    1787 Hispaniola Auctori Plebis Token
    Breen-1148, Blundered Date, VG10

    1787 TOKEN Auctori Plebis Token VG10 NGC. Breen-1148, R.7. The Auctori Plebis token series includes pieces with both left and right-facing busts, though it is uncertain if the same coiner made both varieties. The bust-right pieces display an alternate reverse motif, depicting a harp, with one of three legends around the border: HISPANIOLA, NORTH WALES, or BRITAINS ISLES. Breen describes all as extremely rare, and lists two varieties for the HISPANIOLA variant. This piece represents the "blundered date" variety, with the 3 misplaced far left. The smooth, problem-free surfaces boast even chestnut-brown patina, while the central devices are well outlined, and all legends are readable. This is a pleasing example of this rare bust-right token.

    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.
