    Design.
    The regular Shield nickel design, struck in copper with a plain edge.

    Commentary. Only three or four examples of this pattern variety are known, and this is only the second piece we have handled; the first in 16 years. NGC has certified this piece and one they described as PR64 Red. PCGS has certified two examples graded PR64 Red and PR65 Red. The Newman specimen is numerically the finest Judd-1387 certified.

    Physical Description. The extraordinarily bold strike and high wire rim around both sides gives the appearance of a thick planchet. Subdued mirrors display rich orange mint color blended with delicate bluish-brown patina. Both sides exhibit trivial carbon flecks evidencing the originality of its surfaces.

    Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $35; 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.
