Selections from Newman Collection Internet Part 3

Nearly 1,500 unreserved currency lots from the Eric P. Newman Collection Internet Part 3 are available for bidding at Heritage Auctions. Colonial, Continental, Obsolete, Confederate, and Fractional notes are included this latest Newman Internet auction. Some of the many highlights are listed below with links to the images and full descriptions:

1775 Massachusetts Bay Colony 5 Pounds 4 Shillings Bond

1775 Massachusetts Bay Colony 5 Pounds 4 Shillings Bond

The 1775 Massachusetts Bay Colony 5 Pounds 4 Shillings Bond loans helped finance the infancy of the American Revolution. Known as “King Philip” bonds, they were printed from a Revere-engraved copper plate. This iconic rarity is a sharp and vibrant early plate state example.

Perforated Block of Eight First Issue Fr.1229 5-Cent Notes

From his Fractional currency holdings, Newman’s exceedingly rare Perforated Block of Eight First Issue Fr.1229 5-Cent Notes is making its first auction appearance. Uncut items are always sought after by collectors, and this is only the second such no- monogram 5-cent block of eight offered by Heritage.

Confederate Sheet of 10 T20 $20 Notes

Confederate Sheet of 10 T20 $20 Notes

Another uncut rarity, a Confederate Sheet of 10 T20 $20 Notes provides a significant opportunity for collectors. This bold example is superior to a majority of similar Confederate sheets sold recently.

Confederate States of America - Uncut Sheet of Ten T20 $20 September 2, 1861 PF-8 Cr. 142 Notes. (https://currency.ha.com/itm/confederate-notes/1861-issues/confederate-states-of-america-uncut-sheet-of-ten-t20-20-september-2-1861-pf-8-cr-142-notes-pcgs-extremely-fine-45/a/241626-89500.s)

Undated Steamer J.A. Cotten 25 Cents Note

Steamer J.A. Cotten 25 Cents Note

And lastly is the enigmatic Undated Steamer J.A. Cotten 25 Cents Note, worthy of exhaustive research because of its possible connection to the Confederate steamer J.A. Cotton. Accounts show the partially ironclad steamer being sunk by Union forces in 1863 at Bayou Teche. If confirmed as a Confederate navy-related scrip issue, this note’s historical importance cannot be overstated.
