    Rare and Informative Reports
    On the Suppression of Counterfeiting

    Association of Banks for the Suppression of Counterfeiting. Annual Reports of the Board of Managers of the Association of Banks for the Suppression of Counterfeiting. Twelve of the 13 annual reports issued from 1854 to 1866, being the first through 13th, lacking only the eighth for completion. Boston, 1854-1866. 8vo, original printed paper covers [final with plain covers]. Occasional wear to covers. Very good to fine copies.

    A nearly complete set of this rare but important publication. The Association funded the prosecution of counterfeiters, and did much to encourage rigorous law enforcements efforts against counterfeiting. Most of these reports include highly detailed accounts of successful convictions, giving not only the names of those convicted, but a description of what they passed and where, as well as the resulting sentences. Single issues are desirable; complete sets are virtually unknown. Estimate $1,000.

    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.
