​It was in the mid-1950s that I first met Eric P. Newman. For those of us interested in numismatic research, Eric was the guru. When he studied something, he did it inside out and backward. The result was that his works on Fugio cents, on Machin's Mills coppers, and colonial paper money were definitive.

Offered in our December 2017 Collectors Choice Online Auction is an exceptional MS-66 (PCGS) Lincoln cent that ranks among the finest survivors of the desirable 1915-D issue. The pinkish luster that dominates each side displays amber and violet patina across the obverse. Square and sharp rims are reflective of the strong definition of the devices throughout. The fields are mattelike and satiny, complementing the pristine preservation and enhancing the superlative eye appeal.

In our January NYINC sale we are offering two Internment Camp notes from Hay, New South Wales. The notes were issued for use within Internment Camp 7. The issue was printed in three denominations; One Shilling, Two Shillings, and Sixpence. With most pieces stamp cancelled, or destroyed, very few survivors exist.
