, the color is attractive, with hues of medium brown, rose, and copper appearing. The rims reveal areas of minor damage.

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.
