Flesher a bank failure George Flanaga hem: ;'banknot — Peter Hunt Circulated Currency F-828 $20 1915 Dallas Abt. Fine, well-centered, bright 750.00 Federal Reserve Notes Demand for uncirculated currency has never been stronger. In fact, it is increasing each day. Prices are moving upward at such a rate that the average collector can no longer quickly assemble an uncirculated "type" set due to the initial high cost. What can the collector do and still maintain the joy of collecting beautiful and historical U.S. paper money? The logical answer is to turn to the circulated notes. We have seen many circulated notes that had brighter colors and better centering than their uncirculated colleagues. And don't forget, certain notes are unknown in the uncir- culated grades. Many collectors, and a few investors, are missing out on the joy (and potential profit) by not buying circulated notes. Circulated notes over the years have shown an increase in price (and a profit to their owners) so now is the time to buy for your collection before prices of the circulated notes go any higher!

Flesher, CPA School of Accountancy University of Mississippi University, Mississippi 38677 © 1979 Dale L. Flesher The close-up of the Central Transportation certificate illustrates the intricate work of the engraver's art. Aokles-seile,,,, PA) liS".A,, Page 326 Whole No. 84 One of the newest areas of the paper money collecting field is widely known as "scripophily". Scripophily is the term describing the hobby of collecting stock and bond certificates. Collectors of financial paper often overlook the busi- ness world. Too often, business items and documents have been thrown in the trash as worthless while an equally old, and sometimes less beautiful, consumer item was collected as an antique. Corporate stock and bond certificates are just such examples. The thought of corporate stock certificates and bonds conjures up images of the New York Stock Exchange, high finance, and sophisticated investments. Rarely in the past have these documents ever been considered as collectible Americana. Increasingly, though, stock certificates are being treasured by a group other than investors. Col- lectors have begun acquiring old stock certificates and bonds of defunct corporations. No longer is it important for a company to have a profitable financial future. The stock certificates and bonds of bankrupt firms may now be worth almost as much to a collector as the certificates of prosperous firms are to a Wall Street investor. Stock and bond certificates may have been worth thousands of dollars at the time of their issue, but a great majority of them became totally worthless as a result of the issuing corporations filing bankruptcy during the depressions of the 1890's and 1930's. These worthless documents have been stored away in bank vaults, safe deposit boxes, and drawers for decades. Only in the past ten years have collectors begun to take an interest in these once valuable pieces of paper. It has been estimated that there were only about one This certificate from the Tobacco Products Corporation was worth over $11,000 at the time of its issue in 1926. The firm went bankrupt in 1936. Thus, the certificate can be acquired for less than two dollars today. The low price of this beautifully engraved collectible is attributable to the fact that Tobacco Products was a very large company and hundreds of thousands of certificates were printed and issued. hundred stock certificate collectors in the United States in 1964. There was no organized market. Today, the number of collectors reaches into the thousands and there are perhaps dozens of dealers around the country specializing in certificates. In addition to those dealers that specialize in certificates, there are also many non- specialist dealers at every antique show, coin show, and flea market who have at least a few stocks and bonds available for sale. Stock and bond collecting is also popu- lar in Europe, especially Great Britain and West Ger- many. One U.S. dealer claims that over half of his sales are made to Germans. The hobby is so popular in Ger- many that several books on certificate collecting have been published in the German language. Collectors' clubs exist all over Europe. The largest club is the English Bond and Share Certificate Collectors' Society. Scripophily has to be the perfect collecting hobby be- cause certificates offer so many types of pleasure for such a low price. Each collector seems to have his or her own reasons for pursuing the hobby. Among the most popular reasons for collecting certificates are the following: 1. Stock and bond certificates are a variety of paper Americana and are collected as such by nostalgia buffs and historians. Paper Money Page 327 2. Many stocks and bonds bear beautifully engraved pictures (called vignettes►. These engravings are col- lected as "limited edition" prints by those who have an eye for esthetic attractiveness. 3. In earlier years revenue stamps had to be attached to stock certificates when the stock was sold. There- fore, stamp collectors have found the collecting of stock certificates to be an excellent adjunct hobby. 4. Stock certificates represent ownership in corpora- tions and are collected by business historians who are interested in the history of the ownership, manage- ment, and capitalization of particular firms. 5. Stock and bond certificates, particularly those of small companies, often represent an important source of local history. Therefore, many collectors are only interested in certificates issued in their immediate locale. 6. Stock and bond certificates bear the signatures of the corporation's management. Consequently, stock certificates are an important source of autographs for the collector of philography. 7. The collecting of stock certificates is the perfect accompaniment to many other collecting hobbies. For instance, antique auto collectors might be interested in stock certificates of the early automobile companies, and collectors of railroad memorabilia find that stock and bond certificates of early railroads make a nice addition to the collections they already possess. The following sections expound upon what each of the seven types of collectors looks for in a certificate. The Niagara Oil Company certificate from the 1860's is an example of an unissued certificate. The company apparently went out of business before this particular certificate was sold. Because the certificate was never signed, its value is less than five dollars despite the fact that it is over a century old. #1:Nostalgic Americana Stock and bond certificates are a type of paper Ameri- cana that can be compared closely to advertising cards, bank checks, and postcards. They are relatively rare, but not so rare that they are not within the reach of the aver- age person. The original owners of stock and bond certi- ficates valued the documents and thus took good care of them. Rarely is a stock or bond ever found in poor condi- tion. The certificates were either treasured or disposed of by the original owners. Some collectors find the former value of a stock certifi- cate to be an interesting aspect of the hobby. For in- stance, a certificate for 20,000 shares of a mining com- pany might have been worth over one million dollars in 1927, but can be purchased today for two or three dollars. What other type of collectible can be purchased today for such a small percentage of the original selling price when new? #2:Limited Edition Art Prints Most corporate stock and bond certificates bear beau- tiful engraved pictures on their face. Consequently, a collector of art prints might find that these old certifi- cates are, in fact, a type of early American, limited edition art print. Stock and bond certificates were usually Page 328 • Whole No. 84 The certificate of the Isabella Gold Mining Company is one of the most beautifully engraved of western mining stocks.

As a result of this care and detail, en- graved stock and bond certificates represent the finest work by American artists of the time. The types of pic- tures appearing on certificates are many. Common sub- jects include semi-nude gods and goddesses, birds, animals, buildings, trains, and portraits of corporate founders. Since corporations only printed enough certi- ficates to issue to their stock and bond holders, and numbered these for record keeping purposes, the certifi- cates are true examples of limited edition, numbered art prints. The value of an engraved stock or bond certificate is dependent upon the beauty of the engraving, the supply available, and the fame of the corporate executives who signed the certificates. For these reasons, a stock certifi- cate issued by a small firm will often be more valuable than an equally beautiful certificate of a larger firm since the small company will usually have issued a lesser number of certificates. Engraved prints of the 1800's (such as Currier and Ives) are quite valuable. Stock and bonds, however, which bear beautiful engravings sell for very low prices. This apparent inconsistency in the value of engravings can only be explained by the lack of awareness of the poten- tial value of certificate engravings. Although some certi- ficates with beautiful engravings from the 1920's and 1930's can be purchased for as little as 25 cents (for example, the stock certificate of the Tobacco Products Company), the more common price range is from $3 to $5. It should be noted that some retail prices have actually gone down during the past decade due to a better organ- ised market for certificates. The reverse side of the Isabella Gold Mining certificate shows where the revenue stamps were affixed. Also, the owner of a certificate must endorse the reverse side before the stock can be sold. Consequently, if a famous person had owned the certificate, there might be a famous autograph on the back side. Stock certificates do not have to be old to attract the interest of the collector who is interested in beautiful engravings. Many modern stock certificates are quite lovely and are sought by collectors as much for the pic- ture as for the investment in the corporation. Ringling Brothers Circus and Playboy stock certificates are exam- ples of modern day engravings of collectible quality. A recent Wall Street Journal article states that Playboy Corporation had a higher percentage of stockholders who owned only one share than any other corporation. These stockholders who own only one share of Playboy were not Paper Money interested in the company as an investment, but in the engraving of an unclad lady appearing on the stock certificate. #3:Revenue Stamps In earlier years, stock sales were taxed by federal, state, and foreign governments. As evidence of the fact that the tax had been paid, a revenue stamp was attached to the reverse side of the stock certificate. Therefore, many stamp collectors have found that collecting stock certificates with stamps attached is an excellent com- panion hobby. Stock certificate collectors are often sur- prised to discover that the stamps affixed to the back of their certificates are issued not only by the United States Internal Revenue Service, but also by various state governments (New York and Massachusetts most frequently). Occasionally, foreign revenue stamps can be found attached to certificates. Sometimes the selling price of the stock certificate is less than the catalog price of the stamp by itself. More commonly, however, the price of the certificate is at least equal to the value of the stamp. Nevertheless, it is nice to be able to pursue two collections for the price of one. #4:Business History Business historians often find it difficult to reconstruct the history of early corporations. Most records have often been destroyed by some catastrophe such as a fire, or intentionally by management when storage space was not available to house the records of previous years. Con- sequently, stock certificates may sometimes be the only source of information relating to early management, ownership, and capital possessed by the company. Even when a firm has been destroyed by fire, the stock certi- ficates probably still exist since the certificates were kept in the homes of the owners or in bank vaults. In addition to supplying the information mentioned above, old stock certificates may even provide the his- torian with a picture of the company's building, or per- haps pictures of the founders. Although it may be neces- sary for the business historian to possess several stock certificates of the same company, they are still a valuable primary source of information about a company. The certificates that are of most interest to business historians are those that were issued by small companies. Large firms often kept adequate records, whereas small firms might have kept fewer records and received less publicity. The certificates are thus the only remaining evidence of the firm's financial activities. #5:Local History Local historians occasionally find that stock certifi- cates are an important source of local history. Certifi- cates are usually signed by community leaders, and the original owners' names are normally also well known, at least in small towns. Since many small corporations printed a picture of the firm on their certificates, a visual image of the company's buildings is available. If the buildings are still standing, their location can be dis- covered by using the stock certificate picture as a guide. #6:Autographs Corporate stock certificates are signed by the president or vice president of the firm and usually the secretary of the company. Consequently, stock certificates issued by large firms may be a source of material for those who Page 329 collect autographs. The names of such famous American businessmen as Cornelius Vanderbilt, John D. Rockefeller, and J. Paul Getty can all be found on stock certificates. Imagine the excitement of finding an Ameri- can Express Company certificate of the 1860's bearing the signatures of both members of the Wells Fargo team: Henry Wells and William Fargo. An earlier American Express Company certificate (1850's) bears the signature of William Fargo and John Butterfield (of stagecoach fame). Either of these certificates sells for about $100 each. Although most certificates bear the signatures of lesser known individuals, the autographs still may be valuable in the local area where the corporation was located. #7: Companion Hobby Individuals with special interests may find that the collecting of stock certificates is an adjunct hobby to add interest to some other type of collection. Collectors of mining equipment may find that stock certificates of mining companies add additional excitement to their hobby. Glass collectors can specialize in stock certificates of glass companies. Movie buffs might be interested in collecting certificates of old theaters or old film pro- ducing companies. Collectors of railroad memorabilia are among the most avid of certificate collectors as they specialize in the stocks and bonds of the many defunct American railroads. Whatever a person's hobby, there is probably some aspect of stock and bond certificate col- lecting that would add extra interest to the existing hobby. What Determines Stock Certificate Value? As with any type of collectible, the value of an old stock or bond is determined by supply and demand. On the supply side, certificates are categorized as either issued or unissued. Issued certificates are those that have been issued by the corporation. The issued certificate bears the name of the owner of the certificate and the signature of the corporate officers. An unissued certificate is one that has been printed up by a corporation, but never sold. The issued certificates are usually considered more valuable because of the signatures they bear. Since most large well-known firms have issued great quantities of stock certificates, their value is quite low. Small companies, however, may have issued fewer certificates and thus the supply is less. Certificates that have been issued by a corporation and then later cancelled are worth less than uncancelled certificates. Cancelled certificates are worth more than unissued certificates. Cancelled certificates are a rather new phenomenon in the field of scripophily. Historically, collectible certificates were those that were held by individual owners when a firm went bankrupt. There was no way to get the certificates that corporations had cancelled since the firms had to keep the old certificates for their files. However, with the expansion of the market for old certificates during the late 1960's and early 1970's, many dealers began approaching corporations to see if the firms would sell their cancelled certificates. Since there was money to be made, many corporations decided to sell. Consequently, crates containing millions of pre-World War II cancelled stocl and bond certificates have recently been purchased by dealers. Page 330 Whole No. 84 On the demand side, the value of certificates is deter- mined by many of the factors mentioned in this article. These determinants of value can be summarized as follows: 1. The age of the certificates (older is more valuable(. 2. The quality of the engraving. 3. The importance of the officers who signed the cer- tificates. 4. Value of stamps attached to the reverse. 5. The industry in which the company operated. These factors, either singly or combined, determine the price at which a stock certificate will sell. For example, a certificate of a small local company bearing a beautiful engraving that was once owned by some famous person- ality, and that was once worth one million dollars, would probably be rather valuable (perhaps $50-$100). The same engraving and signature on the certificate of a large international corporation might result in a stock certificate that was worth only $1. In addition, the loca- tion of the buyer and seller can make a difference in the price of a certificate since there is a great deal of localism and specialization among certificate collectors. This aspect of specialization is what causes the fifth factor above to be a determinant of certificate value. For exam- ple, so many collectors specialize in railroad company certificates that prices are much higher for any stock or bond that portrays a train. The reason for the popularity of railroad certificates is partially due to the romance of railroading, and partially to the attractiveness of the stocks and bonds. Other industries that are popular with certificate collectors include the auto manufacturing, mining, petroleum, telephone companies, and steamship lines. Old certificates can be found in a number of places. Since there has been such an increase in the number of collectors in the past decade, many antique shops now carry at least a few certificates. Certificates can also be found at some coin stores and at flea markets. There are also several dealers who advertise regularly in coin and antique magazines. Many families have a few old stock certificates stored in the attic or in old trunks. These were considered worthless in a bygone day and have often been forgotten by their owners. Old bank vaults are also a source of certificates. Banks often took certificates as security on loans prior to the Great Depression. When the corporations went bankrupt, the banks were left with the worthless certificates. Small town banks, in particular, are still storing these dust covered securities. Stock and bond certificates that were once viewed as valuable stock market investments are being looked upon as investments again today. However, today they are not investments in the stock market, but investments in Americana. So if your grandmother left you a portfolio of "worthless" securities, dig them out again. They may now be valuable art treasures or antiques. In summary, the collecting of stock certificates is an ideal hobby that will fit almost any pocketbook or inter- est. Unlike many types of collectibles, stock and bond certificates permit a person to pursue many hobbies simultaneously. The next time a company you invest in goes bankrupt, do not despair. That certificate may be the first step in a new collection of engravings. The purpose of this letter is to get the response of the "Small Size Block Collector". At the last paper money show, put on by the Memphis Coin Club in Memphis, several of my trade friends expressed that they had a good time, but they thought that the show had more to offer the national collector, the foreign collector, the obsolete collector, and the Confederate collector. They thought that something was needed to attract the small size block collector. I had to agree with them. Myself being a small block collector, I spent more time in the lobby and in friends' rooms trading notes than on the floor buying notes. With this in mind, I tried to think of things that would be more interesting to the small size block collector. Two ideas came to me right away. The first was to have more dealers set up at the show which specialize in small size notes. This would be great, but how do you get them to pay the table rent when the past three shows have not been too good for them. Although I don't think they went home unhappy, the traffic was just not looking for what they had. The second idea was to have a swap meet. That is, to have a time set, say Saturday afternoon, for all those who collected blocks to get together in a designated place, say one of the meeting rooms, and trade or buy notes from other block collectors. Every one could bring their extra notes and their want list. The second idea probably has more merit, but I would like to have your opinion and any other suggestions you may have. After I receive your comments, I will take the matter to the general membership of the Memphis Coin Club for their response. I know next year's show will be bigger and better than the last, but hopefully with your help, it will also be better for the small size block collector. Gregory L.

LI OWED LINTION-.6 Of 25O0 BEP Union Prints Syngraphic "Souvenir Card" By Barbara R. Mueller First reported in the Summer 1979 issue of The Essay- Proof Journal is the existence of a new "souvenir card" with special syngraphic significance. Following its occasional practice of producing such a card to publicize the art of line engraving, the International Plate Printers, Die Stampers and Engravers Union of North America whose members work at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing released the card shown here at its 1979 convention in Washington, D.C. Of the 2500 copies made, about half were sold at the time for eight dollars each. The rest were turned over to a numismatic group for eventual resale. Proceeds are to go to Union charities. Members of the Union supposedly did the work over the July 4th holiday, using Bureau facilities but furnishing all labor and materials. The cream-colored card measures 11 x 8 1/16 inches. Aside from the gold stamped initial letter and union emblem, all printing is in maroon. The vignette itself is about 5'/2 inches high and 2 inches at its widest point. According to SPMC member George Brett, the title of the engraving is "Miss Liberty rising from the Capitol". It was engraved by G.F.C. Smillie in 1919. In its original form it was used on the backs of Liberty Loan coupon bonds of 1927-42. For the souvenir card it was modified by obscuring the Capitol with a mound of clouds. "Miss Liberty" is also known as the statue of "Freedom" atop the Capitol dome. Former Bureau Director Seymour Berry wrote the text of the card. Printing was done on a hand-fed, flat-bed press. Page 332 Whole No. 84 If anything was ever invented to quicken the pulse of a National Bank Note buff, it is the word "Territory," "Terr." or "Ter." on a note laid before him! Territorials have always occupied an exalted place among collectors and the mystique surrounding them has routinely been translated into record sales prices in the past five years. Prices for the really rare territorials commonly exceed $10,000. It will not be many years before one goes for more than $20,000. THE PAPER COLUMN by Peter Huntoon On February 1, 1967, I added my first territorial to my budding collection. The note was a $20 Red Seal on the Citizens National Bank of Alamogordo, Territory of New Mexico, that grades a full XF or some would call it AU. I reached for that one, paying some $175 for it, and it represented the culmination of my fondest numismatic dream. To say the least, I was excited. Others, a few much rarer, have come my way but that one will always be special. Along with John Hickman, I have kept track of the territorials that have come on the market and a rather comprehensive picture is beginning to emerge. We now know the rarity of these great notes, and with Van Bel- kum's data, we have a good idea of just which notes are most likely to turn up in the coming years. Just this past year, a number of extremely important new territorials came out of the weeds. For a sampling consider the following: $2 Original Series on the Otoe County National Bank of Nebraska City, Nebraska Terri- tory, VG, bank serial 307, and the fourth confirmed NT. How about the seventh confirmed Washington terri- torial, a $5 Brown Back on Seattle (2966) in XF bearing bank serial 1479? Just shortly before these appeared, the fourth Idaho territorial showed up, a $2 First Charter on Boise City appropriately bearing bank serial 2! In 1977 we saw an unexpected territorial — one that no one thought was printed — a $20 1882 Date Back on Juneau, Territory of Alaska. Alaska is the only territory represented by a single note. Table 1 shows the relative rarity of the territorials and is a startling and impressive list. Realize that 5,881,978 large size territorial notes were issued. Of this number over one million were issued by the First National Bank of Hawaii (5550), leaving the remainder to be distributed over some 607 other banks. If one thousand territorials survive today, over a third of them are Hawaii's, another half are either Indian or Oklahoma, and the rest are spread thinly among the re- maining locations on Table 1. Even the late territories (see Table 2) such as Arizona are not common. In fact, with about 26 known today, Arizona ranks tenth in overall rarity. Incidentally, a great new Arizona territorial just showed up, a $10 Brown Back on 4729 of Phoenix. This rarity grades only G-VG but find another one. For the statistician, the cur- rent ratio of Arizona territorials is one surviving speci- men per 14,000 notes issued. Alaska remains the special territory. To fully appre- ciate the one known note on the Territory of Alaska, you must realize that Alaska had two organic acts, the first on May 17, 1884, created the District of Alaska, and the second on August 24, 1912, established the Territory of "TER." - Magic letters if there ever were any!

A mere 6,792 Alaska territorials were issued, representing 0.12 percent of the 5,881,978 territorials issued in the country. They all came from Juneau (5117) in the form of 1882 Brown Backs and 1882 Date Backs. What makes it tough for Alaska territorials is the fact that the 1902 Plain Back Blue Seals issued by Juneau are technically territorials but the plate reads simply Alaska. The eight notes known from this odd plate have never achieved territorial status because they don't say territory. Were all the territorials issued during the territorial period? No - a significant percentage of the Nebraska and Colorado territorials were actually printed from territorial plates long after those regions achieved state- hood. In fact, of the four Nebraska territorials known, only two were actually printed and issued during the territorial period. The same thing happened to Fairbanks (7718), Alaska. In 1912, when Alaska went from a district to a territory, the Fairbanks 1902 plates were never altered to reflect the new territorial status. Consequently Fairbanks 1902 Date Back and Plain Back notes con- tinued to be printed and issued from district plates until 1929. Most young territorial plates such as those from Arizona and New Mexico were phased out as soon as the locations attained statehood. MINING FOR MONEY From the Banker's Magazine, October 1884 On September 22nd the Cashier of the First National Bank of Las Vegas, New Mexico, became convinced that robbers were tunnelling from an adjoining building to the vault in the bank. Guards were immediately placed in and around the bank. Those inside observed the masonry of the vault gradually sinking. The robbers beneath worked on, ignorant of their danger. At one o'clock, a Mexican volunteered to go down into the cellar to investigate. He had taken a few steps on the stairs, when he saw some one coming up. The Mexican fired without a word, and the man fell dead. He proved to be one of the masons who built the vault, a man of property and good reputation. His confederates escaped. The tunnel gave evidence of long and patient work on the part of the robbers. It was sixty feet in length, con- structed on scientific principles, containing provisions, water, and a full outfit of mining tools, and must have been three months in construction. The robbery was evi- dently planned for the time of the month in which the bank always received large remittances of currency and coin for monthly payments of the railroads of that vi- cinity.

National Bank as developed from information furnished by George Flanagan Whole No. 84 The Washington County National Bank of Greenwich #1266 — organized June 30, 1865 with a capital of $200,000 — placed in receivership June 8, 1878 — reason for failure: incompetent management — Circulation Issued: First Charter Original Series 1-1-2-2 plate — $38,520 worth; serials 1 to 6420 5-5-5-5 plate — $84,000 worth; serials 1 to 4200 10-10-10-20 plate — $108,750 worth; serials 1 to 2175 First Charter Series of 1875 5-5-5-5 plate — $34,400 worth; serials 1 to 1720 10-10-10-20 plate — $43,050 worth; serials 1 to 861 Total amount of circulation issued — $308,720 Amount outstanding at close — $114,220 Amount outstanding in 1916 — $ 1,654 Estimated amount outstanding in 1977 —$ 555 Five years ago on a trip to Greenwich, N.Y. for the purpose of visiting relatives, George Flanagan (SPMC 3711) delved into local archives to uncover the history behind the first charter original series National Bank notes shown here and the accompanying succinct summary of the issuing bank's statistics. (Greenwich is located 40 miles northeast of Albany on the Battenkill River and southwest of Manchester, Vermont.) What he found was the story of Edwin Andrews, the cashier who signed the notes. This story was developed in an interview with Mr. Flanagan and published in the Greenwich Journal and Salem Press community newspaper, issue of August 29, 1974: The Washington County National Bank, predecessor of which was the Washington County Bank organized in 1838, was a part of the empire developed by the descendants of Job Whipple, who established the first Manchester Greenwich ! •VT. W.Arling ton jArlington 4) O7e‘C I nninglonh Paper Money Page 335 permanent settlement in Greenwich in 1781. Whipple built a dam on the Battenkill and brought to the village William Mowry, who started a cotton mill there. This industry was the first of several score of businesses with which the family was associated. William Mowry married Job Whipple's daughter, Lydia. Their son-in-law, Henry Holmes, was the first president of the bank; their son, Leroy M. Mowry, was the first vice-president. Edwin Andrews was the cashier for all but the first year of its existence, and it is Edwin Andrews who is the protagonist of the story of the rise and fall of the bank and of the first family of Greenwich. While the Mowrys and the Holmes were stockholders and directors of the bank, Edwin Andrews held the key position of cashier. Although not related to them by blood, he held the even closer relationship of being allied with the family in all their business affairs. He was their man. Edwin Andrews could certainly be described as a pillar of the community. From an Horatio Alger beginning — he came to Greenwich from Sandgate, Vt., at 14 and became a bar boy in a tavern at Center Falls — he rose to become the industrial, financial, political, and philanthropic leader in the town. More significantly, he was the finance officer, the treasurer of almost every group with which he was associated. The bank flourished during its first three decades, for this was the period of industrial growth in Greenwich. The Mowrys, the Holmes, the Andrews, and the bank were involved in almost every business venture in town, and as long as prosperity reigned, so did they. However, in the 1870s the business boom began to wane. The industries, which in those days were locally financed, ran into hard times. Some could not meet their obligations; some were foreclosed; all were having financial problems. Edwin Andrews was at the axis of it all. As cashier of the bank, he was the banker to whom they turned. As a director and/or treasurer of the local businesses in financial straits, he was the industrialist who needed a sympathetic banker. That proved to be an untenable position. On June 6, 1878, the bank was closed by the Treasury authorities in Washington. On June 19, 1878, Edwin Andrews was found hanging by a rope from a rafter in his barn on Academy Street. Examination of the records of the bank after it failed showed there had been all sorts of financial finagling going on, involving the officers and directors of the bank. Leroy Mowry, president of the bank, and John T. Masters, vice-president, who were also officers of a spectacularly unsuccessful business venture, the Washington Mowing Machine Co., were indebted to the bank for $108,000 in this business alone. William Holmes, son of the first bank president and a bank director, and Edwin Andrews, the cashier, owed the bank $65,000. The loans of $173,000 that these four men alone owed were nearly $20,000 more than the actual capital of the bank. To accomplish this high finance Mr. Andrews had resorted to a series of maneuvers. The bank examiners found that stocks held by the bank for special depositors had been used by Mr. Andrews for collateral, accounts had not been credited with deposits and loan payments, and even the mortgage payments of more than $8,000 made by the Dutch Reformed Church, of which not surprisingly Mr. Andrews was treasurer, had never been credited. Purely and simply, the bank's accounts were a mess, due in large measure to the ambivalent methods of Edwin Andrews. L.N. Price, the receiver of the bank, did a bit moralizing about the situation. He said: "The stockholders of this bank trusted implicitly to the directors, and they in turn had a blind confidence in Edwin Andrews and his management, while Andrews was afflicted with moral blindness and in his misuse of bank and other funds, failed to realize that he was committing a criminal breach of trust. "Officers or directors of a bank who are large borrowers lose their independence of judgment, their most valuable qualification, and sooner or later are apt to permit the bank to take the risk of the enterprises in which they are engaged. The 'fatal facility' is generally fatal to the corporation. But in this instance the officers embarked in a venture without brains or capital to shield the bank. The result was a foregone conclusion until the mountain of accumulated debt made it ruinous to stop and annihilation to go on." During the 12 days of June, 1878, which lapsed between the disclosure of the bank's insolvency and the suicide of Edwin Andrews, the public reaction ranged from excitement and incredulity to shock, resentment and fear.

John Ferreri Tracing the historical significance of vignettes or titles appearing on U.S. broken bank notes offers quite a challenge and invariably the chase terminates at some library, historical society or in the stacks of mildewed books and references so often found in some obscure antique shop. The note of the What Cheer Bank pictured here long ago piqued my interest as to the origin of its title. This title, it seems, can be traced back to the days of the Puritans and Roger Williams, one of the true friends of the American Indians in the New England Colonies. He was humanitarian toward them and became a person they Seal of the City of Providence engraved by American Banknote Co. Photo courtesy of Rhode Island Historical Society. Paper Money Page 337 could put their trust in. He made many friends among them, including Canonicus, a chieftain of the Narragansetts. This increased his unpopularity with the Puritan magistrates to the point where they conspired to kidnap and return him to England. Luckily Williams heard of this plot and escaped to the wilderness with his servant Thomas Angell, but leaving his family behind. After living in this form of exile for a few months, he settled on the east bank of the Seekonk River in Rehoboth, Massachusetts, where his Indian friends helped him clear land and start building a house. He planned to relocate his family here. Eventually five more of his friends joined him in the endeavour. Good fortune was not in store, however, as the governor of Plymouth, (Winslow) advised Williams by letter that he was settling on land of his jurisdiction and was not welcome there. Forsaking the half-built homes, the band of six men put out in a canoe from the shore that marked the western boundary of the colony that rejected them. They paddled to the opposite shore, where suddenly outlined against the sky a group of native warriors loomed before the gaze of the startled strangers. The group feared the worst until the Indian spokesman shouted the greeting which Rhode Islanders have come to regard as the friendliest of welcomes. "What Cheer, Netop?" (Netop, an Indian word meaning friend!) This greeting from the native warriors seemed to be the turning point of the fortunes of Roger Williams. He had come to the land of his friend, Canonicus. He believed that only by God's own providence was he led to this land and thereafter named this area Providence. The directors of at least four state banks in New England saw fit to commemorate this event on the notes issued by their banks. One bank was actually titled the "What Cheer Bank ". Another, the Landholders Bank of Kingston, Rhode Island, issued a one-dollar note depicting the "Landing of Roger Williams ". A similar vignette appears on a three-dollar note of the Tradesmens Bank of New Haven, Connecticut. It is interesting to note that the vignette used on the note of the Tradesmens Bank is identical to the seal of the City of Providence. This rendition was engraved by the American Banknote Company. The engraving on the Landholders Bank note is a copy, not exact, of an engraving by T.F. Hoppin that was published with The New Mirror, January 27, 1844. The original engraving by Hoppin clearly shows six subjects in the canoe being welcomed by the Indians, while the engraving on the banknote shows only four subjects in the canoe and fewer Indians. In both instances we can surmise that the banknote engraver was less interested in historical fact than in reduction of the subject matter in order to fit the confines of the banknotes.

OWEN WARNS SUPPLEMENT VIII Additions to the 1929-1935 National Bank Note issues previously reported The on-going research into the 1929-1935 National Bank Note issues was initiated in 1968 by a small group of interested members of our Society. It consisted of Johnny 0. Bass, John Hickman, Richard L. Hood, Peter Huntoon, Louis Van Belkum, John Waters, and the writ- er, M. Owen Warns. The purpose of the group was to create an in-depth study by reporting unknown notes; re- cording the many notes with errors, plate and signature varieties; and tracking down the radically different print- ing methods and type faces used on what turned out to be the concluding issues of National Bank Notes that had their origin in the Act of February 25, 1863 authorizing their issuance by government chartered banks. The primary concern of that study group was to seek out authoritative sources and knowledgeable individuals who were in a position to help in answering the many un- answered questions the issue posed and to record their findings with the eventual purpose of publishing the facts in a single volume for the collector, for research reference, and for the sake of posterity. We were well aware that a similar coordinated study group had not been formed to cover those notes of the earlier charter note issuing periods, with the result that much of the detailed informa- tion had been inadvertently passed up, unrecorded, with significant factual data relating to the notes being lost, fading into oblivion. This is exactly what the SPMC study group did not want to see happen in the case of the 1929-1935 National Bank Note issues. The project blossomed in 1970 with the encouragement of Glenn B. Smedley, then president of SPMC, and the re- sulting authorization by the Society's Board of Gover- nors to publish a volume entitled The National Bank Note Issues of 1929-1935 and to commission the writer to pre- pare and produce the work-study. The book when com- pleted was 212 pages in length and contained 367 illustra- tions of notes and related material, plus 22 tables and graphs; it was authored by Warns, Huntoon, and Van Belkum. The reference material therein is of inestimable value to the collector and researcher; it is aptly referred to as the "bible" covering the small size National Bank Note issues. A second printing of this publication took place in 1973, having been authorized the then-Society president, J. Roy Pennell, Jr., and the Board of Gover- nors. In Chapter 2, on pages 21 through 40, of this specializ- ed publication can be found a treatise by Peter Huntoon devoted to the new and different methods, procedures and equipment the Bureau of Engraving and Printing found necessary to install in the production of the new small size Nationals, i.e. the difference between type 1 and type 2 notes were a departure from the former num- bering systems employed on the old large size Nationals. The two new systems are shown as to how they function- ed as well as the many variations of the style of printer's type and space arrangement of the letters used in the format of the bank titles. Several pages of errors on notes found in general circulation are illustrated, etc. A prodigi- ous undertaking was the compilation of the 6994 banks that issued the 1929-1935 small size Nationals with their charter numbers, location and the denominations of the notes each bank issued. At the time the volume was pub- lished (1970), a total of 6263 different denominations had been reported from the 6994 issuing banks. (These are shown with an asterisk set at the right of the denomina- tions listed.) This section covering the notes is found in chapter 5, pages 115 through 191.

Notes reported for the first time in this supplement from previously unreported chartered banks are indicat- ed with an asterisk placed at the left of the charter num- ber. The uninterrupted reporting of these notes, now in its tenth year since the original publication appeared, has been rewarding to those members participating in this ex- tended search. They have been able to update the study with the addition of 4380 notes reported since 1970.

Valuations not shown in brackets are taken from a printed leaflet dated July 30, 1979 and issued periodically by the wholesale banknote dealing firm of Manfra, Tordella & Brookes, Inc. of New York; those in brackets are rough or indication rates quoted from a letter from the same firm dated July 26, 1979. Lesotho and Transkei, both within the geographic boundary of the Republic of South Africa, are planning to issue their own banknotes at par with the South African rand in the near future. Table I is particularly useful to collectors of current banknotes of the world as exchange rates for many smaller banknote - issuing countries are not generally quoted in printed listings available to the general public. This table is a good check-list for collectors desiring to form a collection of one or more banknotes from each country or monetary authority currently issuing them. Collectors should note that Benin (B), Ivory Coast (A), Niger (H), Senegal (K), Togo (T) and Upper Volta (C) use a common series of banknotes issued by Banque Central des Etats de l'Afrique de l'Quest (Central Bank of West African States). The banknotes for each member country differ only by a prefix letter (given above in brackets after each country) in the upper right lower left corners. It should be noted that the value one receives from any bank or dealer that purchases foreign banknotes is less than the same firm's selling rate and depends on a number of factors: supply and demand, stability of cur- rency, and ease of convertibility being some of the more important ones.

Paper Money Page 349 Making Bank Note Paper in Britain Literature Review Please send literature for review to Paul T. Jung, 174 Artillery Loop, Ft. Sam Houston, TX 78234 or to the Editor. SPMC member Richard Kelly, responding to the article "How Making Bank Note Paper Was Established in Canada" in Paper Money No. 79, has submitted a photo- copy of a similar article on manufacturing Britain's bank note paper which appeared in the Financial Guardian, Sept. 19, 1978. It deals with "Portals," the sole supplier to the Bank of England. According to the article, it "dominates the world market for bank note and security paper." The firm was founded by Henri Portal, a Huguenot re- fugee who escaped from France hidden in a wine cask. He began to supply the Bank of England in 1724 without a formal contract, and to this day there is no such agree- ment. However, the Bank bought into the company in 1949 when the last of the family shareholders died and now holds 30%. The Bank of England estimates that the average life of a one pound note is between nine and ten months, with five pound notes lasting about 17 months, ten pound notes for just under three years, and twenty pound notes surviving for about four years. Nationalism has led several countries to set up their own bank note paper making operations. In 1966, Portals built a mill for the Indian government at Honshanabad and a smaller one at Karachi for the Pakistan govern- ment. The cotton and linen which Portals buys is essentially other people's waste. Through its Union Fibres subsidi- ary it buys textile companies' cotton comber waste. And it also uses woven cloth, usually in the form of offcuts, provided it contains no synthetic fibres. An unusual but important source of supply is the U.S. Postal Service. Portals has a contract to buy all its cotton mail bags once these have reached the end of their work- ing life. The bags, made of an exceptionally strong cotton, are ideally suited to Portals' needs. However, this source is dwindling as the Postal Service switches to lightweight Terylene bags to cope with the increasing transportation of internal U.S. mail by air. Portals also recycles all its own waste bank note paper — trimmings, imperfect runs, etc. This also helps solve a security problem. The advent of photocopies capable of producing superb colored copies on both sides of a piece of paper have un- derlined the importance of perhaps the greatest of the paper maker's arts — the watermark. But Portals is pinning great commercial hopes on the development of new uses for another security device — the metal strip or thread first introduced into British notes by Chamberlain in 1937. The group has developed machine readable security threads and, in an unusual move for a security-minded company that likes to keep its secrets to itself, it has even patented its product. The most essential ingredient in reviewing books is the book itself. If no books are received, no reviews can be written. Authors and publishers are urged to send copies of their works as soon as they are available. Collectors need, and many are avidly looking for, reference material. One of the best ways to bring new publications to their attention is to have a review of it appear in this column. This month's column would have ended with the above sentence were it not for the fortuitous receipt of three books donated to the SPMC Library by one of our more supportive members. Since they are only tangental to the subject of paper money they will be only be briefly noted. Moody, J. Carroll & Fite, Gilbert C. the Credit Union Movement, Origins and Development, 1850-1970.

($1.21) (Both available from CUNA Supply Corporation, P.O. Box 333, Madison, Wisconsin 53701) The book by Moody and Fite is the only overall history on this subject that has been published. The authors devote one chapter to the development of credit unions and the cooperative credit movement from it origins in Germany and tis subsequent spread to Italy and Canada. The rest of the work is devoted to a history of the movement in the United States as it was developed through efforts of Edward A. Filene, noted Boston merchant, and Roy F. Bergengren, from 1909 to the present day. This is not a text in economics or a study of the operation of credit unions from a financial viewpoint. It is an excellent history of credit unionism as a social movement. Thoroughly researced, the work illuminates a hitherto unexplored area of American history. Brann's book is a compilation of historical articles which appeared originally in The Credit Union Magazine combined with a series of documents, letters and illustrations not previously published. Its stated purpose is to make readers aware of the importance of preserving the documentation of the various local and national movements. It accomplishes this purpose by presenting several engaging and interesting stories relating to the development of credit unionism. Barzman, Sol Credit Early America.

As a beginner, I have been looking for some set of guidelines in grading obsolete currency. It does not seem that there is much of a consensus when grading is being considered and the only system I have found for old currency is that devised by Grover Criswell. If possible, please refer me to a possible grading system so that I may buy more intelligently. It would help other beginners if an interim grading system could be published by Paper Money. Thank you for considering my request. RB, N. Vernon, IN. ANSWER: At the present time, grading is probably the most abused area of both numismatics and syngraphics. Until recently (last four-five years), the grading of paper money was not all-important, as the prices placed on paper money did not warrant the exactness of grading as did those of coins. With the recent surge of interest in the field of paper money, grading can be very critical to the price of a note and in some instances mean the difference of several hundred dollars or more from one grade to another. Today, collectors have to be very careful that they know exactly what they are getting when they make a purchase. What an unfortunate situation it would be to find out at some future time that the Crisp Uncirculated, 1901, $10.00, "Bison" note purchased for $1500.00 is actually worth only $800.00 because in reality it is only an About Uncirculated note! Grading of paper money, whether it be large size, small size, obsolete, fractional, etc., should technically be done by a uniform system. The following scale appears to be the most popular in use today and has been derived (by the author) from those advertised by several of the largest and most reputable U.S. paper money dealers: GEM CRISP UNCIRCULATED: Perfectly bright, crisp, and centered (design). No stains, tears, pinholes, folds or creases, ageing, soil or smudges, or other defects whatso- ever. Corners and edges sharp and clean. Absolutely no signs of circulation. Quality that can be equalled but not surpassed. Notes of this quality are seldom available and are genuinely scarce. CHOICE CRISP UNCIRCULATED: Very nearly of GEM quality. All features of the note will be well above average. Centering may be slightly off-center. May not be as fully bright as GEM. Absolutely no signs of circu- lation. Still an exceptional note. CRISP UNCIRCULATED: No folds, pinholes, tears, stains, or other defects. No signs of circulation. Centering may be off-center; color may not be fully bright, or both. Fairly bright and fully crisp. UNCIRCULATED: A note that has never been in actual circulation, but through the years has not been cared for properly.

Paper Money Interest Hearin Notes :V:" This issue of Paper Money marks the beginning and ending of many events concerning the Society's programs and activities. There are many excellent opportunities which exist for continued and accelerated growth and development of our Society. Bob Medlar and the other outgoing officers have left us in excellent financial and membership positions, as you will note elsewhere in this issue. The new Executive Board is pledged to take fullest advantage of these strengths and to eliminate, where possible, any weak points which we may have. To do this effectively, however, we need each and every- one of you to be involved. If there are areas of SPMC's activities and programs which you like, let me know. We'll try our level best to make sure that they remain in topnotch shape. If there are some areas which you feel are weak, neglected, or poorly administered, let me know. We'll see to it that your comments are investigated and that corrective action is taken if necessary. The coming year will find us placing renewed emphasis on our regional meetings program. Current plans call for at least one such meeting in the Northeastern, South- eastern, Western, and Midwestern regions of the United States during the next seven months. Major efforts are also being made to increase our visibility and recognition among the general collector population. To keep you better informed of upcoming events, we have also instituted, beginning with this issue, a "Coming Events" page which will be used for the sole purpose of keeping you informed about future SPMC activities such as regional meetings, Memphis and ANA activities schedules, new book releases, and so forth. We hope that this will eliminate the necessity of searching for such announcements which tend to get tucked away into obscure corners of the magazine due to their short length. This issue is the final one you will receive before dues again become payable at the end of the year. Dues for 1980 will remain at $10.00 and represent one of your best investments in the hobby of paper money collecting. PLEASE pay your dues promptly when you receive your notice in the mail. We then need not make expensive and time consuming follow-up mailings. In closing, I earnestly solicit your support in the following areas: New Member Recruitment — We have plenty of appli- cation blanks available from Del Beaudreau! Cer- tainly you must have at least one collecting friend who would enjoy joining us. Articles for Paper Money — We can only publish what you send us. Why not contact Barbara Mueller today to work out an article on your favorite subject. We'll all appreciate your effort. Although Page 351 we do not pay for articles which are published, yearly awards are made for the best articles to appear in our journal. Contact with the Officers — Please let us know about your thoughts, ideas, suggestions and yes, even complaints. Let's work together to make SPMC an even better organization than it is today. We would like to extend to each and everyone of you best wishes during the upcoming Christmas and New Year holidays. HUMAN DIMENSION continued from page 335 Almost every resident had entrusted his savings to Andrews. Almost every business depended on the Washington County National Bank. The cornerstone of the community was ripped asunder. The faith of citizens in their leaders was shattered. Andrews, who had been held in the highest honor and esteem, became a pariah in the community. His world was in ruins. Thus it was that on Monday morning, June 19, 1878, after one last walk downtown, he went to the hay loft in the barn behind his house and committed suicide by hanging himself from the rafter. His death brought to the people of the community a sense of sorrow and a feeling of compassion. They had admired Edwin Andrews all their lives. They feared that perhaps their harsh judgement publicly voiced had prompted him to end his life. There was sincere mourning in the village. As for the bank, the stockholders did make restitution in part to their creditors, but the bank never reopened. It was not until three years later, in 1881, that Greenwich had a bank again. In that year the First National Bank of Greenwich was established, and it continued to serve the community for 92 years until in 1973 it was sold to Chemical New York Corporation. As for the Whipple-Mowry-Holmes dynasty, the failure of the bank ended their prestige and they never again figured prominently in the business and political affairs of the village. IN MEMORIAM Thomas F. Mason, SPMC 2423 Thomas F. Mason, 62, of Cheyenne, Wyoming, died while attending the ANA convention in St. Louis on August 1st. A pharmacist by profession, he sold his busi- ness which he had operated since World War II when his interest in numismatics prompted him to open a coin shop called the Frontier Mint. Active in local and state coin clubs, he served on the U.S. Assay Commission in 1970. W. J. Brady, SPMC 1770 "Bill" Brady of Las Vegas, Nevada, died at the age of 64 less than two weeks after returning from the Memphis show. He was founder and past president of the Silver State Coin Club. According to Chuck O'Donnell, Bill Brady led an interesting life on the fringes of show busi- ness and later represented a firm in Las Vegas which installed felt covers on the gambling tables there. Page 352 Whole No. 84 MEET YOUR NEW OFFICERS Wendell Wolka President Wendell has been a member of SPMC since 1971. He has served in a number of capacities, including Governor, Book Project Chairman, Nominating Committee Chair- man, and Librarian. He has also served in the past as a member of the Awards and Nominating Committees. A number of organizations count him as a member, in- cluding the American Numismatic Association, Check Collectors Round Table, Essay-Proof Society, Indiana Historical Society, and International Bank Note Society. Wendell, as he puts it, "collects a little bit of every- thing", with main interests centering on obsolete notes and scrip, especially of Indiana. The Society's latest pub- lication, Indiana Obsolete Notes and Scrip, was co- authored by him. Other interests include Civil War frac- tional scrip notes, bank building view post cards, and paper horsecar tickets and passes. Toss in a general interest in obsolete notes from other midwestern states, and you can see where the "little bit of everything" comes from! Outside interests include bowling, choral singing, and Purdue University football. Labeling himself a "zealot ", Wendell notes that he has not missed a Purdue game, eit- her home or away, for nearly eight years since he grad- uated from the Indiana institution. This fall weekend pursuit plus a job which requires a heavy travel schedule make Wendell a little difficult to track down sometimes. However, he urges you to contact him regarding any questions, comments, or problems which you might have regarding SPMC. Larry is a document examiner and forensic consultant in Boone, Iowa, where he has lived nearly all his life. Larry's collecting interests are wide, with a specialty in local National Bank Notes, bank history, checks and tokens, with a general interest in paper money, banking, stocks and bonds, checkwriters, and security printing. He maintains an extensive reference library on numismatics, document examination, forensic science, graphic arts, banking, history, research, and related subjects.

Larry is editor of Trail Tales for the Boone County His- torical Society and a longtime board member. He helped to organize the Mamie Eisenhower Birthplace Foun- dation Inc. and presently serves as board member and historian. A lecturer on paper money and checks, Larry is pre- sently in charge of the CCRT check slide program. He has contributed articles to Paper Money, The Check List, and Collectors News. Del Beaudreau Secretary A.R. "Del" Beaudreau is by profession a realtor — a member of the Rhode Island Association of Realtors, the Providence Board of Realtors and an Associate of De- Felice Realtors, Rhode Island's largest real estate firm. He has been active in numismatics since childhood, a member of many coin clubs and organizations in New England for many years and has held membership in ANA since 1957. Currently he collects large size U.S. notes by type to the $20 denomination and also has a burning desire to complete his Korean banknote collection. In 1960, at the ANA convention in Boston, while a small group of enthusiastic paper money collectors was discussing plans for a paper money oriented society Larry Adams Vice President Paper Money Page 353 (which eventually became SPMC), Del was in another sec- tion of the same hotel lobby busily formulating plans for a publication to disseminate to interested collectors the results of on-going research and new discoveries in the field of U.S. colonial coins. As a result of this effort and with the cooperation of Kenneth Bressett, Al Hoch and Phil Greco, the Colonial Newsletter had its founding; it is currently in its 20th year of publication. From 1963 to 1968, Del owned and operated a full time coin shop business, Colony Coin Shop, and conducted public coin and stamp auctions. In 1971, along with R.J. Balbaton, he founded Doric Publishing Co., Inc. with the purpose of designing and marketing numismatic acces- sories for the collector. One of the most successful items to be produced was the line of Phoenix currency albums pages and mounts. They revolutionized the existing cur- rency album industry and are today the most popular and widely used. Del sold his interest in Doric Publishing Co. in 1976. Del and his wife Peggy have been married 27 years and are proud parents of four teenagers - Mark, Debra, Michelle and Lynn. Roger H. Durand was born in Central Falls, R.I., on March 24, 1935. He was brought up in the surrounding of Rhode Island and Massachussetts area. His advanced education is in the insurance and accounting fields. He at- tended the University of Rhode Island and Bryant Col- lege. He has been employed by the John Hancock Insur- ance Co. for over 20 years and has owned his own insur- ance agency almost as long. He has been married for some 25 years and he and his wife Clair have four children - Roger, Christopher, Karen and Timothy. They are all coin collectors and each has his or her own numismatic interests. Roger has been interested in numismatics for two decades and has specialized in paper, specifically obsolete bank notes, for the past 12 years. He is past president of the Pawtucket Numismatic Society, past president and acting president of the Western R.I. Coin and Stamp Association, a charter member of the Currency Club of New England, ANA 80403, TAMS 870, Essay-Proof Society 1421, and a member of the New England Numismatic Association. He received the First Literary Award given by SPMC for his article appearing in Paper Money for 1977. He has currently completed the Rhode Island book which will be published shortly. Roger's interest in SPMC centers on the expansion of the society through the education of the public to the wonders and excitement of delving into history through paper money.

Memphis exhibition chairman Martin Delger (L) receives honorary life membership in the Memphis Coin Club from Mike Crabb for his work at the June show. SPMC AT MEMPHIS by Wende Traditionally, the Memphis International Paper Money Show and American Numismatic Association Convention have been the locations of the Society's major activities for the year. This year proved no exception. The International Paper Money Show proved to be the most successful show which your Society has enjoyed to date. At its meeting on Thursday, June 14th, the Executive Board learned that the Society would experience a sizable membership gain of around 85 members. John Ferreri, the Society's Treasurer, was also able to report that the Society would probably end up its June 30th fiscal year in the black. All other programs that the Society is involved with also were reported as being well under control and progressing nicely. The Society's information and membership table was a beehive of activity with books, the Society's first com- memorative souvenir card, memberships, and banquet tickets all being offered to eager convention goers. "Eager" was the word as nearly 2500 souvenir cards and 600 books were sold. Twenty-two new members were also signed up at the show. The Society's Saturday night banquet was attended by 240 persons, which is one of the largest crowds we have had in recent years. An interesting presentation on counterfeiters by Murray Teigh Bloom capped off the evening's activities. SPMC President Bob Medlar "celebrated" our Memphis accomplishments by undergoing heart bypass surgery on July 12th. While this surgery was successful and Bob is now well down the road to full recovery, things were temporarily thrown into disarray as far as our ANA activities in St. Louis a scant two and a half weeks later were concerned. Under Vice-President Eric Newman's direction, everything was quickly put back together again and virtually all of our meetings and other functions came off without a hitch. The Executive Board learned at its July 30th meeting in St. Louis at the ANA Convention that the net membership gain for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1979 was actually 115, the best gain in a number of years. The Society had a tremendous year financially, with a net operating profit of just over $7,000. Most of this gain came as a result of souvenir card sales. The major event of the board meeting was a presentation by the Camden Company of Camden, South Carolina concerning the production and printing of PAPER MONEY. Krause Publications' request to be relieved of the typesetting responsibilities and the complex logistics associated with having two firms involved in the production of the magazine prompted the Board to solicit such a proposal at their meeting in Memphis in June. A general membership meeting was held on Tuesday, July 31, where it was announced that Bob Medlar, Mike All photographs courtesy of COIN WORLD and Fred Reed) I. Canadian Numismatic Association President Jack Veffer purchases one of the SPMC souvenir cards from Mrs. Mike Crabb. Paper Money Page 355 AND ST. LOUIS, 1979 11 Wolka Crabb, Stephen Taylor, C. John Ferreri, and Richard Jones had been elected to three-year terms on the Board of Governors. Immediately after this general membership meeting, the Executive Board met and elected Wendell Wolka as President, Larry Adams as Vice-President, Del Beaudreau as Secretary, and Roger H. Durand as Treasurer. In addition, the Board authorized the new President to conclude arrangements with the Camden Company for printing the Society's magazine, PAPER MONEY, during 1980. The Awards Banquet on Tuesday, July 31st, found around 120 people enjoying Eric Newman's after-dinner talk on "Numismatic River Boating on the Mississippi". After the presentation of a number of awards, the audience had the pleasure of participating in a fabled "Tom Bain Raffle", which had nearly $3000 worth of material and enough lots so that nearly everyone in the audience had the opportunity to take something home. The joy of this annual treat was somewhat tempered by Tom's announcement that this would be his last raffle, as he has some other projects which are demanding in terms of time which he wants to complete. Memphis show auctioneers Dean Oakes (L) and John Hickman admire a Series 1875 $5 on the Wyoming National Bank of Laramie City, Wyoming Territory, the second crisp uncirculated note cut from "the most desirable and exciting sheet known." The note was purchased by Julian Leidman of Silver Spring, Md. for $11,500 and resold the following day to a midwestern collector for $12,500. Outgoing SPMC President Bob Medlar (L) presents Memphis Coin Club President Robert Johnson and show chairman Mike Crabb a $500 check to help defray the club's expenses at the event. Guest speaker Murray Teigh Bloom studies his notes in the foreground. Memphis exhibition chairman Martin Delger (R) discusses his task with Virginia collector Lawrence K.

Paper Money Featured in Time/Life "Collectibles" Series In the volume of Time/Life books Encyclopedia of Collectibles covering oak furniture to pharmacist's equipment, the cover feature essay is a survey of paper money by former SPMC President George Wait. An assortment of obsolete notes is illustrated of colonial and continental notes, old large size, scrip, Confederates, fractionals, vignettes, errors, notgeld and foreign. Our Society is listed as the preferred collector's organization and our journal as one of the two recommended periodicals. Another former SPMC prexy, J. Roy Pennell, Jr., is listed as a consultant for the volume along with Dougles Ball, SPMC 1675. Craig Collection of U.S. MPC Sold for $5,000 At the auction conducted by World Currency Associates, Inc. at the 1979 Memphis International Paper Money Show, the Freeman L. Craig, Sr. collection of U.S. military payment currency sold as a lot for $5,000. According to the auctioneer's catalog, "To our knowledge this is the first time a complete collection of U.S. military currency has been offered in a public auction. " The Craig collection consisted of the complete series of MPC's beginning with Series 461 (first issue, 1946) through Series 692 (Vietnam era, 1970), a total of 91 pieces which includes $1 notes having both right and left block numbers for Series 481. Condition ranged from CU to Fine, with the superior grades being found in the 611, 641, 651, 661, 681, and 692 series. The earlier series were available only in lesser grades for the most part; for instance, the $10 Series 591 graded Fine with two tears, one repaired with glue. Mr. Craig began to collect the items in 1950 when he was stationed with the military in the Far East. He completed the collection in 1973.

Whyborn, 13806 Crested Point Dr., San Antonio, TX 78217. 16110111fili OPUS From The New York Mercury, Wednesday, April 25, 1832: Police. — A notorious forger of counterfeit bills, named John Van Atter, was arrested on Saturday even- ing by Mr. Hays, and some of the officers, at his residence in Anthony Street near the Five Points. His house being searched nothing could be found; but at the dwelling of his mother-in-law in Broome Street, Mr. Sparks disinter- red an old shoe which contained $346, in bills of the Mer- chants Bank and North River Bank of this city, Sussex Bank and Commercial Bank of New Jersey, the Utica Bank, and the Phoenix Bank of Hartford. Submitted by Charles E. Straub Interesting gleanings from early publications Page 360 Whole No. 84 BARBARA R. MUELLER The Buck Stops Her Editorials are supposed to deal with weighty, momentous issues of mutual concern in our hobby and SPMC. But this month I am going to use the editorial opportunity to sound off about a few things that have been plaguing both you — the members — and me — the editor — in the hope of creating better understanding and tolerance of this magazine's operation. We should always bear in mind the fact that SPMC is a non-profit organization only one-twentieth the size of a group like ANA and therefore cannot possibly offer the efficient services of an ANA. If you study the annual report of ANA, you will see that in addition to a full-time editor, three assistants are employed in the various productions phases. Moreover, all of these people are located at ANA headquarters where assistance of other numismatic porfessionals and access to the library are immediately available. Local typesetting services make possible close supervision of copy as it pfogresses to proof form and beyond. A large press run prompts the printer to assign an account representative to The Numismatist to smooth the way to perfection. In contrast, this magazine is produced on a part-time basis by one person with absolutely no editorial or secretarial help. The editor performs all functions, right down to collecting advertising accounts. Up to the present, typesetting and negative preparation have been done at Iola, Wisconsin, a couple of hundred miles away from Jefferson. Printing has been done in Federalsburg, Maryland. The opportunities for diaster with such logistics should be obvious. However, beginning with the January/February 1980 issue, all typesetting, layout and printing will be done by The Camden Co. of Camden, S.C., former publisher of The Bank Note Reporter. Hopefully, this consolidation of production facilities will eliminate many of the snafus that have marred our magazine in the past. But I ask your indulgence — particularly you authors and advertisers — for the shakedown period during the first half of 1980 under this new regime. There will be a lot of "bugs" to be worked out of our schedule until things are running smoothly. But we all feel that the end product will be worth your patience. (Meanwhile, remember that all advertising and editorial correspondence should be funneled through me as usual. Do not, repeat, do not correspond with The Camden Co.; that will only delay matters. If your problem involves recipt or non-receipt of the magazine and dues, contact the Secretary; if it involves extra copies or back issues, contact the Publisher.) I personally am hoping that under the new system I will have better control over proof and content. Presently I count myself fortunate if I get to see any proof at all. If I do receive first proof, and mark up corrections, etc., I never see second proof; I never khow whether the indicated changes were made until I get my copy of the magazine. Perhaps this will explain to some of you the dreadful errors and lapses in recent issues. A case in point is the butchery of Peter Huntoon's study of mules and changeover pairs in the July issue. The illustrations were cropped without my permission; the figure numbers were arbitrarily removed from the captions. I am telling you this not to absolve myself but to protect Mr. Huntoon from unjust criticism and the censure of his peers. And finally, while I am on this complaining binge, I have a grievance of my own to register against some users of the Money Mart. At 5d a word, you know SPMC is not getting rich on this feature. Therefore we cannot enter into correspondence regarding these ads. We can- not accede to such requests as "please advise what issue this will appear in" or "let me know when my insertion expires ". If your copy is received after the deadline for a give issue, rest assured the ad will appear in the following issue. And the little numbers in parentheses at the end of an ad indicate the whole number of the last issue in which the ad will appear. This is issue no. 84; thus an (84) at the end of an ad indicates that it is expiring with this issue. There, with these matters out in the open I hope to take a more positive note in future editorials. We may not be the largest organization in numismatics as a whole but we want to be number one in the syngraphic specialty. To that end we all must cooperate on a fraternal basis.

Hilliard, 1977, 124 pp., Gift of the author This book is a great aid to those people who collect Nationals from the states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. All National Banks are listed first by state, then by county, then by town, and finally by charter number. This book greatly simplifies an interesting way to collect Nationals — by county. It's worth your time. Everything which follows forms the largest single donation of material ever given to the Library. One of our faithful members, Joe Kinney of Los Angeles, has given each of you the opport- unity to use his entire paper money library as a result of his generous gift. As you will note, it is a pleasing combination of much needed extra copies of standard works, scarce out-of - print volumes, and auction catalogs and pricelists of rare cur- rency. A heartfelt "Thank You!" hardly seems adequate. DUPLICATE COPIES OF EXISTING SPMC LIBRARY HOLDINGS The Rag Picker, Journal of the Paper Money Collectors of Michi- gan.

Merrign Jr., St. Barnabas Medical Center, Livingston, NJ 07039 (87) LITERATURE REVIEW Continued from page 349 narrative discusses the use of personal credit in colonial times and the issuance of currency (i.e. credit instruments) by the colonies. The work continues through the Revolutionary War, the founding of the 1st and 2nd Banks of the United States, and ends with the Panic of 1837 out of which arose the first credit institution in the U.S. — The Mercantile Agency — which late became Dun and Bradstreet. Barzman fills his story with incidents and anecdotes that help bring history alive — Patrick Henry and the "Parsons" cause, Valley Forge, Shays' Rebellion, the Whiskey Rebellion, and Jackson's anti- banking actions. All of this is nice background information and aids in the understanding of the development of banking and currency system in America. This is certainly not an in-depth treatise, nor was it intended to be such. It is an enjoyable, well written pastische of historical events, nicely strung together and easily read. As a brief sketch of early American financial history it should appeal to many who would like a general introduction to the subject or some light collateral reading. Recommended.

It doesn't surprise us because we must modestly submit to you. that we have taken painstaking efforts. under the direction of Dr. Douglas B. Ball. to "catalogue" not list currency when it comes into our offices for sale at public auction. It is no secret that in the last two years we have had the privilege of selling currency collections belonging to Professor M. Clinton McGee, The Rhode Island Historical Society. The Maryland Historical Society, The Bristol Historical Society, The Westerly Public l,ibrary, Mr. George Hatie — Vice President of the American Numismatic Association, The New England Obsolete Bank Note Collection (formerly the property of Q. David Bowers). The Jack Guevrekian Collection of Obsolete Currency, The Paul Garland Collection of Confederate. State Notes and Bonds. The Sidney L. Olson Collection of Palestine and Israel Currency. Colonial Currency from the collections of Mr. Thomas Fitzgerald, the late Charles J. Affleck, and Philip H. Chase. In addition, there are dozens and dozens of other consitmors who have chosen NASCA to sell their currency. YOU MUST CONSIDER QUALITY & PRICES REALIZED RATHER THAN NUMBERS OF SALES WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE POSSIBLE SALE OF YOUR CURRENCY WHAT WILL ALL OF THIS COST? Much has been said in the last few months in the numismatic press about. "Reasonable Commission Rates." "Competitive Commission Rates." "Very Low Commission Rates, - etc., etc., etc. As we have previously stated, NASCA's commission rates are not just competitive — they are the lowest, most favorable commission rates available in the United States. Combined THE SOPHISTICATED SELLER KNOWS! If you are as sophisticated as we think you are, you will make allowances for some of the rhetoric that appears occasionally and recognize that such apparently conflicting claims are essentially correct. After all, talent, research, financial resources, honesty and competent promotional and advertising staffs are not the monopoly of any one firm or any region in our business. The same is true of each firm's ability to get top prices; for the numismatic market place is most assuredly international and collectors and stealers will pay as much for a desirable coin in one place as another, depending upon the market prices of the day. REMEMBER THESE IMPORTANT FACTS in the past 18 months NASCA has had the privilege of selling, at record prices and for the lowest commission rates in the country, numismatic material from the collections of the following valued consignors; Professor M. Clinton McGee, The Rhode Island Historical Society, The Maryland Historical Society, The Bristol Historical Society, The Westerly Public Library, Mr. George Hatie — Vice President of the American Numismatic Association, The New England Obsolete Bank Note Collection (formerly the property of Q. David Bowers), the Wayte Raymond Collection, Sidney L. Olson, Robert Weiss, Mr. Thomas Fitzgerald, not to mention material from the collections or estates of the late Charles J. Affleck and Philip H. Chase; and hundreds and hundreds of other consignors. with these low commission rates are all of the fine attributes that the reputable auction firms in the country also offer.

This is a complete set and in superb condition - several sets are known heavily worm-holed, but this set is mint. It is attractively housed in a custom- made white plastic holder. The individual notes have a total catalog value of $4000.00 in average condition. This charming and his- torically important set 4650.00 2a $20. 1879 Silver Certificate, Series A.

HODGES' AMERICAN BANK NOTE SAFE-GUARD by Edward M. Hodges 1865. 350 pp Cloth bound. 1977 reprint by Pennell Publishing Co. $19.50 postpaid. "Hodges' " as this book is known, contains descriptions of over 10,000 genuine notes from 30 states, 19 Canadian banks, and the United States notes issued prior to 1865. This 1865 edition was copyrighted in 1864 and at this time the United States was at war with the Confederate States. As a result the listing for six Southern states was not included because they were not a part of the United States. Louisiana was included as in 1864 it was occupied by Union troops under the infamous General Butler. West Virginia was added to this edition as it seceded from Virginia and join the Union in 1863. We have added a section from the 1863 edition (copyrighted in 1862) containing the six states deleted from the 1865 edition making this reprint the most comprehensive Hodges' ever printed. The format used consists of three rows of ten notes listed in rectangles on each page. To quote from E.M. Hodges "The SAFEGUARD is almost indispensable." Collectors will agree with him. We bound 10 copies in genuine leather and interleaved them with plain paper (for your own notes) and offer them subject to prior sale for $75.00 each. THE BANK OF THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA by Dr. F. Mauldin Lesesne 1970. 221 pp Hand bound. University of South Carolina Press $14.95 postpaid. The South had many colorful banks prior to the Civil War, but few could compare with the Bank of the State of South Carolina. From its charter in 1812 until 1881 when its history ended, it was colorful, controversial, and redeemed its issued notes. The "faith and credit" of the State of South Carolina was pledged to back this bank. Dr. Lesesne's account of this bank is interesting reading to both collector of paper money and historical students. Few banks have such detailed accounts of their life as the Bank of the State of South Carolina. The book is annotated and has a wonderful bibliography. If you only read one bank history, and should read this one as it will interest both South Carolinians and non-Carolinians alike. It is just an excellent story of a very important bank.
