DICKERSON N 5 NOVEMBER 1974 the Banque de France began issuing a new 10 Franc note, to circulate for the present alongside the older Voltaire design. A one- page communique issued by the Banque the previous day 1 provides information about the new issue. The note, shown in the accompanying figures, portrays the French composer Hector Berlioz. On the obverse he di- rects an orchestra in the Chapel of the Invalides in Paris, at the first performance of his Requiem on 5 December 1837. On the reverse he holds the guitar given him by Paganini, against a background of the Villa Medici, with the outlines of the Castle of St. Angelo and Basilica of St. Peter in Rome visible on the horizon. The por- trait of Berlioz is printed a Videntique, with overlapping registration on front and back, as a protection against counterfeiting. The watermark is of Berlioz in profile. The composer's name appears below his sleeve on the obverse, marking the first time that a French banknote has ever specifically named the person portrayed. The note is printed in tones of red and brown, without the use of engraving to highlight details of the obverse de- sign as has become common on French notes since World War II. With outside dimensions of 75 x 140mm. it is smaller than the Voltaire 10 Franc note, but the same size as the Pasteur 5 Franc which ceased to be legal tender on 1 November 1972. (The 5 Franc bank- note was replaced by a nickel coin.) Although the Banque has announced nothing on the subject, there are suggestions that the Berlioz note may be the beginning of a new uniform series of French banknote designs, as has been suggested earlier 2 . After many years of irregular and uncorrelated note issues, the Banque began a uniform series in 1953, in which the note size rose with denomination but the over- all proportions were constant. This series portrayed famous Frenchmen: Victor Hugo (500 F and 5 NF) , PACE 56 Paper Money WHOLE NO. 56 Cardinal Richelieu (1000 F and 10 NF), Henri IV (5000 F and 50 NF), Napoleon Bonaparte (10,000 F and 100 NF) , and Moliere (only as the 500 NF). All of these banknotes were polychrome printing with a final engraved highlight plate on the obverse only, and on all of them the face of the principal personage was printed a l'identique on front and back. After a decade of use, including the New Franc cur- rency reform of 1959, this series was gradually replaced by another, portraying French writers in the fields of science, philosophy, and literature: Pasteur (5 F , Voltaire (10 F), Racine (50 F), Corneille (100 F) and Pascal (500 F) . Each note was the same size as its predecessor, but engraving was omitted from the low- value 5 Franc note. Now, after roughly another decade, the 5 Franc is abandoned as a banknote denomination; and a new 10 Franc note appears in the old 5 Franc size and similarly without engraving. One might predict that the Banque de France has decided upon a new series, dropping the 5 Franc from the bottom and replacing it with a 1000 Franc note at the top, and decreasing each banknote in size by one step. If this is so, then in the next few years we can expect to see the familiar five banknote sizes, but in denominations of 10 F, 50 F, 100 F, 500 F, and 1000 F, gradually replacing the current notes. Adding a 1000 F would restore the original and classic French banknote denomination which began with the Banque de France in 1800. One would hope that, as at present, only the lowest denomination would lack en- graving, and it would be interesting if the theme for this new series was one of famous French composers. As unsolicited suggestions for the other denominations, the Banque might consider Rameau or F. Couperin, Saint-Saens, Debussy or Ravel, and Darius Milhaud. The artist for the new banknote is Fontanarosa, who also contributed the gloomy Pascal 500 F which is cir- culating now. On both notes, Fontanarosa's style of feathery shading in the portrait, and pen and ink sketch style in the background, is in sharp contrast to the pre- cise draftsmanship of the 5 F and 50 F by Lambert, or the old 10 F and 100 F by Le Feuvre.

A good example of this technique is the beautiful design by the National Bank Note Company for the Bank of Sparta, Wisconsin in the 11360's. The amount in both figures and words is written over printed fine lines which appear gray. Any erasure in these areas would automatically show as a white spot. The subtle feature is contained in what at first appears to be just an ornate border, but is actually a series of round- dollar amounts from $10 through $90,000. The maker of the check simply punched out the amount in the border which set his maximum liability.

MUSCALUS Copyright 1975 LTHOUGH vignettes of paintings of the great mas- ters of art beautify bank notes, identification of paintings is not difficult when the entire painting was reproduced on notes. However, sometimes only a detail from a great painting was used on notes and conse- quently the identity of the painting has gone unreco- nized for many years. Such is the case with Leonardo da Vinci's "Madonna of the Rocks" of which only the angel was used on bank notes and railroad notes. Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was a great universal genius whose abilities were superior in a number of areas: art, music, sculpture, invention, engineering, the natural and physical sciences, etc. Those great talents are all the more interesting because he was born in Vinci in 1452 to an unmarried ordinary peasant girl and a father who was a notary to wealthy families. Never- theless he was raised in his father's home and his talents provided for. The father showed Leonardo's art work to Andrea del Verrocchio, a famous Florentine painter and sculptor known today for his "David." "General Colleoni," "Madonna and Child," etc. Verrocchio was satisfied that Leonardo was worthy of an apprenticeship in his studio. During that apprenticeship Leonardo worked with him on the painting of "The Baptism of Christ." Around 1482, Leonardo entered the court of Ludovico Sforza of Milan where he served until 1499. During that time he was given a variety of assignments, of which a major one was to sculpt an equestrian statue of Ludovico's father. Although the model of the statue IN as completed, it was never cast due to numerous inter- ruptions caused by other assignments. While in Milan, Leonardo painted "The Virgin of the Rocks" and "The Last Supper." The latter was painted on the wall of the Convent of the Santa Maria della Grazie. Leonardo also founded an academy in which Andrea del Sarto and Beltraffio were students. It was around 1503 or so that he began painting the world-renowned "Mona Lisa" which was purchased by Francis I of France for some 4000 gold florins but even- tually became one of the most prized possessions of the Louvre. In 1516, Francis I gave him a yearly pension and the use of the Chateaux Cloux. Leonardo died there in 1519. There exists much contradictory data among the bi- ographies of Leonardo da Vinci; even the alphabetical listing of his name differs. Consequently, one must be aware that such contradictions exists regarding times and places of his numerous travels and paintings. Turning now to the painting on the notes, that is, "Madonna of the Rocks," there are two versions of it. The first was commissioned as an altarpiece in 1433 for the Brotherhood of the Immaculate Conception in Milan. It was finished in 1485 or so and was entirely the work of Leonardo and is now in the Louvre. The angel is very typical of Leonardo's masterly technique. It is this detail that was copied by the hank note engravers. The second version is now in the National Gallery of London. It was begun by Leonardo and Ambrogio de INTefft,.

Later it was acquired by the National Gallery in 1880. In the painting, the angel is looking out toward the viewers. It is said to be the first painting to have one of the subjects looking out of the picture. However, the bank note vignette portrays the angel facing in the oppo- site direction as if it were a mirror image of the original. Also, the angel was adorned by the engraver with a diadem consisting of a circlet of stars, which is pre- sumably his way of indicating that the subject is some- one very special, just as the halo indicates in religious art.

Brett has called our attention to the use of the term "synagraphics" in the printing indus- try. It is actually the name of a concern involved in the business of printing. The headline of their adver- tisement in a recent trade journal reads "Signode/ Synagraphics bundling system," with the first word in- dicated as a registered trademark. It is followed by "Signode Corporation, in cooperation with Synagraphics. has developed". . . etc. So perhaps our spanking new word for paper money—syngraphics—is not quite unique.

K. Narain, Editor APER MONEY has been known to India for many centuries. Business houses had their transactions by means of an instrument which was known as Hundi. It was not strictly in the modern sense, a bank note; rather it was a kind of bill of exchange or bank draft; but it served very much the purpose of the bank notes. Any one could deposit money with a business house and obtain a hundi drawn over some other business house in any other town drawn in favour of himself or his nominee. On presentation of this instrument, the drawee had the obligation to make payment of the money to the person in whose favour it was drawn. This instru- ment was transferable and non-transferable both. Trans- ferable Hundies could change hands before being pre- sented to drawee for encashment. Till recently, the money transfers were made by this mode; and it was taken to be quite convenient. But with the expansion of the bank- ing facilities on the modern lines, this system has now almost disappeared. Early Private Banks In the modern sense, paper money began in India to- wards the end of the eighteenth century. A private bank, the Bank of Hindostan by name, was established in 1770 on the modern lines. It issued the first notes, the circul- ation of which was confined entirely to Calcutta and the immediate neighbourhood.

Ellsworth Swift IN a conversation with Mr. Louis Van Belkum III anumber of years ago. Louis stated that he had never had the pleasure of seeing, let alone hearing about a last National Bank Note or sheet of Nationals, of any series, from any National Bank that issued. Mr. Van Belkum had further stated that conversely, there are quite a few number one notes and number one sheets, representing the first note or notes of a bank. This piqued my interest in finding a note or sheet that would fit this category. As originally indicated by Mr. Van Belkum's statement, they are indeed rare. Having been a collector of Nebraska Nationals for about eight years, and having looked at many hundreds of Nebraska Nationals, it was a distinct pleasure to ac- quire, in the summer of 1974, a $10 third charter plain back note from The First National Bank of Randolph, Nebraska, charter #7421. The note, pictured here, is the last large-size $10 note issued by this hank. The First National Bank of Randolph, Nebraska was chartered in October of 1904, and was placed in volun- tary liquidation on June 29, 1935. CIRCULATION ISSUED: LARGE-SIZE Third charter, RED SEALS 10-10-10-20 plate 612 sheets numbered 1 to 612 Third charter, DATE BACK 10-10-10-20 plate 2600 sheets numbered 1 to 2600 Third charter, PLAIN BACK BLUE SEAL 10-10-10-20 plate 4022 sheets numbered 2601 to 6622 A question which arises is: What was the rule fol- lowed, if there was a rule, on assigning plate position letters to sheets of a bank in the various charter periods? My theory on the third charter notes of Ch. #7421 is illustrated in the chart shown here. The RED SEALS started out with plate positions A- B-C-A, because this was a newly chartered hank. When the bank started issuing third charter DATE BACKS four years later, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing again used plate positions A-B-C-A because these notes were Aldrich-Vreeland "emergency currency" notes and, hence start back again with A-B-C-A. 10 A 10 A 1 0 D 10 B 10 B 10 E 10 C 1 0 C 10 F 20 A 2 0 A 20 B When the PLAIN BACK BLUE SEAL notes were printed, the BEP used plate positions which continued on with the letter series started with the DATE BACKS; therefore the position letters on the PLAIN BACKS were D-E-F-B. This is also indicated by the reversion of the sheet serial numbers after the RED SEALS to #1 on the DATE BACKS and the continuation of the serial numbers into the PLAIN BACK issue. The foregoing leads me to conclude and to state that the note here pictured, plate position "F," serial # 6622, is in fact from the bank's last large-size sheet and is, in fact, the last large-size $10 note issued by the First Na- tional Bank of Randolph, Nebraska. This note is signed by H. C. Bierwirth as cashier and F. S. Stegge as vice-president. These men were in their respective offices simultaneously from 1928 through 1932. No More Smoke From Hot Money (From the Atlanta Journal and Constitution, Dec. 8, 1974, submitted by Chas. J. Brockman, Jr.) : San Francisco (UPI)—The burning of dirty money by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco will no longer foul the air. The bank said that this weekend a special filter would be installed on its incinerator that would cut down the pollution by more than 90 per cent. In an average working day the bank burns $3 million in bills which have become dirty and worn. The Bay Area Air Pollution Control District recently cited the bank for periodic emission problems. T. lete—'11:42441 . /At- -4 .44oumax,4, E 814818048 B ox‘wit..c.06,,,,Aut• 5 PAGE 64 Paper Money WHOLE NO. 56 Federal Reserve Corner TT CAN NOW be reported that two, yes two, additional copies of double-printed notes have been reported and confirmed. The first one is from the Richmond district, Series 1969D. The two face plates are 695 and 727; the note is from position A 3. If you will refer to this column in PM No. 52, page 157, a photo of the St. Louis double-print will be found. That note was from plates 797 and 801 from position E 1. If you compare the photo of that note with the one in this column, you will observe that the doubling appears to have been to the right on the St. Louis note and to the left on the Richmond note. This new note is the property of Mr. Frank Greenberg of Pennsylvania; he obtained it at a Maryland show about a year ago. We appreciate his sharing this nice item with us. Note that both of these notes are 100% doubled on the face printing (the over- printing. of course. is not doubled). I can now confirm a third double note, but this one is different in two respects. First, the doubling is only about 90%, with the bottom 10% of the note being only singly printed. Second, the same plate 6 printed both impressions and the note is Series 1974! This note is also from the Richmond district and bears serial E 04250291 A and is position E 3. It is interesting to note on this item that the signatures are both doubled. while the titles are not 1 as they are in the ten percent area not doubled). So. we do have a little different item here than the 100% doubled notes. and we can try to guess how this note happened. The best estimate that I can come up with is that this partial impression was made as the press came to a stop during the printing process. As the press stopped, this partial sheet was printed and the ink dried during this period of "down time." As the press was started back up, the sheet was shifted back enough to give a complete impression of this row of notes by the same printing plate. It is also possible that the sheet was removed from the press during the down time and was in error placed back on the pile of unprinted sheets and was thus fed back into the press when it started up. It could just be sheer coincidence that the same plate 6 printed both impressions. There should be other notes from both of these sheets, and it would be wise to watch closely for them. Where no other notes turned up from the St. Louis double-print, it is possible that others from either or both of these sheets will turn up? All reports appreciated. This last error note was reported by Ed Zegers of Maryland, and was found by a friend. (See Ed's article herein also.) We still have not had any confirmed reports of Series 1974 $1 notes from Minneapolis. I have had two reports of circulated copies, but none have come from banks in new condition. It is felt that the Ser. 1969B I—* notes will be found in the 74s and in adequate numbers to take care of the needs of all collectors. Do not pay crazy prices for this item, as it will be available . . . trust me! Keep your reports coming along, and thanks for your many favorable comments. Until next time ... Adios! NATHAN GOLDSTEIN II P. 0. Box 36 Greenville, Miss. 38701 Double Face Impression Error On 1974 Federal Reserve Note By ED ZEGERS Recently I have been fortunate enough to have seen and had photographed a new error of the current 1974 $1 Federal Reserve Note series. This error note is simi- lar to that which is displayed on the cover of the new 11th edition of the Hewitt-Donlon Catalog of United States Small Size Paper Money. No other examples of this type error are known to exist at this time. The note is in crisp uncirculated condition. It is from the Richmond district and has serial number E04250291A. Its plate position is E3. The first print- ing of the face plate serial number was E6, as was the second printing. It is most unusual for the same note to have passed through the printing press twice, but even more unusual for the same face plate to have been printed. The double printing stops just below the signatures on the note and just over the bottom border which is not doubled. Some traces of doubling are evident through the "ONE DOLLAR" beneath the portrait. The reverse is normal.

MUELLER RITING IN PAPER MONEY No. 52, July 1974, Gene Hessler described the Three Year $100 Interest Bearing Note issued under the Act of July 17, 1861 and listed as unknown in all references. He was able to illustrate it from a drawing published in Harper's New Monthly Magazine for February, 1862. The Mayflower Coin Auctions firm of Boston. Mass.. subsequently offered at their sale of Nov. 15-16, 1974 a complete proof specimen of the obverse only with all five coupons attached. Described as probably unique. with several closed tears at the top and estimated to have a value of $3,000, it sold for the amazing price of $10,000. Now comes the "shocker" in this story: While clean- ing out "dead" files recently, I came across an undated letter from one of our pioneer SPMC members con- taining the photograph shown here. I have no further information about the present whereabouts of this note. The member who submitted the photograph wrote that all the coupons are detached, with the third and fourth missing altogether. My apologies to all concerned for having failed to re- port this important matter much sooner. But now we know that the unknown does exist. PAGE 66 Paper Money WHOLE NO. 56 Necessity Currency of the Dakota Frontier Coupon Books and Due Bills By FORREST W. DANIEL OUPON BOOKS of scrip good for merchandise at the company stores of a number of mining, lumber and other enterprises have been popular items with collectors of scrip. But coupon books also served pio- neer settlements on the northern plains of the United States. Their greatest use there was 50 or more years ago, so few examples remain for collectors, and they are prime finds for local historians. Use of coupon books and due bills by independent merchants in scattered agricultural communities may have had some variations which were not prevalent in the closely controlled communities served by company stores. This will be a loosely constructed story of com- munities in North Dakota where they served for many years as substitutes for coin and currency; the pattern was general over a vast area. The settlers who came to the northern plains from the 1880s to World War I were not the classic frontiersmen and trailbreakers; they were sod busters and merchants, their settlements following the extension of the railroad lines. Railroad and private land agents recruited land seekers among farmers unable to find land to rent in the hills of Missouri; farm laborers from Iowa, Illinois and Indiana; industrial workers from the East; people of every type and from everywhere who wanted to own land of their own. Advertisements brought immigrants from Scandinavia, Germany, and Great Britain plus thousands of Germans from Russia. Young lawyers from Pennsylvania and other eastern states headed west to start practice in the new towns which were springing up every seven miles along the railroad lines. Typically, the young attorney found ten lawyers ahead of him in a town of fewer than 200 people. Often he joined the trek to a newer town down the line and established a mercantile business or news- paper to supplement his legal fees; with the proper connections he might be appointed federal land commis- sioner to record homestead filings and the final proving- up. The principal thing most of these people had in common was a shortage of cash. Few had bank ac- counts, and personal checks were rare; a large percentage of substantial purchases were covered by promissory notes of questionable negotiability. Many of the everyday small transactions in the towns were consummated by barter. A weekly newspaper edi- tor often saw little more cash in a year than he needed to pay for newsprint, paper and ink; subscriptions were paid with chickens, eggs, butter, potatoes and other garden truck, in fact any kind of goods or services he could use—and some he didn't need. Barter at the General Store THE general store served as the outlet for local pro-duce. Farmers' wives exchanged their surplus butter and eggs for coffee, sugar, dry goods and other necessities. But there was work to be done before the price was set for the produce. The eggs had to be counted and candled to make sure they were fresh and not cracked. Candling consisted of looking through the eggs at a candle, kerosene lamp or light bulb in a light- tight container with two egg-size openings. Spoiled and cracked eggs were easy to spot; they were returned to the seller, with the greatest diplomacy. Home-made butter was usually packed in five- or ten- pound jars and a deposit and exchange system for the jars was common for those who bought the entire con- tainer. The quality of the butter varied greatly with the maker, and the merchant always kept the best for himself and favored customers. The other butter was placed on display for sale; the customer had to rely on smell and taste to make his choice; a supply of tooth- picks was at hand to use for the taste test. Only a pound or two might be bought if the customer had any doubts. Usually there was some butter no one would buy; that rancid butter was emptied into 50-gallon vats for the purpose and when filled were shipped to a city creamery to be refined into saleable creamery butter. Just how much butter was brought in to country stores can only be guessed, but M. E. Kremer & Co. opened a general store in Sykeston, North Dakota, on October 28, 1907, and the local newspaper reported that 5,000 pounds of butter were shipped on January 23, 1908. That may or may not have been typical. Other produce might be bought in season. In March. 1914, Kremer advertised that he was shipping several cars of early Ohio potatoes and offered 50 cents a bushel for nicely sorted stock. The merchant usually took the produce on the condi- tion that the entire amount paid would be traded out in his store. Payment for these purchases could be made in several ways. The simplest was to apply the amount to the person's account if he had running credit at the store. If the amount due the customer was substantially more than his purchase and he had no charge account, he might receive a due bill, a duplicate printed form to be filled out with the date, name of customer and the amount due him. A sales slip often served that purpose. The due bill, then, could be presented at the store for future purchases. For smaller amounts it was more convenient to use metal tokens good for 50, 100, 250, 500 or $1.00 in merchandise at the store. Those tokens WHOLE NO. 56 Paper Money PAGE 67 were also called due bills by M. E. Kremer, in recalling their use. The metal due bills had an additional advan- tage to the person who received them; often they could be used in place of coins at the barber shop, blacksmith shop or post office; proprietors of those places could trade them out at the store. Stores which had coupon books were able to use them in several ways. They could be used in place of due bills: by removing some of the coupons they could be made to represent the amount due and issued to the customer. Since they were more substantial than a single sheet of paper, coupon hooks were less likely to be lost than a due bill. Coupon books sold for cash usually went at a five percent discount, providing reduced prices for those who paid in advance. Coupon books were made in several denominations at $5.00 increments so they were available even to people of limited means. In an advertisement in the Sykeston Tribune of March 1, 1912, the M. E. Kremer & Co. and R. & S. H. Wikey stores advertised their coupon hooks at ten percent discounts, stating that they were good for any merchandise they carried except flour, feed and sugar. In an era when many settled formers paid their ac- counts only once a year—after the fall harvest—dis- agreements about the amount involved were not uncom- mon. Use of coupon books was a convenient method for controlling credit, as the first page of each book was a promissory note form for the amount of coupons in the book. Properly filled in, that note was an accurate register of the amount of credit advanced and a legal obligation to pay; the note drew interest after maturity, usually 12 percent as stated in the advertisement. The back of the book contained one or more pages where the merchant could register all purchases; it told both customer and merchant how carefully the credit was being used. When the coupon book was sold for cash or issued in place of a due bill, the note form was re- moved and destroyed; the nosy neighbor, then, might suspect but could not be sure whether the user was a cash or credit customer. $20.00 No_ .. days after date promise to pay to the .order of Twenty Dollars. Interest after maturit y value received. A simple form of promissory note was included in each coupon book for use when the book was sold on credit. But coupon books did not prevent all physical disa- greements about credit, and an incident of that kind happened at Dell's Store.

With few roads and only horse and wagon transportation for many it was at least a full days trip to town and back. To take care of their neighbors' immediate needs for groceries, light hardware and sundry items, some farmers established stores in their homes. These stores often became rural post offices, social centers, and sometimes attracted other businesses to the neighborhood and grew to a point where they believed that if a branch railroad were built to the community its growth into a metropolitan center would be assured. Fight at Dell's. Store IN 1899, Henry Dell, a storekeeper from South Dakota,bought land 22 miles southwest of Sykeston. It was some time before he got his farm established and a home built over a partial dugout in a hillside. In November 1906, the newspaper announced he had established a general store at his home; it was 15 miles south of the nearest railroad town, Heaton. He sold farm machinery, groceries, dry goods, clothing, kerosene, and bought and sold butter. A rural post office was established in the store from May 27 to November 7, 1907, with a daughter, Martha Dell, as postmaster. Dell's Store used coupon books. The summer of 1910 was hot and dry, and by the middle of July it was clear that there would be a small harvest of grain and money would be scarce—the not- uncommon prospect of "no crop, no pay." When Henry Dell decided it was time to curtail credit, he had little idea of what would ensue; the gory results were reported in the Sykeston Tribune of July 22 under the head, "BAD FIGHT." 2.50 01) this page. $5.00 on this page.

A knife and a hatchet played important parts. J. H. Laursen and Henry Dell were the principals. We do not know particulars, but as reported to us, Dell had sold Laursen a coupon book and taken the latter's note in payment of same. Now on account of dry weather Dell refused to let Laursen buy any more goods using the coupon book. This led to a hot discussion and Dell ordered Laursen from the store and when the latter refused to go Dell attempted to put him out. Our informant said that Laursen drew his pocket knife and that Dell grabbed a hatchet. In the scuffle that followed Laursen got the hatchet away from Dell and struck him over the head cutting a big gash and for a time it was thought that Dell would not live. but the injury did not prove as serious as at first thought and Dell is around once more. Laursen got a small cut on the face and on the shoulder. Laursen went to Steele to get a warrant for the arrest of Dell but we have not heard how the matter was disposed of." No further mention of the incident was found in the newspaper. Dell's store re- mained open until about 1917. Mechanics of the Currency COUPON BOOKS were available with the name ofthe merchant imprinted on the cover and the tickets or they could be bought in blank, with spaces for the store keeper to enter his own identifica- tion and numbers. J. K. Swan. Fessenden, used both kinds; his $5.00 book hears his imprint and appears to be the earlier. Hamilton's Trade Coupons were printed by Geo. D. Hamilton. Detroit, Minnesota, five coupons to the page as was usual. Swan's book No. 422 contains four pages of 10, three pages of 20, five pages of 50, four pages of 100 and one page of 25-cent coupons; the name J K SWAN appears on the back of each. The lettering on the Hamilton coupons appears to have been hand-drawn for lithography, varying in size from de- nomination to denomination. The 25-cent coupons have a typographical error: the N in "Not good if detached" is drawn backwards. Swan also used Allison's Improved Credit Coupon Check Book printed by Allison Coupon Company, Indianapolis, Indiana. in $20.00 denomination. It was copyrighted by N. S. Allison in 1888. but the ones sur- viving were printed after 1900. In this case the book is in blank; imprinted books and checks would have been more expensive. How he validated them for use is unknown. Swan may have used books with other values too, but none are known. The coupons in the Allison book are printed with blue ink and have the value of the five tickets on each page printed on the stub at the top. The $20.00 hook has two pages of $1.00 coupons, two of 500, two of 250, two of 10t, four of 50, three of 20, and four of 10, a promissory note in front and four pages for entering purchases in the back. As usual each coupon value has a different color. The book size is 68 x 127mm., while the Hamilton book is 67 x 134mm. J. K. Swan was born in England in 1846 and grew up in Dubuque, Iowa.

Coupon books, of whatever merchant, were issued to a specific person whose name was written on the cover and were not transferrable. Coupons were payable only in merchandise and only if removed from the book by an authorized clerk in the store. Patrons were admonished always to bring the book with them, and were warned not to lose them since the book was the same as cash. Settlers eventually filled all the open land, the popula- tion stabilized, and the economy grew to a state where money circulated to a greater extent. As times changed due bills, coupon books and later the metal due bills passed from use except in a few localities where they may still fill some special need.

The position of this bank was very sound. It met prompt- ly and successfully two severe runs upon it—one in 1819 and the other in 1829. In 1819 some forgeries of the Bank's notes came to light and the Bank thought it wise to issue notice to the public pointing out how to distin- guish the genuine from the forged notes. But some mis- chief-monger gave the Bank's notice a false character and spread the rumour among the people that the notes would be cashable only if they were brought back to the Bank within a certain date. Consequently there was an immediate rush which brought back nearly all the notes in circulation, which were about 18 lacs. The reason for the 1829 run was the failure of an important trading concern, Messrs. Palmer Sz Co; and this time notes of the value of 20 lacs were cashed. The Bank was closed in 1831. Very few of its notes were in circulation at the time of its failure. Another bank, which issued paper currency in the eighteenth century, was the Bengal Bank. 1 When exactly it was founded is not known; but it is found mentioned as an out-going concern in 1790. It had issued its notes in 1791; but any detail about their circulation is not available to me. In the beginning of the nineteenth century Lord William Bentinck, the Governor of Madras, established a bank named Government Bank of Madras. It issued notes; but they were more like treasury bills, by which Government raised funds. They were expressed in amounts which were too large to call the bills a, popular form of currency. They bore interest and were inconvertible, and circulated only at discount. Yet at that time they were accepted as paper currency.

The Boone County Bank - the Little Bank That Almost Did ! MANY banks in Indiana during the freewheelingdays of free banking of the 1850's and 1860's found ways to bend, twist, and even occasionally break the laws regarding the regulation of their business. One of the most novel approaches to larceny was that taken by the Boone County Bank of Lebanon, Indiana. The Free Banking Act of 1852, once amended in 1855, stated that (the italics are the author's) : "Nothing herein contained shall be so construed as to prevent any banking association from procuring their own plates, dies and other 'materials for engraving and printing blank notes, and furnishing them to the auditor." That sounds innocent enough. right? Wrong! The officers of the bank placed an order for $289,000 worth of notes to be printed by W. L. Ormsby of New York. They also requested that these notes be forwarded to A. W. Spooner, President of the Boone County Bank, who would in turn forward them to the State Auditor. The plates were sent directly to the State Auditor via Adams Express. Here the plot thickens! As soon as the box of notes arrived in Lebanon from the printer, the bank officers removed $235.000 in notes as well as Ormsby's affidavit attesting to the fact that he had printed and delivered $289,000 in notes. They then substituted a FORGED affidavit which stated that only $54.000 had been printed and delivered. Mr. Spooner then sealed up the remaining $54.000 in notes along with this false affidavit and set out for Indianapolis to proudly deliver them to the State Auditor. This. of course. left the bank with almost a quarter million dollars which it could circulate without restriction. All that was needed were the forged signatures of the State Auditor and Register. Ironically, the Boone County Bank only managed to circulate about $10,000 of its ill-gotten gain before it collapsed under the onslaught of a bank run. The run resulted because the bank had great difficulty in circu- lating the LEGITIMATE $54,000 which it had placed with the State Auditor. Public concern over the bank's lack of means quickly turned to panic and the state was forced to close the bank and sell its bonds, which were put up as security. The proceeds of the bond sales were, by the way, adequate to pay off all legitimate notes of the bank at par. Only at this point did the state dis- cover the thousands of notes ready to be put into circula- tion illegally. Needless to say, the hank's closing in 1860 was made permanent. The end result of this intrigue? In 1861, the legisla- ture approved an amendment to the third section of the Free Banking Act of 1852 (1855 amended version) so that it read as follows (again the italics are mine) : "Nothing herein contained shall be so construed as to prevent any banking association from procuring, threugh the Auditor of State, their own plates, dies, and other materials for engraving and printing blank bank notes: Provided, That said plates, dies, and other mate- rials shall never pass into the possession of any such banking association, but shall be and remain in the possession and under the control of the Treasurer of State." Another loophole closed! There is one interesting modern-day mystery. Many notes of the Boone County Bank found today have two small slit cancellations and a small black rubberstamped "A" on their reverses. What significance these have is unknown, although they may have been used to identify the unlawful notes which were stolen by the Boone County Bank officers.

F ALL THE banking institutions which have existed in our country's history. The Freedman's Savings and Trust Co.. generally known as the Freedmen's (sic) Savings Bank, has to be unique. In its short life of less than ten years, it had over 61,000 depositors with over $3.250,000 in their accounts. Almost all of these depositors were former slaves. The bank was their bank, founded by Congress with the sole intention of providing ex-slaves in this country with a secure means of invest- ing their wages. While doing this. the bank also en- deavored to educate with lessons of thrift these people who were without any financial background. The bank in its early years was closely associated with the Freedmen's Bureau, which had been created in 1865 to protect and counsel the newly freed. Few of these people had ever received wages or formal educa- tion and so were ill-prepared to meet the new life given them by emancipation. The Bureau strove to assist them in the turbulent reconstruction era. Operating out of the War Department in Washington and headed by Gen. Oliver Howard, the Bureau offered food and medicine to the destitute and education to all. The wages and working conditions of all freedmen were under its control. By 1866, it had an agent in each of the southern states. Although the school system was most successful, the corruption of many local agents overshadowed it. and the taint of "carpetbagger" often hung over both the Bureau and its auxiliary. The Freed- men's Savings Bank. The beginnings of the hank can be traced to attempts to provide Negro soldiers with a means for savings. In 1863, Lincoln had opened army enlistments to Negroes and eventually 200.000 of them served their country. Both Gen. Butler at Norfolk. Va. and Gen. Saxton at Beaufort. S. C. set up soldier's savings banks, while at New Orleans. Gen. N. P. Banks began the Free Labor Bank for the same purpose. However, an army paymaster, A. M. Sperry, and a Congregational minister. John W. Alvord. had a much grander scheme. They proposed a national bank which w ould complement the work of the Freedmen's Bureau. Their idea was well received by Congress. and on March 3. 1865, Abraham Lincoln signed the bill bringing the bank into existence. This was one of Lincoln's last acts; his assassination was only weeks away. The bank's expressed object was to receive deposits offered "by or in behalf of persons heretofore held in slavery in the U. S. or their descendents." Two-thirds of these deposits were to be invested in U. S. securities. Out of the resulting profits, the interest would be paid. The remainder of the deposits would be kept on hand to meet withdrawals. The bank was chartered in the District of Columbia because some doubted Congress' ability to charter one outside the District. Despite this, the first office was opened in New York. This was only one of several acts of doubtful legality taken by the bank without penalty. The bank was provided with a board of 50 trustees, including such prominent men as Peter Cooper. A New York banker, William A. Booth. was elected president. He was succeeded in 1868 by John Alvord, who re- mained in that position until 1874. The president and vice-president were the only paid officers. Besides this, the trustees were not personally liable. The prominence of these men guaranteed their honesty, but they did not concern themselves enough with the bank's management, ignoring it during its greatest crisis. For a time, however, the bank lived up to all expecta- tions. In July 1865, the central office in Washington was opened. By January 1866, all three of the military banks had been absorbed. The most immediate concern was now the establishment of branch banks. Agents were sent throughout the south, promoting the bank and eventually forming 34 offices. The methods used in setting up these branches brought the first criticism of the bank. The agents used Lincoln's name to draw investors and also implied that the bank was secured by the federal government. This proved to be all too false. They also mixed in politics and even religion in their efforts. Frederick Douglass in his 1875 report on the bank's condition stated that these promoters had used the "grossest deception." Like the Freedmen's Bureau, the bank, too, had its prob- lems with local employees. Furthermore, two-thirds of the deposits made in the branch banks were sent to the central office for investing in U. S. securities. Southern governments resented not only this loss of capital, but also the fact that the banks, having a national charter (albeit in the District of Columbia) were not under state control. Also, of course, race played a part in making the bank disliked by some. Despite these and other drawbacks, the bank was able to enjoy great success, not only in providing a safe and profitable investment, but also in education as to savings. The passbooks often contained pointers on thrift. Pamphlets were distributed which offered economic ad- vice. "The aim was to instill in the minds of untutored Africans lessons of sobriety, wisdom and economy." This almost missionary creed was emphasized by the fact that many of the local Negro officials were also preachers. At first there had been few qualified Negroes available to take positions in the bank. However, by 1868 the central office had begun training Negroes in banking practice. Eventually over half of the bank's employees were black. This, of course, was a source of pride and trust to its customers. Many of these men became tellers and cashiers, but their training soon proved inadequate. C4 1 ' I les t ./P - sa* )1110 iiitts. esTrtist C4)9iti):11iy.

It is signed by John Jay Knox, who as Comptroller of the Currency served as a Commissioner. Bookkeeping was not strict enough and a lack of good banking knowledge at the local level was always a source of weakness. In fact, the too-rapid expansion of the bank was in itself detrimental. Only about half of the branches were ever able to meet expenses. When Congress, in 1870, revised the charter to permit lending money, the inex- perience of the branch offices often led to bad loans, thus compounding the central office's problems. Also around 1870 the bank came under the control of Jay Cooke & Co., one of the best known bankers of the times.* The opportunistic Cooke used his new appoint- ment as trustee to great advantage. He and his D.C. associates used the Freedmen's Bank to rid themselves of bad securities taken in by their own banks. Finally the failure of Cooke & Co. in 1873 created public con- cern about the Freedmen's Bank. Three heavy runs in 18 months drained its resources. The last of these runs required over $500,000. Just as deposits finally became large enough to take the bank out of the red, it was faced with its greatest crisis. The bank had survived poor management, loose bookkeeping and even embezzlement, but Cooke's manipulation proved too much. The general had banking climate of the Panic of 73 and the inaction of most trustees sealed its doom. In March 1874, Frederick Douglass was invited to replace the elderly Alvord in a belated and vain attempt to head off the impending collapse. An ex-slave himself, Douglass had gained much fame as an abolitionist lecturer. A widely re- spected man, it was thought that his reputation might help restore people's faith in the bank. Douglass, not knowing the extent of the bank's diffi- culties, felt honored by his appointment and enthusiasti- cally set about examining its position. Soon he dis- covered the sad truth: "I was married to a corpse." He immediately set about seeking federal aid, but Con- gress' enthusiasm for the bank had faded over the years See Paper Money No. 54, page 262. and a brief attempt at reorganization failed. A report to the Comptroller of the Currency revealed that the bank faced a large deficit and also that there was a discrepancy of over $42,000 between the books of the central office and the branches. In the face of this, Congress' only contribution towards saving its own creation was a de- bate carried on over many years as to whether it should give any aid or not. The answer always seemed to be in the negative. On June 28, 1874. the Freedmen's Savings Bank closed its doors. There still remained the task of repaying the deposi- tors, many of whom had quite small accounts. Since Congress would not supply funds, a hoard of three com- missioners was appointed to settle affairs as best they could. Lawsuits were usually necessary to collect loans. The extravagant Washington office building had to be sold. Dividends were paid in 1875, 1878 and 1880. Before they were replaced in 1881 by the Comptroller of the Currency (as an economy measure), the commis- sioners had managed to meet 40% of the claims out- standing. The largest claims were handled first; even- tually some 40,000 depositors were left with claims averaging $3.40 each. The Comptroller made more dividend payments in 1882 and 1883. By 1909, $1,731,854 had been repaid and $1,208,071 was still due. The bank's failure created much resentment among blacks towards banks in general. This was a bitter blow to the many people who had taken such pride in "their" bank. Still, the Freedmen's Savings Bank had been con- ceived as a great humanitarian idea. Perhaps a state- ment made by Booker T. Washington best sums this up: "No work was ever undertaken for the benefit of the Freedman more laudable in its purpose or more designed to assist people, who had just come out of slavery, to their feet."

Save the pennies, and the dollars will take care of themselves "I consider the Freedmen's Savings and Trust Com- pany to be greatly needed by the Colored People, and have welcomed it as an auxiliary to the Freedmen's Bureau." Maj. Gen'l. 0. 0. Howard. Exhortations for saving as printed in an 1867 brochure of the Freedmen's Savings Bank CHILDREN IN THE SCHOOLS There is a way for little children in the schools to have a part in the Bank. Let teachers take some pretty envelopes from us, on which is printed "Savings Bank," and have one for each scholar; then let all the spare pennies, five cent and ten cent bills, which the children can earn, be put in the envelope until they amount to one dollar. This dollar will then be brought, by the teacher, to the cashier of the bank. The cashier will take the children's dollar and give them a bank book for it, and when they get another dollar in the same way to put in, it will be two dollars, and so on. All the children of the colored people will, in this way, learn to save, and not to waste what they get, and will have money, when they want it, in the "Savings Bank." Some, who are very saving, will finally have a large sum to do good with, and for their mothers when they are sick; or to help buy a house and garden, where they and their parents can live very happily. I know of two little boys who have ten dollars apiece in the Freedmen's Savings Bank, and they mean to have more than that. A FEW WORDS, COLORED PEOPLE You have here presented to you the names of some of the best men in your country, who have gratuitiously as- sumed the care and responsibility of a company for the safe-keeping and investment of your spare earnings. You are now on the same footing, as to your legal rights, with all other people of this country. You get your wages for your labor, and no one can prevent you. If you work hard you will earn money the same as other folks. Not one of you need remain poor if you are careful and do not spend money for candy, or whiskey, or costly clothes. As for food, cheap, hearty victuals-beef, fish, bread, coffee-will do for men and women better than pies, cakes, and such things which cost more money and give you less strength. Tobacco and Whiskey are the two things which all men who are going to save money must neither touch nor taste. Let us count the cost of a cigar and a glass of whiskey every working day. A mean cigar cost five cents, and the poorest glass of whiskey five cents, which makes ten cents. A man who saves ten cents a day for ten years, will have, if he puts it at interest at six per cent: In 1 year $ 36.99 In 2 years 76.20 In 3 years 117.81 In 4 years 161.94 In 5 years 208.74 In 6 years 258.42 In 7 years 311.13 In 8 years 367.03 In 9 years 426.37 In 10 years 489.31 Some notes are particularly rare because of their popu- larity among collectors, like the Treasury notes of Fiji of 1873. These notes, issued at Levuka, were at a time before Fiji was accepted as a British colony. Indeed, only a few years previous to their issue a missionary was eaten! St. Louis, Mo. Raleigh, N. C.

KELLY PIP HE authoritative reference The Early Paper Money of America indicates the existence of counterfeits of many issues, and describes a number of them. Among those not described are counterfeits of the February i6, 1771 issue of New York. Study of a recently acquired group of notes of this issue turned up one counterfeit—of the ten-pound note. Three of the many differences are readily apparent, and make the counterfeit-genuine distinction an easy one. They are as follows: 1. On the counterfeit, the second "r" in "February" is smaller than the first. On genuine notes the two letters are of equal size. 2. On the counterfeit, the letter "N" in "NEW YORK" (vertically at the left end of the note) has a serif at the bottom of the left leg and the top of the right leg. On genuine notes there is no serif at the top of the right leg and the serif on the left leg is broken. This feature is characteristic of several other denomi- nations of genuine notes. 3. The "telephone pole" cross (similar to the Cross of Lorraine) to the left of the colonist differs markedly on counterfeit and genuine. On the counterfeit, that por- tion of the stem above the cross bars is noticeably longer than the segment between the bars. On genuine notes these two segments are of nearly equal lengths, the upper member being slightly shorter. Figure 1. Genuine Note. Figure 2. Counterfeit Note. Figure 3. Close-up of Counterfeit Note. The accompanying photographs illustrate these distinctions. Reference: The Early Paper lloney of America E. P. Newman. Whit- man Publ. Co. (1967).

This note was printed in blue ink. KANSAS Obsolete Merchant Scrip of Streeter By S. K. WHITFIELD & Strickler JAMES STREETER and Samuel Strickler were part-ners in this substantial firm based at Junction City,Kansas. The firm employed large numbers of men in freighting for the Army and supplying military posts with grain and hay. In 1861, Streeter & Strickler built the first brick building at Junction City. During the early part of the Civil War, the firm issued substantial amounts of scrip. One story has it that the scrip was so plentiful that the soldiers from Fort Riley used it for lighting their pipes. The following notes are known to exist: 250 dated May 1st, 1862; $1.00 dated. Nov. 1st, 1862; and 100, 250 and 500 dated May 1st, 1863. In the late fall of 1863 or 1864, the firm had accumu- lated about $200,000 in government vouchers and Strickler went to Leavenworth to exchange them for greenbacks. He was unsuccessful though, because of a conspiracy to squeeze the firm out of business. After several days, he returned to Junction City where he had to face the drovers and other workers who needed money. Strickler was able to convince them that the firm was sound and needed more time to collect the money owed. The employees finally agreed to wait if only they could get some clothing for the winter. Strickler then re- turned to Leavenworth where he had $10,000 worth of clothing shipped to Junction City. When the clothing arrived, it was handed out over the counter as fast as it could be carried away. After a few weeks the firm got its money and the crisis was passed. potommeelalkometootemskor2',0.- '1,;roesat■rire--)• , ., • , 'jlatASMarstaila , ..7.40.11' 0ANCE11}18r....tkt& ;........, ,..;-404'-`'..-.•,- 4-kit,* -11 * s, / r eU ,10,3 PAGE 82 Paper Money WHOLE NO. 56 Draft of the Banking House of Jas.

The partners occasionally differed on local political matters and in at least one city election they both took money from the same till to spend against each other. The firm eventually closed after the war. The Kansas State Historical Society has in its collection a bank draft dated April 24, 1871 on The Banking House of James Streeter & Co., which indicates that at least one of the partners of this famous firm remained in Junc- tion City and opened a bank. Donlon's Sale of Morris Proofs and Essays for the Educational Series Brings High Bids THE JULY 1974 issue of PAPER MONEY reported the passing of Thomas F. Morris II, well-known phi- latelist and numismatist and son of the famed stamp, bank note and security designer, Tom Morris. Mr. Morris, Sr., as Chief of the Engraving Division of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, was intimately con- cerned with the production of the 1896 Educational Series of Silver Certificates. His biography, written by his son, ran for many months in The Essay-Proof Journal, and the Spring 1968 issue was completely de- voted to the Educational Series story. Later all the in- stallments were gathered into one book—The Life and Work of Thomas F. Morris 1852-1898. (Both items are still available; interested readers should contact the Editor.) William P. Donlon was personally selected by Mr. Morris to disperse his numismatic properties upon his death. The sale took place Nov. 15, 1974. While the catalog included a wide variety of fine notes, the greatest interest was evinced in the section offering essays and proofs of the designs for the Educational notes. For instance, the proof of the proposed design for an unissued $10 Silver Certificate brought $6,800. The set of four proofs of preparatory sketches for the allegorical scene "Electricity" used on the $5 of the Educational Series sold for $4,650. Other uniface proofs from that series included the face design of the $1 note which brought $3,650; the back of the $1 sold for $3,750. The proof of the green back design for the $2 note with portraits of Samuel Morse and Robert Fulton brought $4,350. The proof of the reverse of the $5 note sold for $5,300. A set of three proofs for the face of the $2 note, showing the progressive steps taken by the en- graver, brought $3,800. Essay-proof material from other series included re- verses of the $10, $500 and $5 hills in the original charter National Bank Note series which sold for $1,625; $1,275; and $525, respectively. A set of eight different vignettes used on various obsolete notes sold for $750; paste-up models of the $1 and $5 notes designed for National Exchange Bank, New York sold for $150. NEEDED For SPMC Annual Dinner Meeting Los Angeles, August 1975 Photographer(s) willing to cover Write to the Editor for details. WHOLE NO. 56 Paper Money PAGE 83 SPMC Chronicle Membership Participation Column SYNCRAPH I-CHAT Wants More Articles on Current Currency With the mailing of my annual dues for the coming year of 1975, I thought it time that I write this long overdue letter. It is not often that I complain, but I feel that the hobby needs some good gripes now and then. Mine is simple: I do not feel that enough attention is being given to the new and inexperienced collector. I believe this to be the case not only for SPMC but of other paper money clubs as well. I know and agree that knowledge is the basis for any serious collector. I also know that for new collectors in any hobby, there must be a starting point. Unfortunately, I do not believe that there are enough who believe in paper money collecting. I say this because I can find no more than a very few who take the time to share and inform others of their knowledge. With the exception of Chuck O'Donnell and Nathan Goldstein, there are very few who will share with the rest of the collectors of cur- rent paper money the wealth of knowledge that they alone possess. I do not excuse myself in this matter, either. There are many new collectors who are falling by the wayside because of a shortage of information. This can show up in the most simple ways—by not having a neighborhood dealer or being able to determine current prices—by having notes and no way to trade or pur- chase—by not having current information about blocks, stars, errors, trends and even new printing techniques— by not understanding or knowing why records should be kept and in what format. True, an occasional article is found in some of the magazines and papers, but how many more would it take to explain about individual preferences and techniques? I believe that there are many out there who cannot or do not belong to any clubs other than those which depend on the mails for each and every transaction. How many helpful hints from experience can be given to these new collectors by those who have been dealing in this manner for many years? Could not this learned society whose intent is to continue the knowledge and interest in all paper monies provide some help to the new and younger but no less interested collector? As I made out my check for this year's membership, I began to wonder just what advantage this membership gave. I collect current $1 Federal Reserve Notes. I reviewed several back issues and found very few articles or information with regard to my specialty. I found even less devoted to $5 and $10 FRN's. I feel that these cur- rent and daily handled items deserve more than an occa- sional short column. Recently, as a member of the Paper Money Collectors of Michigan, I began reading letters written by others like me from the other 11 FRN districts. They, too, feel that there is much importance to report- ing their current events and finds. I have heard many comments on these reports and they are all favorable. I would sincerely hope that the Society of Paper Money Collectors would seriously consider assisting in this very important area of our ever-expanding hobby. Our mem- bership which now numbers into the high two thousands of members should have the opportunity to decide for themselves whether or not this area interests them, but I feel that it is the obligation of SPMC itself to provide the necessary input of information for this decision. Comments regarding this should be addressed to Ed Zegers, SPMC 2676. EU ZEGERS In Reply Mr. Zegers' points are well taken. As members know, both through personal contacts at our annual meetings and through appeals in this magazine, I have begged for more substantive articles on current paper money. Those of you who are specializing in it have an obligation to furnish the information of which Mr. Zegers speaks. If specialists in obsolete notes and nationals can do so—and incidentally thereby enhance the value of their material —there is no reason current currency buffs can't. I have never turned down an accurate, responsible piece on our small-size paper money. I have no prejudices. In fact, I do not actively collect for that very reason—I want to remain impartial. Believe me, it not only hurts me but it puzzles me to read the writings on current currency by members and even officers in various other publications. Why, I wonder, won't they support their own society? Why won't they help the hobby through the premier magazine in the field? The ball is in the court of the current currency people now. At least Mr. Zegers has jumped into the game with his article elsewhere in this issue. BARBARA R. MUELLER Splinter Group? Dear Editor: I liked your fighting editorial in the November, 1974 issue. Splinter group—what an insulting idea. Your plan [for conventions separate from ANA] is a good one and I hope you will keep pushing for its adoption. I note that a few months ago the Token Si Medal Society held such a "separate" convention. ERNEST C. WILKENS Help Wanted: How to Display Paper Money Publicly I have written various collectors and government agen- cies about methods of displaying U. S. currency but as yet have had no clear suggestions on exhibiting in public buildings. Fractionals and large-size U. S. are my main interest in paper. I work at a local bank and have been contem- plating a display there for about a year. Since our 200th birthday will be here shortly, I thought this display would make a fine conversation piece for the general public. Besides, I could see it every day! My main problem is fluorescent lighting. The display v, ould be in a case on a wall facing out. The lighting is about five feet beyond facing down (it is covered) towards the floor. While my collection is not an expen- sive one, I do not want any harm from fading to come to it. Someone must have experience in this area. I would very much like to hear from him or her. I need help. Thank you. DENNIS M. DEPRO, SPMC 3886 1947 New Madrid Cape Girardeau, MO 63701 The Winner's Circle We regret that in the "Winner's Circle" listing of ANA exhibition awards in the November 1974 issue, the name of Arthur Reich was omitted. Mr. Reich received a third place with his display of U. S. error currency. (Mr. Reich called attention to this omission in a letter to Secretary Vernon Brown. Once again, we ask all (J\ PAGE 84 Paper Money WHOLE NO. 56 winners to take the initiative and notify the Editor of their good fortune. Don't rely on press releases or re- ports reaching the Editor!) LAST CALL FOR 1975 DUES If you have not paid your 1975 dues by the time you are reading this notice, your membership can expire if payment is not mailed by April 22, 1975 to our treasurer, M. 0. Warns, P. 0. Box 1840, Milwaukee, Wis. 53201. I am sure that it must be an oversight on your part that the dues have not been paid. In order to continue to receive copies of our fine magazine, and to keep your membership active, I urgently request that you mail your check for $8.00 to Mr. Warns while this reminder is fresh in your mind. Members who have already paid their dues have re- ceived with their membership card an application form with the notation that it be used in recommending a friend for membership in SPMC. I am pleased to report that many of our members have done this, and such cooperation is appreciated as it helps to keep our society strong and healthy. VERNON L. BROWN, Secretary Latest SPMC Publication Now Available ••••■•••■••■ ••■•■•• "Minnesota Obsolete Notes and Scrip" by R . H. Rockholt The long-awaited volume on Minnesota in SPMC's continuing project to revise and update the Wismer listings of obsolete U. S. paper money is now off the presses of Krause Publications. With its pristine white and gold cover and 75 fully illustrated pages in the customary 81/2 x 11 format, this work by "Rocky" Rockholt takes its place with the other books in the Wismer series (Texas by Bob Medlar, Florida by Harley Freeman, and Vermont by Mayre B. Coulter). Tne new Minnesota catalog is available for $5.00 to SPMC members and $7.50 to others from SPMC, P. 0. Box 858, Anderson, SC 29621. Prices to SPMC mem- bers on the earlier books are: Texas $6.00; Florida $4.00; and Vermont $10.00. THE UNKNOWN FACTOR (From time to time under this title will be printed photo- graphs or identification of notes which have some puzzling aspect and about which information is sought from the membership. Please address comments to the Editor.) In answer to the query submitted by Leonard H. Finn about the Bank of Lapeer note shown in PAPER MONEY No. 55, Jan./Feb. 1975, George W. Wait gives the follow- ing information: "This is a genuine Michigan note, fully described on page 107 of Harold L. Bowen's "State Bank Notes of Michigan." The bank was organized in 1837 and was in operation for only a few months. If Bowen's listing of officers is correct, the signatures on Mr. Finn's note are fraudulent. "Incidentally, except for the name, this note is exactly like the note of The Lapeer County Bank, illustrated on page 108 of Bowen. This last bank was organized in 1838 but never opened, and its notes are rare. Since the notes of the two banks are identical, conceivably it was intended that The Lapeer County Bank take over the business of The Bank of Lapeer, located in the same town. "The omission of the state could have been for either of these reasons: (1) that the bank thought its notes would be used only locally, or (2) that the bank hoped its notes would be circulated far away and couldn't find their way home for redemption. At least one of them got to Boston!" THE SQUEEZE IS ON The Squeeze Is On Should you collect it or should you spend it? Will the collector ever have to compete with the U. S. Government in currency as he did with the 1878 CC Silver Dollar? With the ever-increasing costs of daily living and in- flation the way it is currently going, it seems harder and harder to hold on to prized notes in one's collection. The collectors seem to be getting less and less in number, and the dealers more and more. The majority of collector/ dealers are trying their darnedest to get as much as possible (inflated-wise?) when selling a note to a collector. The blame for all of this, of course, can't be put on the dealer. How far down in value will the dollar go, since it is now worth about 40 cents? The U. S. Govern- ment has given its help in this. Maybe the currency market is the best place to invest your money. It certainly seems to be, at least when look- ing at the dollars paid for currency at auctions or in private sales. I hope the Federal Reserve System can resolve this inflation system someday, so we can all get back to collecting currency for the fun of it instead of for the profit of it.

It was placed in receivership July 2, 1910 due to incompetent management. This note has but three creases, all vertical and fairly heavy, the center one having reinforcement on the reverse, and the edges of the bill have been trimmed close to the border. However, the overall appearance of this rarity is exceptional. It is bright, clean and still has most of its original crispness. The note is completely free from pinholes and stains, and is further enhanced by the bold brown pen signatures of the assistant cashier and the vice-president. Coming from the eighth sheet printed, this rare territorial could be the centerpiece of your collection for only $2,975.00. ,A6 3097 latitttip NS 4,014.40 -S -,4 36 ***fig--ifill?

Compare the rarity and beauty of large-size paper money with any coin, and I believe you will be entirely convinced that currency is one of the best values per dollar spent. It would only take one out of every ten coin collectors to get interested in collecting currency to make the prices of most of the better pieces triple or better. For example, the $5 Silver Certificate, 1923 series, commonly called the "Porthole Note," is as rare in Uncirculated as the 1907 $20 Hi-Relief gold piece, but less than 1 / 1 0th the price. Also, the CU $5 1899 series Silver Certificate "Onepapa" compares favorably in rarity and beauty with an XF-AU $10 gold type 1797-1804, but costs $275 instead of $3,000. We would be interested in ANY CU Large-Size Currency. $1.00 FRN SMALL-SIZE SETS OF ALL 12 FEDERAL RESERVE DISTRICTS 1963 Series, last digit matches, CU, FR #1900 $19.50 1963 Series, last 2 digits match, CU FR #1900 22.50 1963 Series, last 4 digits match, CU, FR #1903 25.00 1963-A Series, last 2 digits match, CU, FR #1901 22.50 1969 Series, last 3 digits match, CU FR #1903 22.50 SET OF 10 1969 SERIES "J" DISTRICT Last 5 digits in serial numbers go from XXX00000 to XXX99999— Hard to duplicate at $65.00.

OWEN WARNS Foreword by GLENN B. SMEDLEY EXCERPTS From What Is Being Written About The Nevada "Sixteen" LIMITED PR INTING Warns' classic book on the Nevada national banks is a perfect example of how numismatics and syngraphics tie in with all respects the Frontier West, with the gold rushes, Wells Fargo, Virginia City, the Comstock and just about every- thing connected with the early development of Nevada and its fabulous gold mines. Morey Perlmutter, Western Americana specialist. This book's title, already long enough, might well have included the words "A Pictorial History of" since well over half its contents are reproductions of documents, bank notes and related pictures of early Nevada. Merely gathering this docu- mentary material was an awesome task and undertaking. Maybe one sentence from the State Archivist sums it all up: "Many unknown facts and history are to be found within its many pages." American Numismatic Association, Review by Glenn B. Smedley. A review of your book, "The Nevada 'Sixteen' " will appear shortly in our Society's quarterly publication. Banking is one of those subjects in Nevada's history which never seemed to have been written about. Nevada Historical Society, Ralph Earle, curator. Warns' book, "The Nevada 'Sixteen' National Banks and Their Mining Camps" is a rich storehouse of information covering the early struggles of the mining camps and the establishment of the banks that followed. Nevadan, Las Vegas Review Journal, Wm. Vincent. The in-depth study of Nevada's National Banks is a major contribution to our State's history. Frederick C. Sale, Archivist, State of Nevada. I am really pleased with the wonderful acceptance and success of your book, "The Nevada `Sixteen'." J. Roy Pennell Jr., President, Society Paper Money Collectors. One of the finest examples of excellence in numismatic (or better syngraphic) research and writing is to be found in the new book published by the SPMC. Authored by M. 0. Warns, it is titled "The Nevada 'Sixteen' National Banks." There are 404 pages crammed with information and photo reports of the notes issued by the banks. Paper Money Periscope, Nathan Goldstein H. The members of the Board of the California State Numismatic Society were delighted with the copy of "The Nevada `Sixteen' " I displayed at the meeting last night; the result—please send and bill us for 12 copies. Charles G. Colver, Secretary, California Numismatic Society. We are pleased with your book, "The Nevada `Sixteen'." This valuable reference will be placed along side our treasured books in our bank's Western History Room for all to observe and refer to. Wells Fargo Bank, Irene Simpson Neasham, Vice-President. Rarely can a scholarly volume on an aspect of paper money double as a coffee table piece. "The Nevada 'Sixteen' Na- tional Banks" is equally at home in your numismatic library or on your coffee table. The book makes interesting read- ing and takes nothing away from its scholarship. Warns has thoroughly covered along the way, the emergence of Nevada as a State. Bank Note Reporter Review. Warns, one of the most respected National Bank Note researchers, has created much more than a catalog in his 404 page quarto-size book. Into it he has blended the warp and the woof from the Silver State itself. Coin World, Review. S.P.M.C. MEMBERS ONLY $15.00 - SAVE $2.50 (PRICE TO NON-MEMBERS $17.50) Mail Your Check To M. 0.

Notes may be returned in seven days for refund. But there is more: As a collector I am very sensitive to grading and I would like to find some way to prop up the sagging standards of grading paper money that seem to be moving in upon us. For notes I sell, I extend the "guarantee" another notch. Should anyone return a note to me for vague or general reasons . . . his privilege . . . he pays the return postage and insurance. But if he honestly feels the note is overgraded . . . or defects not adequately described . . he tells me so with his return and I reimburse him for the return postage and registration fee. That's fair to him . . . and keeps me honest. WILLIAM P.
