Swanson MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT As most of you know, the Society of Paper Money Collectors war organized less than three years ago. At the formation, Mr. Hank Bieciuk took the responsibility as Editor with the understanding that a permanent Editor be appointed as soon as pos- sible. Many persons were contacted, but only recently a person was found who would assume the responsibility. The new Editor is Miss Barbara Mueller, and she has been Editor of other publications for several years. It is now up to the membership to furnish the new Editor with articles and ads so she can put out a magazine of which we can be proud. Many of you give talks to coin clubs on paper money, and we are asking that you write some of these up and send in for publication. Knowing some of the problems of the SOPMC, we all owe Mr. Hank Bieciuk a debt of gratitude for acting as Editor until someone else was found, and I want the membership to know that I personally appreciate all he has done for the organization. It was impossible for Mr. Bieciuk to continue as Editor indefinitely, as he was taking too much time from his personal business. No doubt it has suffered during the time he acted as Editor. It was not always possible for Hank to drop his activities to get the magazine out on time, but with a permanent Editor, we will strive to have the magazine come out on time. Hank, we all want to thank you for the wonderful job you have done over the last two and one-half years in putting out the magazine and keeping the organization together. Mr. Earl Hughes of Mitchell, Indiana, has graciously agreed to house all books given to the Society for a future library, so if any member has any books he would like to give, please send to Mr. Hughes. We hope to have a permanent librarian in the near future. It takes the effort of many to improve a new organization, so let us offer Barbara our full support, and I know you will. We are moving forward and only need more of our members to contribute a little of their talent. We welcome Miss Barbara Mueller into our organization and know, with her help, it will improve. THOS. C. BAIN, President, SOPMC The Future of Your Magazine The editorship of Paper Money is both an honor and a challenge. It is an honor to be asked to continue the educational work carried on through a remarkably well conceived and produced journal. It is a challenge to take up the task at a time of rapid growth in the Society's membership. Therefore, if I am to serve you successfully, I will need your personal coopera- tion. First, I must know what kind of a magazine you want. Of course, Paper Money will continue to carry the same authentic, useful sort of articles for which it has become famous. But with so many new members coming in, there is the possibility that they will find nothing useful on these pages. Do you want the majority of articles to deal with U. S., Confederate and Canadian paper money, as in the past? Or do you look for a leavening of articles on foreign material? Are you in need of basic guidance in the hobby? Do you find that some of the articles are "over your head"? Whatever the case may be, tell me about it. A postal card will do. I will try to answer all suggestions and will certainly value and take heed of them. Next, to fulfill your needs, we must have authors and articles. I realize that not all of you can contribute articles because of your lack of experience in the hobby. But there are many who are not now writing articles from their superior store of knowledge of paper money. They are the authors we need. Don't let fears about committing yourself to paper deter you. This is not a literary quarterly. We in the editorial office will "backstop" your style. It's your facts we need. And we absolutely must have a continuing flow of these factual articles if you are to receive Paper Money on time. No articles, no magazine. Paper Money is the logical place for publication of articles and listings of permanent value. In the past it has received generous support and publicity from the general commercial numismatic publications. We cannot begrudge them any- thing. But it is rather distressing to see our members writing scholarly articles for these somewhat ephemeral magazines. General promotional and instructional articles are more appropriate for them and will help build this Society. But the erudite material belongs here. I am confident that together we can maintain and even enhance the excellent image of Paper Money built up by Mr. Bieciuk and his associates. BARBARA R.

Edward Bates, President Lincoln's War Time Attorney General By Fred R. Marckhoff Portrait of Edward Bates, 1793-1869. $5 Union Military Bond, Jefferson City, Missouri, 1883. Edward Bates was born in Virginia in 1793. In 1813 he joined a volunteer militia company to help repel a threatened English attack on Norfolk, Va. He rose to the rank of sergeant in less than a year of service. On the advice of his brother, Frederick, then the Secretary of Missouri Territory, Edward went to St. Louis in 1814 and began the study of law. In 1816 he began the prac- tice of law and two years later formed a partnership with Joshua Barton, a brother of David Barton, one of the earliest Senators from Missouri. This partnership con- tinued until 1823, when Barton was killed in a duel. Bates was elected a delegate to the State Constitutional Conven- tion in 1820. In the same year he was made Attorney General of Missouri and in 1822 became a member of the legislature. By 1824 he had become a State's At- torney and was elected a member of the legislature in 1826. He also served in the legislatures of 1830 and 1834. In 1842 he re-entered the practice of law in St. Louis. He was appointed Secretary of War by President Fillmore in 1850, but declined for domestic reasons. He then became Judge of the old St. Louis Land Court in 1853. In the presidential election of 1860 Bates received 48 votes on the first ballot, but withdrew in favor of another candidate named Abraham Lincoln. After the election, Bates was offered any post he wished in Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet except that of Secretary of State. He accepted the post of Attorney General and in so doing became the first cabinet officer from a State west of the Mississippi River. Bates' influence in Lincoln's cabinet waned after disagreement with other members on several important issues, and he resigned his post in 1864. He returned to Missouri, but his health was declining rapidly and he died in 1869. This is the first identification of Mr. Bates in any numismatic journal, on the Missouri note illustrated here- with. PAGE 6 Paper Money VOL. 3, NO. 1 Complete Listing and Simplified Numbering System all series of Current Size United States Currency 1928 - 1963 $1.00 to $100.00 Copyright 1964 by WILLIAM P. DONLON, Utica, New York PREFACE The late Robert Friedberg made a tremendous contribution to the collecting of United States Currency with the publication of the First Edition of "United States Paper Money" in 1953. This excellent work and each suc- ceeding improved edition has contributed greatly to the ever increasing number of U. S. paper money collectors. The numbering system proved entirely adequate for discontinued series of large size notes. However as the many additional series of current size notes were released, the numbering system for these notes had its limita- tions. The Simplified Numbering System quickly indicates the type, denomination and series. It is designed to per- mit unlimited additions of later series. Announcement of the new issues of $1.00 and $2.00 Federal Reserve Notes was made after this numbering system had been completed. Due to the flexibility of the system, there is no problem in assigning numbers to these new series. All rights to the Donlon Simplified Numbering System are reserved. However permission is hereby granted for its use in any publication issued for the advancement of numismatic education, if proper acknowledgment is made. Written permission for use in any other manner than above stated must be obtained. It is hoped that you will like this new system of numbering current size currency and that it will prove help- ful to you. Your comments, suggestions and contributions to this work will be appreciated and acknowledged. WILLIAM P. DONLON EXPLANATION OF THE SIMPLIFIED NUMBERING SYSTEM for Current Size United States Currency One Dollar to One Hundred Dollars The Simplified Numbering System is actually a co de system and may be readily memorized. The first three digits of the number quickly identify the TYPE and DENOMINATION. The TYPE is indicated by the FIRST DIGIT of the number: 1—LEGAL TENDER NOTES 2—SILVER CERTIFICATES 3—NATIONAL CURRENCY 1929 4—FEDERAL RESERVE BANK NOTES 5—FEDERAL RESERVE NOTES 6—GOLD CERTIFICATES VOL. 3, NO. I Paper Money PAGE 7 The DENOMINATION is indicated by the SECOND and THIRD digits: 01—ONE DOLLAR NOTES 02—TWO DOLLAR NOTES 05—FIVE DOLLAR NOTES 10—TEN DOLLAR NOTES 20—TWENTY DOLLAR NOTES 50 FIFTY DOLLAR NOTES 00—ONE HUNDRED DOLLAR NOTES The SERIES is indicated by a numeral following the above three digits. For most series this consists of one digit. A suffix letter is used corresponding with the District letters, A to L, for Federal Reserve Bank Notes and Federal Reserve Notes. Reading the digits separately, as in a telephone number, will prove helpful in memorizing the number and the system: One-0-one U. S. Legal Tender, one dollar Two-0-five Silver Certificate, five dollars Three-ten 1929 National, ten dollars Four-twenty Federal Reserve Bank note, twenty dollars Five-hundred Federal Reserve note, one hundred dollars United States Notes Usually designated as LEGAL TENDER NOTES, Red Seal ONE DOLLAR NOTES, Head of Washington D No. Series Treasurer Sec. of Treas. 101-I 1928 Woods Woodin TWO DOLLAR NOTES, Head of Jefferson 02-I 928 Tate Mellon 02-2 928A Woods Mellon 02-3 928B Woods Mills 02-4 928C Julian Morgenthau 02-5 928D Julian Morgenthau 02-6 928E ,Julian Vinson 02-7 928F Julian Snyder 02-8 928G Clarke Snyder 02-9 953 Priest Humphrey 02-10 953A Priest Anderson 02-11 953B Smith Dillon 02-12 953C Granahan Dillon FIVE DOLLAR NOTES, Head of Lincoln 05-1 928 Woods Mellon 05-2 928A Woods Mills 05-3 928B Julian Morgenthau 05-4 928C Julian Morgenthau 05-5 928D Julian Vinson 05-6 928E Julian Snyder 05-7 928F Clarke Snyder 05-8 953 Priest Humphrey 05-9 953A Priest Anderson 05-10 953B Smith Dillon Silver Certificates, Blue Seal ONE DOLLAR NOTES, Head of Washington D No. Series Treasurer Sec. of Treas. 201-1 1928 Tate Mellon 201-2 I 928A Woods Mellon 201-3 1928B Woods Mills 201-4 1928C Woods Woodin 201-5 1928D Julian Woodin D No. Series Treasurer Sec. of Treas. 201-6 1928E Julian Morgenthau 201-7 1934 Julian Morgenthau 201-8 1935 Julian Morgenthau 201-9 1935A Julian Morgenthau 201-10 1935B Julian Vinson 201-1 . 1 1935C Julian Snyder 201-12W 1935D Wide Clarke Snyder 201-12N 1935D Narrow Clarke Snyder 201-13 1935E Priest Humphrey 201-14 1935F Priest Anderson 201-15 *1957 Priest Anderson 201-16 *1957A Smith Dillon 201-17 1935G Smith Dillon 201-18 *1935G Smith Dillon 201-19 *1957B Granahan Dillon 201-20 *1935H Granahan Dillon * With motto "In God We Trust" FIVE DOLLAR NOTES, Head of Lincoln 205-1 1934 Julian Morgenthau 205-2 1934A Julian Morgenthau 205-3 1934B Julian Vinson 205-4 1934C Julian Snyder 205-5 I 934D Clarke Snyder 205-6 1953 Priest Humphrey 205-7 1953A Priest Anderson 205-8 *I953B Smith Dillon * Very few have been released.

E. Jones, Reg- ister of the Treasury, and W. 0. Woods, United States Treasurer. There are two varieties. Type One issued until 1933 has two charter numbers in black. Type Two in addition to two black charter numbers also has two in brown. The numbering of uncut sheets is also different. Type One notes in uncut sheets all have the same serial number with changes in prefix letters denoting position of the note on the sheet. Type Two notes in uncut sheets have consecutive num- bers and all bear the prefix letter "A." Thanks to the foresight of Mr. George H. Blake, deceased, many of these uncut sheets bearing low serial numbers were preserved. Mr. Blake contacted many National Banks before they received their supply of this new small note and obtained several sheets of each denomination, many bearing serial Num- ber One. The late Col. Green owned hundreds of these sheets at the time of his death. Many of these were turned back to the Federal Reserve Bank, and some again found their way to banks where originally issued.

Daniel National Currency Notes issued under the Emergency Currency Act of 1908, also known as the Aldrich-Vree- land Act, are well known to collectors. They occur in the Series 1882, Second Charter Period, and Series 1902, Third Charter Period types. The usual identifying characteristics are the dates 1882-1908 or 1902-1908 on the reverse. The Emergency Currency fulfilled its destiny in a time of crisis. This is the story of the issue and the crisis. Purpose of the Issue The purpose of the Emergency Currency Act of 1908 was to provide a greater volume of currency for circu- lation when the demand increased. Periodic increases in demand for money, such as harvest season in the agricultural areas, placed a great strain on the inelastic money supply. Circulation of Legal Tender notes and Silver Certificates was limited by law, and National Currency issues by banks were limited to the amount of government bonds deposited with the Treasurer of the United States. Since banks held 80 per cent of all outstanding government bonds, there could be little increase in the volume of currency. The Panic of 1907 gave ample evidence that more money should be available for circulation in times of greater demand. The result was the Emergency Currency Act of 1908. Whereas previously only government bonds could be used to back National Currency notes, the Act of May 30, 1908, provided that commercial paper and other miscel- laneous securities could back the issue of Emergency Currency. To comply with the act, banks were required to form National Currency Associations. Each association was composed of no fewer than ten banks, each having an unimpaired capital and surplus of not less than 20 per cent of capital, and having an aggregate capital and surplus of at least $5,000,000. These currency associ- ations were to be depositories for the commercial paper and securities backing the Emergency Currency. All members of the associations were liable for redemption of the circulation. Additional circulation was limited to 75 per cent of the commercial paper and securities deposited to back it. Deposit of state, county and municipal bonds with the Treasurer of the United States was another method of obtaining additional circulation. Issue was limited to 90 per cent of face of these securities. The circulation of any bank could be withdrawn at any time by deposit of lawful money or national bank notes and the pledged securities withdrawn. Forty-five currency associations were formed and eventually currency was issued to 41 of them. Preparation of the Issue With the passage of the Emergency Currency Act the printing plates of all the banks were re-engraved to indicate the change in securities backing the notes. The new notes read, "This Note is Secured by Bonds of the United States or Other Securities." The earlier notes bore the legend, "Secured by United States Bonds Deposited with the Treasurer of the United States." In addition the dates 1882-1908 or 1902-1908 were added to the reverse of the notes to indicate the 1908 version of the two series of bank notes then current. The color of the Treasury Seal was changed to blue. Although no National Currency notes of denomination higher than $100 had been issued since 1885, the Comp- troller of the Currency was authorized to have plates prepared for notes of $10,000 with the Emergency Currency characteristics. A check by the engraving division of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, how- ever, failed to find any indication that a request was ever made for the preparation of a design or die for National Currency in a $10,000 denomination. To meet the demand for currency under the act, in- complete notes of every bank, to the extent of 50 per cent of capital, were printed and held in the vaults of the Comptroller of the Currency. On December 2, 1912, the aggregate amounted to $539,164,590. Circulation Problems So the Emergency Currency was ready for the banks. The new style notes were put into regular circulation as the banks called for their regular supply of notes, but no bank asked for any notes under the new act. The rate of interest on the emergency issue was so high banks feared risk of their credit and were unwilling to ask for the currency. In addition, authorization of Emergency Currency was not permitted unless the Secretary of the Treasury judged the situation in the nation at large, or a specific locality, was serious enough to warrant it. Under the law, the banks were required to pay five per cent per annum interest for the first month of the issue, the rate increasing at the rate of one percent per month. At the end of five months the banks would he paying nine per cent interest. This was a far cry from the rate charged for regular issues. Under the Act of March 14, 1900, the tax on circulation, based on two per cent bonds, was set at one half per cent per annum. This too had been a measure to place more money in circulation. The high rates called for by the Act of 1908 were to ensure retirement of the emergency circulation as quickly as possible. The National Bank Act providing for the issue of National Currency had been a Civil War measure to provide for the sale of government bonds. Following the war the redemption of the bonds and the high prices VOL. 3, NO. 1 Paper Money PAGE 17 of longer date bonds forced withdrawal of much of the bank circulation. In fact many banks went out of busi- ness. Circulation fell to a low point in 1891, approxi- mately $167,000,000. The Act of March 14, 1900, coupled with revival of business, caused considerable increase in national bank circulation. The act also provided for issue of currency up to 100 per cent of the bonds deposited, rather than the 90 per cent under the previous law. Circulation of National Currency notes rose from $265,303,018 on June 29, 1900, to $722,554,719 on June 30, 1914, all of it secured by United States bonds. The high cost of emergency circulation was eased somewhat by the passage of the Federal Reserve Act of December 23, 1913. The interest rate charged to banks was lowered to three per cent per annum for the first three months and then increased one half per cent per month to a maximum of six per cent. With the outbreak of war in Europe in 1914, New York banks faced a crisis. Export of gold and sale of United States securities by foreign accounts put a serious strain on their reserves. By August 1, the situation was acute. Issuance of Emergency Currency under the Act of May 30, 1908, as amended by the Federal Reserve Act, provided the quickest relief possible. On August 3, the Treasury announced $100,000,000 was available immedi- ately to New York banks. Additional currency was also made available to other banks throughout the nation to the extent provided by law and their requirements. On August 4, Congress further amended the act to permit banks to issue circulation up to 125 per cent of capital surplus, and to remove the ceiling of $500,000,000 previously placed on the issue. Although prior to August 4, 1914, no currency had been issued under the act of 1908, the amount issued and shipped reached $369,558,040 by October 31. The last shipment of Emergency Currency was made on February 12, 1915. The total emergency issue was $382,502,645. According to an Annual Report of the Comptroller of the Currency, all of the Emergency Currency had been redeemed by July 1, 1915, with the exception of $200,000 issued to the First National Bank of Union- town, Pennsylvania, which had failed. This too was redeemed by December 1, completing redemption with- out loss. Withdrawal of the Issue Withdrawal of the issue was made through the Na- tional Currency Redemption Bureau. Used currency was returned to the Bureau where it was sorted according to banks. Damaged and worn notes were destroyed and those in better condition were returned to banks of issue. Periodically, usually about every two or three weeks, notes of a bank were destroyed; and from one to three days later a like amount of new notes would be shipped to the bank of issue. In this fashion the issue of each bank was held in balance. When the emergency issue was to be recalled, disposal of worn notes was made as usual; but fewer notes were issued to the bank until its circulation fell to its normal amount. There is some indication in the National Currency and Bond Ledgers that some of the Emergency Currency was not withdrawn until after the date cited by the Comp- troller of the Currency. But this does not dispute the immediate and quick withdrawal of the issue. Part of the emergency issue never saw circulation. It was returned unissued by the banks and replaced in the vaults as reserve for future issue. During the 1914 crisis, Emergency Currency was issued to 41 of the 45 national currency associations formed to guarantee the miscellaneous securities backing the issue. Many banks required no additional circula- tion; and no Emergency Currency was issued in the states of Maine, Vermont, Rhode Island. Delaware, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and Nevada. There was an emergency issue in the District of Columbia. The number of banks receiving Emergency Currency was limited. Of the 149 national banks in North Dakota only one was authorized to receive it. So while notes bearing the inscription of the possi- bility of security other than by government bonds were in regular circulation from 1908 to 1916, the only actual emission of Emergency Currency was between August 4, 1914, and February 12, 1915, and all of it was withdrawn by December, 1915. The Emergency Currency Act of 1908 was due to expire on May 30, 1915, but was extended one year and expired May 30, 1916. With the expiration of the Act of 1908, the Federal Reserve System became responsible for maintaining the required level of circulation. This was one of the pur- poses for which the system was established in 1913. Changes in Design With the discontinuance of the eligibility of secur- ities other than United States bonds as backing for Na- tional Currency, there was another style change in the notes. The dates 1882-1908 and 1902-1908 were removed from the reverses. The 1882 series notes became the denominational reverse types, and the 1902 series only dropped the dates, reverting to the first type reverse. The blue seal was retained. The stocks of surplus Emergency Currency notes still in the vaults were issued to the banks as needed, so issue of the new style came only after stocks were depleted. While the statement of security on the face of the notes was changed for all banks with the passage of the Act of 1908, not all banks returned to the original word- ing. The banks had to pay the cost of engraving plates, so many banks continued to use the 1908 type obverse with the plain reverse. Undoubtedly many banks issued notes with both types of security notations between 1916 and 1929. A pair of such notes on the same bank would be an interesting addition to a collection. Conclusion In conclusion, a speculation is offered. The flood of Emergency Currency was withdrawn in less than a year. The National Currency Redemption Bureau would have withheld any notes of a given bank to redeem actual emergency issue. In this manner many red seal notes of the 1902 issue and brown back notes of the 1882 series would have been destroyed, even though their con- dition was good. The scarcity of brown back and red seal notes may be due as much to this withdrawal as to wear and tear of time. (CONTINUED ON PAGE 21.) PAGE 18 Paper Money VOL. 3, NO.

Gould A number of years ago I catalogued and appraised the famous emergency and revolutionary money of the world, compiled by Allan Forbes of Boston, Massachu- setts. He was one of the country's best known bankers and had access to material from all parts of the world. One of the small series which he had represented was the Shin-Plasters of Wisconsin that were used during the Civil War. As I have never seen this series listed, I think that a tentative listing will bring other pieces out of hiding and help in a fairly comprehensive compilation.

With the increase of collectors and the corresponding increase in cost it becomes difficult for any one collector to obtain enough notes from a state to do anything like a near-complete descriptive listing of notes. If it were possible, it would perhaps take a gen- eration to do so. This would still not indicate the rarity of the notes until other collections were taken into ac- count. The SOPMC should be a clearing house for in- formation. May I make the following Call for Kentucky? 1. Collectors, dealers and curators, please send a list of all Kentucky State Bank and scrip notes in your col- lection, stock or museum. If more than one note alike, tell how many. (All information will be kept confidential as to ownership, if requested.) State if you are willing to furnish photos, or notes for photographing of those needed for information or illustration. 2. List any known histories of Kentucky banks, or early banking in Kentucky which could be borrowed for study. Remember the motto of Kentucky, "United We Stand, Divided We Fall."
