    Small Letters Both Sides, Vlack 4-E

    (1670-75) 1/2 P St. Patrick Halfpenny, Vlack 4-E, Breen-204, W-11540, VF25 NGC. Die alignment: 360º. A distinctly stringed harp and a bright brass splasher to the crown command attention on this piece, which is more weakly struck at the obverse peripheries. Some pitting to the reverse is noted. Breen called this variety "very rare." The St. Patrick coinage has remained a mystery, though it has been collected as part of the New Jersey Colonial series for many years. Listed on page 43 of the 2018 Guide Book.

    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.
