OB-OST Notes Used In Lithuania By John Glynn INTRODUCTION On June 28, 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of Austria/Hungary, was assassinated by Gavile Princip, a Serbian nationalist student, while on a visit to Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia. The shot was heard around the world and plunged Europe into a civil war, which eventually included other continents throughout the globe. By August of the same year Europe became a battleground. The strength of the central powers of Austria/Hungary and Germany was too much for the allies of France and Russia. Germany and her military power advanced almost at ease through Russia. By September 1915, Lithuania and her Baltic neighbors (Estonia and Latvia) and other eastern European countries which were ruled by Tsarist Russia were occupied by the German military force. The German military authorities in accordance with their usual practice pillaged and severely ravaged the land, confiscating farm produce and causing extreme poverty and damage. Due to the military mishandling, the Lithuanian economy collapsed in less than six months. EARLY HISTORY OF THE AREA Lithuania originated between the 5th and 6th century A. D. when a group of people occupied the provinces of Kaunas (Kowno), and Vilnius (Wilno), Suvalkai (Suvalki), Gardinas (Grodno) and land along the Neminas (Nieman) River. These people known collectively as Liths became one of the largest independent nations in medieval times. In 1385, Lithuania and her neighbor Poland through marriage reached an alliance which lasted intil 1569, when under the union of Lublin, Lithuania lost her independence and shared her common history with Poland. During this period the united countries persisted to make up the most splendid chapter in their history. The most important event was the glorious victory over the German order of the Teutonic Knights, when in 1410 in the battle of Grunwald at Tannenburg (East Prussia), Vytautas the Great, Grand Duke of Lithuania, and his cousin Jogaila, king of Poland, joined forces to defeat the powerful Teutonic Order. The union with Poland lasted over 400 years and ended in 1795, when the big powers of Austria, Prussia and Russia annexed both nations, with Lithuania ...1c ca 114' ett, 6,■ fl .11.4 .11C Car =,*1,071 611 ..111C vta .214 ,.ya pY a..), n.,,imbia to7 ittmw b. yodr.■or. statotowap., ..)•mi • P.N. ••• ..brut, larmlym 44141)e.t.,m %Amy.. 4 ,2 emiu Situlinamosios kasos ienkla Penklasdesimts kaptika 1:31 IWO eMtliM, AMR.

OCCUPATION CURRENCY The currency in circulation in Lithuania at the outbreak of World War I was the Russian ruble, but with the German occupation the reichsmark was introduced. The German forces were trying to get the Lithuanian people to accept the German occupation currency as legal tender. A decree was proclaimed, which made the German mark equally acceptable with the Russian ruble. The exchange rate was 2.16 German mark to one Russian gold ruble, and 1.66 German mark for one paper ruble. The people were unwilling to part with the Tsarist ruble and they considered the currency better than the German mark, and therefore began hoarding it. The mark had no gold backing while each ruble had 0.775 grams of pure gold. In order to release the German mark from this occupied area, the German authority created its own imperial loan bureau. In April 1916, by special decree, the Supreme Commander of the Eastern Front (Oberbefehlshaber Ost) whose headquarters was in Kaunas, opened the Darlehnskasse Ost (Loan Bank for Trade and Industry). The function of the bank was to supply easy credit by making loans to merchants, and supplying a currency system. The bank issued a set of banknotes known as the ob-ost ruble (better known as the ost ruble) in Lithuania and other eastern countries. The object of the notes was to induce the people to trade their Russian rubles for the ost ruble or German mark. The official rate of exchange of the ost ruble was one ost ruble to one Russian ruble or two German marks. The Germans, however, implemented a program by withholding essential needs (salt, sugar, etc.) from the market. They were sold under the supervision of the military and could be purchased with the payment of gold only. The two-tier system of offering a higher exchange of German marks for Russian rubles was unsuccessful. On June 26 of the same year the German military authority authorized the first issue of occupation money in values of: Pick's Nos.

Back of 50 kopek note with incorrect text: Peezde mit kapeiki. The notes were dated Posen, April 17, 1916, and became legal tender in Lithuania on August 6 of the same year. The German military authorities issued 100,000,000 rubles and the money was authorised for removal from the country, provided valuables of precious metal, non-perishable goods and Russian rubles were deposited. The notes were therefore considered receipts, and the Lithuanian people labelled the currency "Fiat money". The fronts of the notes were printed in German while the backs were in three languages (Lithuanian, Latvian and Polish). Three signatures appeared on the notes. Two of the signatures were German (Kaufmann and Hamburger), while the third was Polish (Michalowsky), The reverse of the 20 kopek shows an incorrect text • odirtz oddoino4wiinnmoos kaso, lanktus ow, tdovolus podIrk. arcswiirbtait)(10 , ratus ,m:: Ir juci vorWinN skieialitt )ws kaOrdia Ott 14tWaid Mehl , .

"Peezde mit Kapeiki". The 50 kopek was issued in two series, one with the incorrect text and the other series with the correct text: "Peezde mit Kapeikas." Two series of the 50 kopek, and the 1 and 3 ruble were also issued with the misspelled word "Sime" (Sihme, a Latvian word meaning paper money, changed to Sime in 1921). The reverse of the bank notes states that they were issued by the "Territory of the Commander in Chief of the East" and that whoever falsified or imitated or put such notes in circulation would be punished with prison up to eight years. With the •unsuccessful attempt to get the Russian ruble converted to the ost ruble, the German Administration promised to redeem ost rubles with genuine Russian rubles put into circulation by the Darlehnskasse Ost, but this promise was retracted in March 1917. The German Military Authority decided to transfer the bank. On March 30,1917, the Darlehnskasse Ost in Posen, Poland, was moved to Kaunas, Lithuania, as an independent bank of issue. The bank issued new currency in ost marks comprising 100 pfennigs and equal to the German mark. The bank was backed by a loan of 100 million ost marks given by Germany. The ost ruble was replaced by the new currency in denominations of: PICK'S NOS.

This cumulative effort resulted in the publishing of the article "The Series of 1929 Notes From New Mexico" by Peter Huntoon and this writer in PAPER MONEY No. 83, September/October 1979. THE DISCOVERY With the recent discovery of a specimen of the series of 1929 National Currency that was issued by the National Bank of New Mexico, Raton, (8098), a search that has spanned a period of over twenty years is completed. The Type I, $20.00 denomination note bears the facsimile signature combination of A. C. Price as president of the bank, and that of D. E. Woodward as cashier. Only 87 sheets of the $20.00 denomination were issued by the bank prior to its voluntary liquidation on May 19, 1930. Alfred Colfax Price came to Raton in 1893 from Missouri and was a partner in the firm of Price, Lockard and Company that later became the Price Shoe and Clothing Company, of which Mr. Price served as president. Price was one of the organizers of the National Bank of New Mexico of Raton; he served as the vice-president upon its organization in 1906, and later as president until the bank was voluntarily liquidated. Newly-discouered National Bank of New Mexico at Raton note. Don Edward Woodward, born in Kansas, began his banking career at the First National Bank of Hansford, Texas, after serving as a 2nd Lieutenant in the 89th Infantry Division in France during World War II. He later served as cashier of the Perryton National Bank of Perryton, Texas, and came to New Mexico in 1922 to be the assistant cashier of the Raton bank. Woodward served in this position with the bank until 1928, at which time he became cashier. Upon the closing of the Raton bank in 1930, Mr. Woodward entered the insurance business in Raton and remained in this profession until 1940, at which time he accepted a position as vice-president with the First National Bank in Albuquerque (13814). The following year he was appointed to the bank's board of directors and in 1949 was promoted to the position of executive vice-president. Woodward was president of the First National for two years — 1962 to 1964 — and was president emeritus of the bank at the time of his death. Mr. Woodward was also active in the New Mexico Whole No. 93 Bankers' Association. He was the state vice-president for three years. A civic leader and banker in New Mexico for most of his life, Mr. Woodward contributed greatly to the state and banking in New Mexico. CORRECTION Since publication of the article regarding the 1929 issue of New Mexico National Bank Notes, another item has been brought to light that bears correction. This flagrant oversight involves the statement that "no woman's signature will be found on this issue by any of the New Mexico banks." Courtesy Joe Kinney New Mexico National Bank note (Farmington, 6183) with signature of a woman president. The signature of the president on the issues of the First National Bank of Farmington (6183) is, in fact, that of Mrs. Harriet B. Sammons who served in the capacity of the bank's president from 1922 to 1951. Mrs. Sammons was the sister of A. M. Amsden, one of the founders and cashier of the bank when it was organized in 1902. Mrs. Sammons joined the bank in 1907 as assistant cashier. She was a respected member of the Farmington community and contributed greatly to the development of the area through her many civic endeavors. Although three other women signed National Currency that was issued in New Mexico prior to 1929, Mrs. Sammons has the distinction of being the only woman who achieved the position of president of a New Mexico National Bank during the note issuing period, and who had her signature engraved on the 1929 issues of New Mexico currency. Charles C. Culpepper, whose signature as cashier also graces the 1929 series of notes issued by the Farmington bank, was a banker in New Mexico for most of his life. In 1921, Culpepper started his career with the Citizens National Bank of Albuquerque (11442), and in 1924 moved to Farmington to join the First National Bank of Farmington. Mr. Culpepper rose to the position of vice-president of the bank and served many years as chairman of the board. In 1952, he established the Farmington Investment Company and served as the institution's president. Mr. Culpepper served the Farmington community with distinction as well as the state of New Mexico as a member of the State Game Commission. (Continued On Page 145) Paper Money O/1. Ye "de/ Barbara R. Mueller, NLG Confirmation of a shake-out in collector stocks and bonds came in the Stanley Gibbons sale of March 6, 1981 held in New York. An advance press release stated that the realizations were expected to total at least $125,000; they came to $111,000 plus 10% buyer's premium. The most valuable item in the sale, a Chinese 500 pound sterling bond issued in 1898 for a 41/2% Gold Loan, countersigned by the Deutsche-Asiatische Bank of Berlin, which' sold for $1500 in September 1978 and $32,000 exactly two years later, brought only $14,000. Gibbons stated that only 20 of the original 100 numbered Chinese bonds are still in existence because the loan was 80% paid off before default. The second highest price in the sale was $7,500 paid for a 1912 Russian bond of 4,725 rubles issued by the city of Nikolaef. Bidding for American certificates was considered spirited at the March 6 sale, with most lots of U. S. material realizing above the pre-sale estimates. The highest price for an American item was $1,200 fetched by an 1878 certificate for 50 $100 shares of the Standard Oil Company, personally signed by company president John D. Rockefeller. A 1925 share in the Edison Phonograph Distributing Company, signed by Thomas A Edison, was sold for $475, nearly twice the $275 estimate. An 1872 certificate for 100 $50 shares in the New York and Harlem Rail Road Company, signed by W. H. Vanderbilt, realized $450. Bonds issued by several Southern states before and during the Civil War were also popular. An 1833 bond for $1,000 issued by the State of Mississippi went for New Mexico (Continued From Page 144) CONCLUSION Now that it is known that specimens of the 1929 issue of National Currency are available from each of New Mexico's National Banks that issued it, a spark of hope exists that it will eventually be possible for someone to obtain a complete collection of these notes by issuing bank. With several avid collectors of these New Mexico notes now known, it appears to be just a matter of time until this feat is accomplished. If the desert sun, a rattlesnake, or a mountain blizzard do not get to this author first, perhaps he will be the fortunate individual who completes the set. REFERENCES Reeve, Frank D., 1961.

A bond issued by the Confederate States of America in 1863 for a 7 percent cotton loan realized $325. Although relatively inexpensive, bonds and stock issued by various U. S. railroad companies with odd and colorful names were in great demand. An 1851 certificate for 47 $100 shares in the Georgia Rail Road and Banking Company went for $85, while an 1895 bond issued by the Brooklyn and Brighton Beach Railroad Company fetched $90. Also popular were 20th century certificates from several countries that featured art deco and art nouveau illustrations. Despite the recent rise in prices for antique stocks and bonds, many superbly engraved 19th century securities were sold for only $10 to $25 apiece to collectors more interested in aesthetic than financial rewards. Gibbons also held one of its "post-bid" auctions of bonds and shares in December 1980. Prices realized are not available, but the material offered was of more modest value than that seen in the sales with floor participation. Included in the same catalog was a fixed price list of similar items, including many U. S. railway items.

Pug(' 116 Whole No. 93 kv\‘ Washington Plate Printers Union 1981 Card Bureau of Engraving and Printing craftsmen have announced that a souvenir card was issued in conjunction with the 79th International Convention of the International Plate Printers, Die Stampers and Engravers Union of North America. The convention was held in Washington, D. C. during the week of May 17-23, 1981, and was hosted by the BEP locals. An artist's palette with a graver through it and the union seal on it is printed at the lower right corner with "79th Convention, Washington, D. C., 1981 printed in three lines at the bottom center of the card. The $2 note, all lettering and the artist's palette are printed in sepia. The figure of a printer and a proving press are depicted at the lower left corner of the card embossed in gold. The souvenir card was designed, engraved and printed by former and present BEP employees. It features an engraving of the face of a proposed $2 Treasury Note which was probably intended to be part of a new type legal tender issue. The engraving is unusual in that the entire surface of the face of the note is covered by the design. The theory behind this design approach was to foil counterfeiters by allowing for multiple details and line engraving techniques which would be difficult to duplicate. The note featured on the souvenir card is one of the first and best examples of this type of engraving produced at the BEP. The 8 1/2 x 11-inch card is entitled "International Plate Printers, Die Stampers and Engravers Union of North America." It was printed from a single-subject plate on a hand-fed, flat-bed intaglio press by retired Bureau printers. The hand-engraving lettering of the text reads: "This Treasury Note was engraved in the 1860's, during the early years of the BEP, by Joseph Prosper Ourdan The design, which was never issued, features the `Embarkation of the Pilgrims, 1620' by Robert W. Weir. The original painting is in the rotunda of our nation's Capitol." During the Sixth International Philatelic Exhibition (SIPEX) in 1966, a small surplus of multicolor "Washington Scenes" souvenir cards, originally printed and sold to craft members, was offered for sale to the public and quickly sold. Since that time collectors have shown an intense interest in the souvenir cards produced by the engravers and printers who make our nation's currency and stamps. A very limited edition of souvenir cards is normally printed for craft members only. These are sold to union members at their international conventions as a keepsake of the art of hand engraving and intaglio printing. Five thousand souvenir cards have been printed for the upcoming 79th International Convention in an effort to satisfy both craft members and collector interest and demand. The cards were offered for sale to the public on a first come, first served basis. They were priced at $8.00 each and were available at the NAPEX '81 Stamp Show held at the Marriott Twin Bridges Hotel in Washington, D. C., May 1-3, 1981. Cards were also available by mail, with a limit of five per customer, after April 15, 1981, at $8.00 per card, plus $1.00 per order to cover the cost of mailing. Mail sales were to be discontinued on May 15, 1981, or upon depletion of stock, whichever occured first. OAHU Interesting gleaningsfromearly publicationsby Charles E. Straub Paper Money Connecticut Courant, Hartford, Tues., Nov. 19, 1822: Counterfeiters caught. — A gang of counterfeiters have been taken at Wilmington, (Del.) who were carrying on the business in a wholesale manner. They occupied a dwelling-house on Quaker Hill. Being suspected, they were watched on a day appointed, and a part of them secured while on a journey; the house on Quaker Hill was next entered, where apparatus for accomplishing their trade was secured, and counterfeit notes found amounting to about 50,000 dollars, on the Banks of Wilmington, and Brandywine, Franklin Bank, of Baltimore, and the Bank of New Brunswick. The notes of the first mentioned Bank are for $20, of these they had 10,000 dollars; the others were chiefly fives and tens, and threes on the Brunswick, New Jersey Bank. A stamp for making half-dollars was found among their apparatus, and directions for taking out ink from notes. On one of those who was taken on the road, were the letters of the alphabet ingeniously wrought with wire, to make impressions on notes. The names of the men taken are Lyman, Pardee, Hance, or Hanson, and Heath; the woman's name is Maria C. Brian. One man and a woman escaped, but a party is in pursuit of them. — Daily Gaz. Connecticut Courant, Hartford, Tuesday, Sept. 10, 1822: From the Baltimore Morning Chronicle A gigantic and well disciplined system of villany has been detected and brought to light through the medium of the Post Office. A correspondence between the convicts in the Baltimore Penitentiary, and a number of persons in and out of the city, has for some time been carried on, by which means an organized system of counterfeiting and altering bank notes was established in the Penitentiary. Thirteen plates, or rather parts of plates, of five, ten, twenty and fifty dollar bills, for altering genuine notes of lower denominations were found. The genuine notes were furnished by one of the deputy keepers, who is now in confinement, and whose detection was owing to the letters being intercepted at the Post Office, and the dies and plates being found in a bag, which was stowed away in the loft of one of the departments. Four of the convicts were concerned in the transaction; one of whom cuts the dies, and the other three were employed in disseminating the spurious notes by letters, and receiving genuine ones in return. The notes that have been detected were principally on the Frederick County Bank. As measures are taken to Page 1.17 develop this plot more fully, and to punish those who are known to be accomplices, we shall wait the issue of the investigation. Connecticut Courant, Hartford, Tuesday, July 16, 1822: Article dated New Haven July 13 We have lately seen a One Dollar bill on the Middletown Bank, altered to a Ten. The plate was by the Graphic Company — letter B. payable to Timothy Green: the right margin was torn off. It passed through several hands in this city, and was so well done that the alteration could scarcely be discovered by the best judges. It is difficult to determine in what way the one in different parts of the bill was extracted, and ten inserted in its place. Five Dollar counterfeit bills on the Norwich Bank, have been passed in this city during the week. The engraving of these bills is extremely well done — they are made payable to C. P. Huntington, and dated June 3d, 1813. Connecticut Courant, Hartford, Tues, Feb. 12, 1822: The following article was found in the above news- paper dated New York Feb. 8. More Counterfeiting. — Yesterday afternoon, the police magistrates sent some of their officers out of town, with instructions to station themselves at the Harlaem Bridge and intercept a certain nortorious character of the name of Leverence, of whom, in some way, peculiar to themselves, the magistrates were pretty well satisfied would be coming into the city in the course of the evening, with a large amount of counterfeit money in his possession. At half past seven the officers arrived at their post, and by favour of the toll gatherer, had the gate closed, so that every carriage passing would be brought to a halt for a few seconds, while the officers might take observation. Between 10 and 11, and after a long succession of carriages of every description had passed, a waggon drove up with a single passenger. The officer who was standing sentry without, instantly recognized him by his voice, as he casually spoke to his driver, to be the fellow they had been waiting to escort in; and in a very little more than an hour he was brought down and underwent an examination before one of the magistrates, stripped of eight or nine thousand dollars in forged bills, of various banks and denominations, and snugly quartered in Bridewell. For the benefit of the public, we must not omit to mention that the sum found on him consisted of tens, of the Mechanic Bank, N. Y.; threes of the Hartford Bank, Conn., threes of the Central Bank, threes of the Washington Bank, R. I., and twos of the Orange County Bank. Of this latter description there were no less than 2270 bills. Leverence is an old offender, and well known as a wholesale dealer in the Canada trade. It is but a few years ago that he was sentenced to our state prison, from which he was pardoned out.

Box 30369, Cleveland, OH 44130, has submitted the illustrations of what philatelists would call "printer's waste" but what syngraphists call a "super error note".

C. 29622 SPONSORED BY INTERNATIONAL BANK NOTE SOCIETY CANADIAN PAPER MONEY SOCIETY Plans for our SPMC participation in INTERPAM 81, the International Paper Money Congress and Exhibition to be held at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto, Canada July 15-18, 1981 have been completed. Bill McDonald, chairman of the event, has given us the 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. time slot on Friday, the 17th, for our educational program. We will have an informational presentation first, telling visitors, especially those from Canada and overseas, what SPMC objectives and accomplishments are, emphasizing the fact that our interests go far beyond U. S. paper money only. The second part of the meeting will consist of a slide lecture on the genesis of American-style bank note design and production techniques and their role in the development of an international bank note aesthetic. Many SPMC members are supplying rare and unusual notes, essays and proofs for this presentation, with special emphasis on the first part of the 19th century. The theme will fit in nicely with the Congress exhibition which is to be arranged around paper money in the context of history and paper money as an art form. The meeting will be conducted by the editor, Barbara Mueller. Members desiring to participate or having suggestions for the meeting agenda are urged to contact her. Other scheduled INTERPAM activities include a Charlton auction and educational programs on paper money care, preservation and authentication. Bracketed as it will be by the June Memphis show and the late July ANA New Orleans convention, INTERPAM will offer syngraphists the opportunity to broaden their horizons, break out of national chauvinism, and achieve a more international orientation for their hobby.

(Continued On Page 154) Meet The Candidates (Continued From Page 152) National Bank Note issues of Arizona, Wyoming, and the territories, and also small size type notes. Huntoon has authored numerous articles and books on paper money, and his work appears regularly in PAPER MONEY under the banner "The Paper Column." Last year, the SPMC published TERRITORIALS - A Guide to U. S. Territorial National Bank Notes which he wrote for the Society. In 1970, he co-authored the SPMC book "The National Bank Note Issues of 1929-1935" with Van Belkum and Warns. Huntoon strongly supports the publication and educational programs of the SPMC, and has taken a long term personal stand against the doctoring of paper money by so-called restoration experts. However, the most important function he sees for SPMC is that it continue to bring collectors and dealers together where they can thoroughly enjoy each other and the hobby. Without the people, you may as well spend the notes. ROBERT THIEL Bob lives in Victor, New York, where he is foreman of the wood fabrication department of Eastman Kodak Company. In addition to his numismatic activities as a coin collector for 40 years and more recently of U. S. large size type notes and small size notes, he is active in bowling leagues and enjoys taking pictures of trains. A member of ANA and Paper Money Collectors of Michigan in addition to SPMC, he would welcome the opportunity to serve on our Board of Governor. STEVEN WHITFIELD Steve Whitfield is a career Engineer Officer in the United States Army. He attended Universities at Kingston, Rhode Island and Lawrence, Kansas, where he received advanced degrees in Civil Engineering and Business Administration. Inheriting the collector instinct from his father, he has collected everything from baseball cards to coins for more than thirty years. Working in a bank during the late 50's acquainted him with large size U. S. bank notes when many such notes were turned in for redemption. Most of those notes were sold to dealers for a dollar or two over face and the remainder had to be redeemed for college expenses. The late 60's rekindled an interest in paper and his current interests include Kansas obsolete notes and checks; small size U. S. type notes; souvenir cards; inexpensive world paper money; Bank of Whitfield notes; Canadian and U. S. stamps; financial history of Rhode Island and Kansas; and any bank related material from Lawrence, Kansas. His interests and efforts are mainly in learning as much as possible about the history of the notes and the men responsible for their issue and then sharing the information. He has written articles for Paper Money, the Bank Note Reporter and the Check List and recently received an SPMC Award of Merit for his work on the combined Indian Territory/Oklahoma/Kansas Obsoletes book.

C. Suggested operating procedures: The Awards Committee chairman will supply each committee member a copy of the guidelines for making awards.

The lists will be tabulated by the chairman and the winners chosen. A second ballot will be used to break any ties. D. Grading factors and scoring points: a. Readability and interest—Is the article interest- ingly written? (20 points) Is it understandable to someone not a specialist in the field?

Numismatic information conveyed—In your opinion, will the article be used by future stu- dents as a reference source? (20 points) Has the author documented and cross referenced his source material? Give credit for original re- search and depth of study. (20 points) Is the sub- ject a new one, not previously researched, or a rehash?

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.
