    Rarely Available Interpol
    Reports on Counterfeiting

    International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol). Counterfeits and Forgeries / Contrefaçons et Falsifications. Six 28 cm binders, seven 32 cm binders, and approximately 50 large envelopes, comprising all together well over 10,000 pages of heavily illustrated international reports on both genuine and counterfeit bank notes, as well as travelers' checks, coins, and other financial instruments. Reports range at least from the early 1960s to 1990s. Many of the later reports are illustrated in color. These exhaustive reports are continually updated by Interpol, and circulate mostly within the worlds of law enforcement, international banking, bank note printing, and treasury officials of governments around the world. Most of the reports here present are concerned with information on genuine notes, though many of the more modern reports in envelopes focus on counterfeit U.S. notes. They contain an extraordinary amount of information, but are rarely encountered in the numismatic world. Condition varies, but generally the reports are fine or nearly so, while the binders may be a bit worn. A rare opportunity.
    Estimate $750.

    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.
