    Washington Liberty and Security Penny
    MS65 Red, Baker-30

    Undated PENNY Washington Liberty & Security Penny MS65 Red NGC. Baker-30, W-11050, R.2. Produced in England in 1795, this large, undated copper saw extensive circulation and most extant pieces exhibit light to moderate wear. Varieties are known with both plain and ornamented rims. This piece represents the plain rims variant, and is the finest of just two full Red examples certified (4/14). The level of preservation is exceptional, with rich copper-red luster over both sides and no noticeable surface flaws. The strike is bold, and some minor softness on the reverse rim at 9 o'clock is normal for this variety.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    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.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
