Paper Money Whole No. 114 Page 267 PRESENT HOME TOWN, HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA by Steven Whitfield The old bank appears the same today as it must have looked when it opened for business almost 150 years ago. BACKGROUND T HE pursuit of "local bank" notes holds a particularfascination for many paper money collectors. Being inthe military means a different "home town" every three years or so, this constantly opens up new opportunities for "local collecting." A few notes issued by the local banks are always attention get- ters and conversation openers at local coin shows, exhibits and club meetings. Therefore, one of the first things I do in a new town is to look up note issue information on the banks in the area and add any such notes to my want lists. The best reference materials for this purpose are: the new Hickman/Oakes book on all national issues, The National Bank Note Issues of 1929-1935, published in 1970 by the SPMC (with periodic up- dates on notes reported by Mr. Warns) and the SPMC updates of D.C. Wismer's obsolete note listings, or the originals that ap- peared in "The Numismatist." Armed with this data. I then review price lists and auction catalogues saved for the past fif- teen years to check on availability and price history of the local area notes. Sooner or later, the opportunity comes along to pur- chase a "local note." Since my present "home town" is Huntsville, the purpose of this article is to report on the paper money that was issued local- ly, along with some basic information on the banks and issuers and. hopefully, to stimulate the reporting of other data and notes that are still missing. Huntsville was founded in 1805 by John Hunt at the site of a natural spring in the Tennessee Valley of North Alabama. Orig- inally called Twickenham in honor of the home of British poet Alexander Pope, the town was eventually renamed in honor of its founder. In addition to being one of the first capitals of Alabama, Huntsville was the birthplace of several prominent Americans. Confederate cavalry leader John Hunt Morgan was born here along with Tallulah Bankhead, the famous daughter of U.S. Representative William Bankhead. In 1884 Frank James. Jesse's brother, was tried in a local courtroom for a federal payroll robbery that occurred near Muscle Shoals, Alabama in 1881. Remarkably, he was found not guilty, where- upon Minnesota and Missouri law officers promptly arrested him for other crimes. Huntsville remained a sleepy cotton town until just before World War II when the Redstone Arsenal ammunition plant was built a few miles southwest of the town. In 1950 the German rocket scientists, led by Werner Von Braun, were brought here from Texas to establish the beginnings of the U.S. space pro- gram that culminated in landings on the moon. Today NASA still maintains a presence, but the primary function of govern- ment effort in the local area is the U.S. Army's missile program. High tech industry has largely replaced the old agricultural based economy of the local area, although cotton and soybeans are still important products. Page 268 Paper Money Whole No. 114 BANKING IN HUNTSVILLE Since the note issue period ended in 1935 when national banks stopped issuing distinctive, bond secured paper money, the bank note era we shall be concerned with in Huntsville began in 1816 when the first bank was organized, and ended with the 1929 small note issues of two local national banks. With one or two exceptions, we shall concentrate only on the banks and private issuers that actually issued currency. The first bank in North Alabama was the "Planters and Mechanics Bank of Huntsville," chartered by the Mississippi Ter- ritorial Legislature on December 11, 1816. After Alabama Ter- ritory was formed from part of the Mississippi Territory, the General Assembly of the Territory of Alabama passed an act on February 13, 1818, which changed the title to the "Planters and Merchants Bank of Huntsville." This first bank in Huntsville had opened for business on October 17, 1817. On January 6, 1818, LeRoy Pope was elected president and Ben Cox became cashier. Directors included Clement C. Clay, father of Clement C. Clay, Jr., United States and Confederate States Senator whose portrait would later appear on the Confederate States $1 note; James Manning, whose son would issue scrip in Hunts- ville during the 1830s; and John W. Walker, whose son, LeRoy Pope Walker, would serve as the Confederate Secretary of War. The bank was located in a "brick home on the main town square over big spring." This would have been at, or very close to, the location of the bank building that would later be constructed for the Huntsville branch of the Bank of the State of Alabama. On May 18, 1821, the Planters and Merchants Bank alerted the citizens of Huntsville that counterfeit 75-cent notes of the bank were showing up in large quantities. The plate-produced counterfeits had the forged signatures of William and Samuel Cruse and J. Boardman. The published circulation figure for October 18, 1821 was a remarkable $220,088.69. The Planters and Merchants Bank had the distinction of being robbed on two different occasions. On February 14, 1822, a thief entered the bank after business hours through a back win- dow and opened the cashier's desk. He escaped with a reported $5,050 in "mostly Huntsville bank notes." Again on October 13, 1824. another robber broke into the bank, hit the cashier over the head and made off with between $25,000 and $29,000 in notes of the bank signed by Ben Cox or Eldred Rawlins. Apparently Rawlins was the cashier at the time of the robbery. The stolen notes were in denominations of $10, $20, $50 and $100. The bank president promptly advertised a reward of $2,000 for the capture of the perpetrator. A separate reward of $1,000 was offered for the return of the stolen money. Mr. Pope, who was largely responsible for the early develop- ment of Huntsville, was a controversial figure in the town and he made some enemies. The bank became the subject of much anti-bank sentiment, which eventually forced its closing. The Planters and Merchants Bank closed for good on February 5, 1825. For the next ten years, Huntsville did not have a local bank. Although the Bank of the State of Alabama had been chartered at Cahawba in 1823, the lack of a good transportation system prevented that bank from serving the fiscal needs of North Alabama. By 1833, the cotton business was being severe- ly impacted by the lack of a local financial institution. On February 4th and 5th, 1835, an organization meeting was held at Huntsville for a local branch of the Bank of the State of Alabama. Bartlett M. Lowe was chosen as president and Major James Penn became cashier. George Cox, Jr. was bookkeeper of the new branch. The bank opened on the town square around the end of July 1835 in rented quarters. A building com- mittee of four men, including James J. Donegan, who in later years would become president of the Northern Bank of Alabama, was formed to obtain a proper banking house. Mr. George Steele, a renowned local architect, designed a magnifi- cent Greek revival building to be constructed at the southwest corner of the square over the big spring. Built between 1837 and 1840, the new bank building included basement detention cells for slaves who would be used as collateral for loans. With several minor exceptions, the building has served continuously as a bank for almost 150 years. The Huntsville branch of the State Bank maintained a very large circulation to finance the cotton trade and various other speculations. The reported figure for October 31, 1835 was $319,320 and for November 1, 1836 it was $565,500, in- cluding $328,410 in "post notes payable at the Bank of Loui- siana." The bank issued both regular and post notes in denominations of $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100. The State Bank continued in operation until approximately 1846 when serious financial difficulties brought about its liquidation. The local branch may have closed as early as 1842, but the final liquida- tion was not completed until 1857. Unfortunately for present- day collectors, most of the notes and papers of the bank were burned. The building was sold by the liqidation committee for $15,000 in July 1854. The "Panic of 1857," caused by the flood of unregulated paper issues that followed the expiration of the federally char- tered Second Bank of the United States in 1836, was probably the reason for two issues of the local notes in the 1830s and ear- ly 1840s. The first issue was made by the Madison Turnpike Company at Huntsville. Chartered in 1832, this company was responsible for the construction of a fourteen mile turnpike from four miles outside of Huntsville to the village of Whitesburg on the Tennessee River. The NASCA auction sale of Dr. M. Clin- ton McGee's Alabama collection, conducted January 30, 31 and February 1, 1978, included a 25-cent note of this firm dated July 1, 1840, and this writer recalls seeing a 12 1/2-cent note some years ago. It is likely that other denominations were also used. The so-called "Manning money" was the other local issue of the 1830s. R.J. Manning's father had been one of the original directors of the Planters and Merchants Bank twenty years earlier. Young Manning was a local merchant who is reported to have established the Bell Factory Store on the square. The store was a retail outlet for the products of the Bell Factory Cotton Mill, formerly Patton, Donegan and Co., which had been organized in 1832. The McGee sale included a $1 note of R.J. Manning, dated August 1, 1838, and one of the local banks still has a 50-cent note of this firm. The Bell Factory ceased opera- tions around 1885. On February 10. 1852. the Northern Bank of Alabama at Huntsville was incorporated with a capital not to exceed $834,000. The state had the right to subscribe to forty percent of the stock of the new bank. The bank opened in the former Paper Money Whole No 114 Page 269 Ten dollar note on the Northern Bank of Alabama at Huntsville. building of the State Bank branch and eventually purchased the location in 1854, as previously mentioned. James J. Donegan was president and Theophilus Lacy was cashier. The directors were Samuel Cruse, who apparently had been associated with the old Planters and Merchants Bank, George P. Beirne, Charles H. Patton, James H. Mastin, James L. Watkins and James J. Donegan. This bank was the only bank outside of Mobile and New Orleans that did not suspend specie payments when the Civil War broke out. The Northern Bank issued notes in denominations of $1, $2, $5, $10, $20. $50 and $100. The $1s and $2s are fairly common today and occasionally a $10 turns up. But the other denominations appear to be scarce. During the war there was a severe shortage of circulating small change which caused many local merchants to issue small denomination paper scrip. Two such issues circulated by local firms are known to this writer. Both appeared in the McGee sale and both were issued by local hotels in 1862. The Johnson House, which appeared in the 1859 City Directory, issued a 5-cent note. The Huntsville Hotel, issuer of a 25-cent note, was constructed in 1858/1859 on the site of the Bell Tavern which had burned in 1854. The new hotel, located near the square. was a Huntsville landmark until 1910 when it, too, was des- troyed by fire. On April 11, 1862 Federal troops occupied Huntsville. Soldiers under the command of General O.M. Mitchell oc- cupied the town and the surrounding area. The town of Athens was sacked and Whitesburg, a village on the Tennessee River south of town, was razed. Rail facilities and military supplies in Huntsville were burned before the Union forces departed on August 31, 1862. In July 1863 the Federals returned to Hunt- sville, remaining until September when they abandoned the town again after causing much destruction. On November 26, 1863 they came back to stay, thereby ending any Confederate control in the area. The Union occupation forced the Northern Bank of Alabama to close its doors and begin a liquidation that would not be com- pleted until 1867. As late as 1865 the bank's notes were quoted at thirty cents on the dollar. Many of the bank's organizers would soon be back in the banking business at Huntsville as will be seen shortly. Following the war, three banks of interest were organized in Huntsville. The first of these was the National Bank of Hunts- ville, organized on September 15, 1865 by many of the former Northern Bank directors. The bank was granted National Bank Charter Number 1560 and was authorized to conduct business. An advertisement in "The Huntsville Advocate" of June 30, 1866 lists the directors as James H. Mastin, James J. Donegan, George P. Beirne, James L. Watkins and Joseph W. Burke. James Mastin was president of the new bank and Theo Lacy was cashier. With the exception of Joseph Burke, all of these men had served in similar positions with the Northern Bank, then in the process of liquidation. James Mastin served as presi- dent until January 17, 1882 when he was succeeded by James R. Stevens. The National Bank of Huntsville occupied the same building that had housed the Northern Bank and the Huntsville branch of the State Bank. This bank issued First Charter National Bank An early check from Fordyce & Rison, Bankers at Huntsville. 111:NTSirt 192411 TN'TP5 1§1.914.44.4tl., • • THE HENHERSON NATIONAL BANK OF IUNTS VILLE ALABAMA *3 Timm iroumis A001134 111 TATE; a76r: A001; 8 7 6 5 Page 270 Paper Money Whole No. 114 notes in $5, $10 and $20 denominations and Second Charter period Brownback $10s and $20s. To this writer's knowledge, only two notes of this bank are known to have survived. In 1866 the firm of -Fordyce, Janney & Co., Bankers and Brokers" was established by R.W. Fordyce, E.L. Janney and W.P. Rison. Sometime prior to 1872 the name was changed to "Fordyce, & Rison, Bankers." In later years this bank would become the largest bank in Huntsville as the "W.R. Rison Bank- ing Co." Although it issued no bank notes, its size and date of organization make it a bank worthy of mention here. It was eventually purchased by the First National Bank of Huntsville around 1948. In early 1865, President Lincoln had authorized the Freed- man's Savings Bank to provide banking services to the newly freed slaves. Alabama branches were established in Mobile, Montgomery and Huntsville. The Huntsville branch operated from 1868 until 1874 when the bank failed. Mr. Lafayette Robinson was cashier of the local branch. On July 5, 1889. the National Bank was rechartered as the First National Bank of Huntsville with Charter Number 4067. James R. Stevens, former president of the National Bank, re- tained his position as president of the newly named bank until he resigned in 1899. He was followed by Major William H. Echols from 1899 to 1909 and then by Robert E. Spragins until 1935, the end of the note issuing period. Mr. Spragins was suc- ceeded by his son, M. Beirne Spragins. Henry C. Landman was cashier during the 1929 note issue period. The First National Bank continued to occupy the old building on the square. The "First National" issued Second Charter Brownbacks. Third Charter Blue Seals, and the small size 1929 issues of national bank notes. The bank building underwent several renovations during all this time, but its exterior appearance was preserved unchanged. In recent years. the First National became part of the First Alabama Bank Corporation, which continues to use the old building as its main office in Huntsville. Two other national banks were organized in Huntsville during the note-issuing period. The first of these was a short-lived in- stitution named the Farmers and Merchants National Bank, Charter Number 4689. Chartered in 1892, this bank operated for only thirteen years until it was liquidated on March 16. 1905. Brownback $10 and $20 notes were issued by this bank but none are known to have survived. In 1901 Mr. W.I. Wellman was president and Mr. J.R. Boyd was cashier. The last note-issuing bank established in Huntsville was the Henderson National Bank organized in 1907 with Charter Number 8765.

Robert Murphree later became presi- dent and his signature appears on the 1929 note issues, along with W.R. Stobaugh as cashier. This bank was located in a building approximately diagonally across the town square from the First National. (The bank remained in this location until 1948, when it relocated to a new headquarters on the northwest corner of the square.) The Henderson National Bank issued Third Charter Red Seals and Blue Seals and the 1929 Series notes. The 1929 $20s of this bank are fairly common since a number of them appar- ently were included in a hoard of Alabama notes that surfaced in the 1960s. The Henderson National became part of the First National Bank of Alabama in 1981 and the old name was lost. Thus, a very small town in the south. at least until the 1960s. had quite a substantial numismatic history and produced a large variety of collectible paper money. However, although the variety was large, the quantity available in minuscule, thereby creating a significant challenge to the modern collector.

LOW and His Work I N 1853, the year the cities of New York and Chicago werelinked by rail — both cities were important in the life of theartist—Will Hicock Low was born on 31 May in Albany, New York. As a youth he was frequently ill, and his schooling was often interrupted. During these absences from the classroom young Will spent much of his time drawing. At seven- teen he submitted a drawing to the Independent, a newspaper, for which he received $50. Domestic difficulties at home forced the boy to venture into the world alone. Though he lacked for- mal training he was soon illustrating for Harper's and Appeltons'. On the heels of these triumphs, Will Low began to paint in oil, but he immediately realized the training he lacked was a major handicap. At about the age of twenty he went to Paris where he remained for five years. The two most important teachers under whom he studied were Gerome and Carolus Duran. In the French capital Will Low acquired more than just painting techni- que; he found a wife as well—a Parisienne named Marie Julienne. Both Mr. and Mrs. Low became close friends of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Louis Stevenson, who they met in Paris. Looking back to that period in his life Will Low wrote that "Art and life were synonymous with us in those days."' When the Lows returned to Paris in 1886 the Stevensons stayed with them; their circle of friends expanded to include Rodin. On one occasion Low told of an incident when the enigmatic Stevenson confided in him, wondering if he should accept $8,000 for the serial rights to a book. The author thought the amount was too much. There was another instance when Low accompanied Mrs. Stevenson and her mother-in-law to the opening performance of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde;' Stevenson was too ill to attend. "When cries of `Author! Author! came, Mr. Low . . . suddenly realized he was mistaken for the author, when as suddenly collapsed from sight onto the floor of the theatre box."' Low served as the model for the character Loudon Dodd in The Wrecker, a collaboration of Stevenson and John Lloyd. It was Low who introduced Augustus Saint Gaudens to Robert Louis Stevenson after the sculptor had requested a meeting. . . . it was my good fortune to bring together Robert Louis Stevenson and Augustus Saint Gaudens, and in this way to be the means of the production of the best portrait of Louis ever made, the fine bas-relief modeled by the sculptor, who afterwards to my great delight presented to me the first cast made from the mould."' In 1879 Will Low became associated with, and obviously was influenced by the legendary American artist John LaFarge. One of the things Low learned from working with this giant was the ability to work with stained-glass. Ten years later Low received a medal at the Paris Exposition for illustrations he did for Keats' Lamia, illustrations that gained world recognition. He also illustrated Odes and Sonnets. The beautiful diploma for the Chicago Exposition' was designed by this artist. In 1904 Low designed another official diploma, this time for the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. Will H. Low, artist and muralist. (Courtesy of Thomas F. Morris II, de- ceased). Page 274 Paper Money Whole No. 114 Just over ten years earlier, Low was one of the three artists chosen to create designs for the educational notes of 1896. Before Low began his designs he wrote to the Chief Engraver at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing saying, "I have thought a great deal of the proposed series of designs, and if your Bureau can carry through its laudable desire to better the quality of designs for our currency I can promise you my most earnest endeavors. I am certain that a move in this direction would be extremely popular. and thoroughly in the line which the best ar- tistic taste has been endeavoring to impress on the people at large for the past few years. It certainly would. from an artistic standpoint, be commencing at the very root to put a work of art in the hands of every man who buys a loaf of bread." With these many accomplishments Will H. Low was sought after to become a member of the elite artistic societies. A few of them are: the Society of American Artists, the National Academy of Design, the National Society of Mural Painters and the National Institute of Arts and Letters. He was distinguished as a member of the latter because he also gained literary reputa- tion. He wrote A Chronicle of Friendships and A Painter's Prog- ress; the second title was originally delivered at the Art Institute of Chicago as part of the Scammon Lectures. In Will Hicock Low's obituary in The New York Times—he died on 27 November 1932—the writer could have in part re- ferred to History Instructing Youth on the $1 educational note when the following was written. "Low has been commended for the grace of line, delicate color and sound composition of his painting. Critics have approved his treatment of gods and nymphs for their charm of color reflections in light and shade."' Decades before Will H. Low died, in 1932, there was a revolution in the art world: Picasso's cubism, the fauvism of Matisse and the paintings of Braque who was associated with both movements. The new, radical approaches to artistic ex- pression did not meet with Low's approval; he remained un- shakeable in his realistic attitude. In his obituary he is quoted as saying he could never find the nude in the DuChamp, A Nude Descending a Staircase. "I suppose movements like these serve their purpose [by] stirring up the goldfish."

Black Charter Discovery A collector who wishes to remain anonymous has just discovered the first $5 Series of 1875 black charter note to be reported from the National Bank of Schwenksville. Pennsylvania. Of fourteen banks, which potentially issued this variety, this is the eighth bank from which specimens have been verified. The Schwenksville occurrence was predicted by myself, Raymond and Hickman from our research of specimens held by the Smith- sonian Institution. The National Bank of Schwenksville was the last bank to utilize the variety and its charter 2142 is the highest that bears the variety. COINCIDENCE wo Pennsylvania banks are known to have issued the variety, Boyertown (2137) and Schwenksville (2142). A third is likely, Green Lane (2131). In what I find to be a remarkable coincidence given the size of Pennsylvania and the plethora of banks in the state, all these black charter banks are located within eleven miles of each other! Schwenksville lies about 25 miles northwest of the heart of Philadelphia on state route 73 where it intersects state route 29. You can take 29 north to Green Lane, or 73 west to Boyertown. The National Bank of Schwenksville was organized April 14, 1874; its first officers were Jacob G. Schwenk, president and John G. Prizer, cashier. Prizer signed the discovery note as cashier although Henry W. Kratz appears as president. The bank is still in business on the corner of Main and Centennial Streets under the title of the National Bank and Trust Company, a title change that was effected in 1931. Schwenksville is located along Perkiomen Creek. The small town was formally named Schwenksville about 1872, and was incorporated as a borough in 1903. However, its history is far older. The Lenni-Lenape Indians ceded the land along Perki- omen Creek, which ultimately became Schwenksville, to Wil- liam Penn in 1684. About 1695—before the revolution— the first copper mine in Pennsylvania was operated there. The first Schwenk known to live in the vicinity was a blacksmith named George who appeared on a 1756 census for the area. William Morris' county map of 1849 showed only Schwenk's inn and store, the house of J. Steiner, and a blacksmith shop in what is now Schwenksville. Soon thereafter George Schwenk established a post office designated as Schwenk's Store, PA. Following the renaming of the town to Schwenksville in 1872. the population continued to grow, largely with Germans: by 1880 there were 303 inhabitants who claimed the town as home. The Green Goods Game Conducted by ,r,"% Forrest Daniel 4"--V If Paper Money Whole No. 114 INDUSTRY 0 NE factor contributing to the growth of the town was thecoming of the railroad in 1869, which brought manysummer visitors and establishment of an amusement park, and summer hotels on nearby Spring Mountain. Perkiomen Creek was popular for swimming and boating, although it later became polluted. A primary industry before refrigeration was ice harvesting from Perkiomen Creek. Today all vestiges of industry are virtually gone, and the town serves as a quaint residential community. It boasts a weekly newspaper dating from 1877. Some past industries include a men's clothing manufacturer employing a peak of 700 people in the late 1800s. A cigar maker in the early part of this century boasted production of up to five million, hand rolled cigars per year. Ladies handbags were also produced in the town for a while.

THOSE GREMLINS STRIKE AGAIN Peter Huntoon In my article "Evolution of Treasury Serial Numbering on Na- tional Bank Notes" on pages 181-185, Paper Money, whole number 112 (July-August, 1984) the banks listed in Table 4 are incorrectly identified as are references to them in the text. The following corrections are in order: The Cecil NB, Fort Deposit, Indiana (1211) should be the Cecil NB, Port Deposit, Maryland (1211). Likewise the NB, Elkhorn, Indiana (1236) should be the NB Elkton, Maryland (1236). These errors crept in when I misread the hand written entries in the ledgers. Most embarrass- ing is that I misread the script Md as Ind. It always pays to cross check your data! Another fact, relating to Table 2, is that neither the Westchester NB of Peeksville, NY nor the Washington County NB of Greenwich, NY, issued any of the 1-1-2-2 Series of 1875 notes printed for them. The conclusion: no 1-1-2-2 Series of 1875 sheet combinations were issued. These corrections were supplied by Don Kelly who I salute for his thoroughness in reading such articles. Especially I thank Don for being kind enough to bring these errors to my attention. Don did have another exciting comment. He advises that you may see examples of both a $1 and $2 from an Original Series 1-1-2-2 combination sheet issued by the Greenwich, New York Bank on page 334 in Paper Money, whole number 84 (Nov.-Dec., 1979). Remember that these are distinguished by having blue treasury serial numbers with the unique A prefix let- ter. Notes from sheets A17797 and A19935 are shown. HOOSIERS TAKEN IN Valparaiso, Ind., Jan. 21. —The north part of this county is on the boom, which makes it a good field for sharpers to get in their work. Last Wednesday Thomas Payne of Boston reached Chestertown, claiming to represent a syndicate of capitalists of Chicago, Cincinnati and New York, saying they wanted to secure about 2,000 acres of land there for a large manufacturing site. He visited several of the large property owners, securing options on their land, saying other parties would be out in a few days to look at the property and close up the deal. In each case he paid for the option with a big bill, always receiving a large amount of change. He spent money freely in Chestertown and Porter. He called at the Chestertown bank. asking for some blank bank notes. He filled out two for $450 and $65, payable to Thomas Payne and Patrick O'Connor, a wealthy farmer near Chestertown. Coming to this city he sold them to the State Bank of Valparaiso. He then returned to Chestertown, and from there visited La Porte and Michigan City. Last night it was discovered that a large amount of counterfeit money was in circulation in Chestertown and Porter, which was traced to the land speculators, and it is supposed that all the money he paid for options was counterfeit. To-day Patrick O'Connor received notice from the State Bank of Valparaiso that it held his notes given to Thomas Payne, due in May next. Mr. O'Connor pronounced them a forgery, claiming never to have given his note to Payne. It is thought that the La Porte and Michigan City banks were swindled also, as Payne visited both towns during the week. —St. Paul (Minn.) Pioneer Press, Jan. 22. 1894. ALTERED CANADIAN BILLS The $1 bills of the new Dominion issue are not safe to leave in cir- culation. The ground work is the same as that of the revenue stamps used on cigar boxes, and by simply cutting out a figure from the latter and pasting it over the figure one of the bill a five dollar bill can be manufactured that will be accepted ninety-nine times out of one hun- dred. Several of such bills have been passed in the city and people should examine five dollar bills closely to see that they are not taking a one. Business men think that the new bills should be recalled, and alterations made whereby the raising of ones to fives by the means described would be rendered impossible. — Winnipeg Free Press. — (The Pioneer Express, Pembina, N. Dak., Dec. 17, 1897.) BILL IS COUNTERFEIT Page 277 Bankers are now being warned of an attempted counterfeit of a federal reserve bank note, check letter "B" face plate No. 3, back plate No. 20, W. G. McAdoo, secretary of the treasury, John Burke, treasurer of the United States, portrait of Jackson. Officials of the secret service have advised North Dakota bankers that this is a most dangerous counterfeit and even money experts may be deceived by it. The secret service states that the most noticeable dif- ference is in the portrait of Jackson, the face and hair of which are too dark. The back of the note is about 1-16 of an inch larger than the gen- uine. — The Dazey (N. Dak.) Commercial, Nov. 24. 1926. rrrIte re' ,„, o aynetiSoutheinRailRoad.

With the limited time remaining, this will be, out of necessity, a brief acknowledgement of these two anniversaries. The Independent Chronicle of Boston, on 1 January 1784, stated that there was a plan for the organization of a bank. On 23 February of the same year, the New York Packet announced a similar plan for that city. A LTHOUGH incorporation did not come about until 21March 1791, The Bank of New York opened on 9 June1784. Before the charter was granted the capital stock was to be $500.000. Under the charter "the authorized capital became $1,000,000, of which $950.000 was shortly paid in, the state subscribing $50,000."' The force behind this under- taking was Alexander Hamilton, who, in the year of incorpora- tion, would establish the Bank of the United States. The Bank of New York continues to operate today as the second oldest bank in North America, after the Bank of North America.' In 1789 the Bank of New York was the first bank to loan money to the new Government of the United States. This loan was issued in nine installments, the first on 13 September and the last on 17 February of the following year. The total amount was $191,608.81, with an interest rate of 6%; the $8.81 was added for an interest overcharge.' '?( /rift Acee;i21 This unique example of the first of nine loans is in the Archives of The Bank of New York. (Courtesy of The Bank of New York) Paper Money Whole No. 114 Page 283 This note, subjected to fire, was in the collection of The Chase Manhat- tan Bank Money Museum. It is now part of the National Numismatic Collections, Smithsonian Institution. 11.v 1 r 1) 1 7 8 t An engraving of The Bank of Massachusetts. (Courtesy of The New York Public Library) One day prior to the appropriation of the first $20,000, the Secretary [of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton] had been authorized to spend the same amount in negotiating treaties with the Indians. So it is possible, though not certain, that those first borrowed dollars promoted peace between red man and white."' During this period discounts had to be considered, and the rules of The Bank of New York in 1784 stated that they "will be done on Thursday in every week, and bills and notes brought for discount must be left at the bank on Wednesday morning, under a sealed cover, directed to William Seton , Cashier. The rate of discount is at present fixed at six per cent per annum; but no discount will be made for longer than thirty days, nor will any note or bill be discounted to pay a former one."' The rules of The Bank of Massachusetts. the second bank to celebrate its 200th anniversary would "not be deviated from in the smallest instance nor on any pretense whatsoever."' Depending on security, it permitted discounts for thirty or sixty days. The doors of The Bank of Massachusetts were opened to the public on 5 July 1784, incorporation had taken place on 7 February. Thomas Willing, President of the Bank of North America and merchant William Phillips were the leaders who made this possible. The capital of The Bank of Massachusetts was $1,600,000. The first notes were engraved in Philadelphia and printed in Boston. The initial printing was $200,000, another $200,000 continued on page 285 Page 284 Paper Money Whole No. 114 IMPORTANT SPMC NOTICE ABOUT 1985 DUES PLEASE READ: — Dues statements for 1985 are enclosed with this November/December issue of the magazine.

Samuel Osgood, member of the Continental Congress and James Bowdoin were respec- tively the first cashier and president. Seeking advice and information, shareholders wrote to Thomas Willing in Philadelphia. "When the bank [of North America] was first opened here," he replied, "the business was as much a novelty to us .. as it can possibly be to you. It was a pathless wilderness, ground but little known to this side of the Atlantick. No book then spoke of the interior arrangements or rules observed in Europe—accident alone threw in our way even the form of an English bank bill. All was to us a mystery."' On 23 June 1903, The Bank of Massachusetts acquired the First National Bank of Boston, charter 200; it operates today under this name. FOOTNOTES 1. Hammond, Bray.

ARKANSAS OBSOLETE NOTES AND SCRIP This book by Matt Rothert, Sr., N.L.G., of Camden, Arkansas is scheduled to be printed in June 1985. The history of Arkansas banking, banks and scrip issuers from the time Arkansas became a state in 1836 to 1900 will be cov- ered. Many unusual historical facts are included. The book will list all Arkansas cities and towns that issued notes and scrip during this period. The author has been collecting material on these subjects for over thirty five years. The book will contain over 400 illustrations, many will show Arkansas scenes before 1900 and there will, of course, be illustrations of the actual notes and scrip. Additional in- formation will be released as the date of publication approaches. (Matt Rothert, Sr., 656 Graham St., Camden, AR, 71701, 501-836-3543) BEP ANNOUNCES FY '85 EXHIBIT SCHEDULE; SPIDER PRESS TO BE FEATURED AT 3 SHOWS The Bureau of Engraving and Printing announced its 1985 nu- mismatic and philatelic exhibit schedule, which Bureau Director Robert J. Leuver said "is well balanced and ensures maximum ex- posure for the Bureau." "After carefully reviewing the numerous invitations we had re- ceived, we selected these eight shows on the basis of geographic dispersal, the number of people expected to attend, and the abili- ty of the show to finance Bureau expenditures," Mr. Leuver ex- plained. "It was a difficult selection process because we were hon- ored with invitations to so many high-caliber events." In addition to sending technical representatives to each show, the Bureau will issue a souvenir card commemorating each one The schedule is as follows: • American Stamp Dealers' Association (ASDA), New York, New York, November 15 through 18, 1984. • Long Beach Numismatic and Philatelic Exposition, Long Beach, California, January 30 through February 3, 1985. • Milwaukee Philatelic Society (MILCOPEX '85), Milwaukee, Wisconsin, March 1 through 3, 1985. • International Coin Club of El Paso, Texas, April 18 through 21, 1985. • Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association (PAC NW), Seat- tle, Washington, May 17 through 19, 1985. • National Philatelic Exhibition of Washington, D.C. (NAPEX '85), Arlington, Virginia, June 7 through 9, 1985. • International Paper Money Show (IPMS), Memphis, Ten- nessee, June 14 through 16, 1985. • American Numismatic Association (ANA), Baltimore, Mary- land, August 20 through 25, 1985. Mr. Leuver also announced that the Spider Press, a 19th cen- tury hand press, will be demonstrated and a limited-edition plate proof sold at three shows: ASDA, International Coin Club of El Paso, and ANA. The Bureau's exhibit traditionally includes historic stamps and currency that are rarely seen by the public. A popular feature is the "Billion Dollar Display" made up of historic gold and silver certificates, fractional currency, United States Notes, and other rare items. The Bureau already has made commitments to participate in two shows during Fiscal Year 1986, according to Mr. Leuver. These are the International Paper Money Show at Cherry Hill, New Jersey, in November 1985 and AMERIPEX '86, an Interna- tional Philately Exposition in Chicago, Illinois, May 22 through June 1, 1986.

BUREAU OF ENGRAVING AND PRINTING PRODUCES RECORD 5 BILLIONTH CURRENCY NOTE The Bureau of Engraving and Printing has produced its five billionth currency note of the 1984 production year—the first time in history that the five billion mark was reached during a one-year period. "This milestone is evidence of the increasingly high produc- tivity we've been achieving over the last few years," Bureau Director Robert J. Leuver said. He noted that currency produc- tion had doubled in the last seven years. Mr. Leuver was presented with a plaque featuring the historic $1 note by Bureau production managers. The Bureau actually will produce a record 5.9 billion currency notes this fiscal year. "This is astonishing when you consider that the combined production of the 16 countries in Europe is slight- ly more than 6 billion notes," Mr. Leuver stated. He added that if an individual had 5.9 billion $1 notes and spent $1 every sec- ond, it would take about 190 years to spend it all! "And, if each note to be printed in 1984 were laid end to end, they'd stretch around the equator 221/2 times." Mr. Leuver noted that the Federal Reserve Board has ordered 26 percent more notes this year than in Fiscal Year '83. He attributed this increase primarily to the need to produce notes that are readily accepted by automatic teller machines and money-changing devices. "More than 95 percent of new notes are used to replace older currency," he explained. With 12 presses operating 24 hours a day, the Bureau prints 8 thousand notes per hour for a total of $165 million worth of currency per day. It is the world's largest securities printer, pro- ducing about 700 different security products and delivering about 45 billion security documents to customers each year. Be- gun in 1862 with six employees, the Bureau has grown to a large, modern industrial establishment with some of the most advanced securities production equipment in the world. It is unique in that rather than receiving appropriated funds from Congress, it recovers its costs from its customers. Fiscal Year 1985 sales by the Bureau will be an estimated $226 million. The Bureau has been producing U.S. currency continuously since 1877, adding U.S. postage stamps in 1894. It is also re- sponsible for advising and assisting federal agencies in design and production of other government documents which require counterfeit deterrence characteristics. The Bureau operates a public tour and Visitors' Center in Washington, D.C., where souvenir items may be purchased. The most popular sales items are uncut sheets of $1 notes, in 4 - , 16-, and 32-subject sheets, and $2 notes, in 4- and 16-subject sheets, available at the Visitors' Center and by mail.

ANA BOARD MEETING — DEVELOPMENTS AND CONVENTION PLANNING The SPMC Board meeting was held at the Detroit ANA Con- vention. Various programs, including the souvenir card and the book project are progressing, with the Pennsylvania book proof- read and final corrections being made at the typesetter. Membership figures are up for 1984, with over 2.100 copies of the recent issues mailed out to members. New memberships have been coming in at a steady pace, and Roger Durand, our Vice-President, has been continuing with recruitment efforts. Our Treasurer, Jim Stone sent out reminder letters, and we now have many of our former members back with us, including many who had not renewed for 1984. We were pleased to receive, at the ANA, a $2400 check from the Memphis Coin Club, from proceeds of their 1984 auction. This amount will be deposited in the SPMC Book Fund. We acknowledge this gift with gratitude. It will help us with our publication program. At that meeting, Mike Crabb, who has served as chairman of the Memphis show, was made an honorary member of the Society by the Board. Thanks to him and many others, the Memphis shows have been a success. At the Board meeting. the concept was discussed to establish an SPMC-sponsored paper money show to be held in the East- ern U.S. in the fall of 1985. After some discussion, we ap- proved this, and the 1985 show will be held November 14-17, 1985 at the Hyatt-Cherry Hill Complex at Cherry Hill. New Jersey (just across the river from Philadelphia). This show, which we hope will be an annual event, should prove to be popular. We are pleased to report that SPMC Governor Bill Horton has accepted the Chairmanship of this event, and he is already moving forward by putting together his committee members. The show will include a bourse, auction, educational programs, and other special events. This convention is not ex- pected to replace the Memphis show, but would supplement it, as a place where collectors of paper money and related items could gather. Elsewhere in this issue you will find further details about this show. You are advised to watch issues of PAPER MONEY and the numismatic press for further developments on this event. If you want to serve on a committee or help with this show, contact William Horton, Jr., P.O. Box 293, Franklin. New Jersey 07416. We invite your participation in this impor- tant numismatic event. Mark your calendar! The event is called the International Paper Money Convention, and is sponsored by the Society of Paper Money Collectors. Other groups have been invited to hold meetings there.

The announcement was enclosed with the Septem- ber/October issue, so we hope you will take time to return it with your check. Support SPMC and the Patron's Association! SPMC AWARDS BANQUET We had a lighter attendance at our Awards Banquet in Detroit this year, but it was a good time for all—with a fine dinner, an informative speaker (Neil Shafer, who talked about Depression Scrip of the 1930s). the awards presentations and the Tom Bain Raffle. Wendell Wolka volunteered to call the winning numbers, and he added considerable humor! The event was again co- hosted by our sister organization, the International Bank Note Society. The recipients of the awards were: NATHAN GOLD MEMORIAL AWARD Presented by Krause Publications, Iola, Wisconsin. to a person who has made a concrete contribution to the ad- vancement of paper money collecting — Barbara Mueller for her long and outstanding service as Editor of Paper Money.

For the welfare of the society, everyone must get involved in recruitment. If every member recruited just one new member and each new member recruited another new member we probably would have the most influential organi- zation in numismatics. There is no doubt that this pyramid system would enable the society to accomplish all its objec- tives. It is our duty to each other to help maintain our mem- bership. In keeping with this recruiting objective, the top recruiters will be recognized in our bi-monthly magazine. Also, at the Memphis meeting, an award will be presented to the top recruiter of the year. This award will be designated the Vice President's Plaque. The top individual recruiter and the top dealer recruiter will be honored with this award. and SPMC Governor Stephen Taylor to pursue a feasibility study to determine if such a second show could be put to- gether. SPMC officials emphasized that the show was not de- signed to "compete" with the Memphis event and would be held at a time and place which would allow both shows the chance to grow and prosper independently. Since final approval was given by SPMC's Board in Detroit at the ANA convention, plans have been drawn up to assure that the show will have the greatest possible appeal to dealers, the collecting public, and the general public. A bourse, auction, exhibits, and a wide range of educational and social activities are being planned. William Horton, Jr., P.O. Box 293, Franklin, New Jersey 07416, has been named General Chairman of the 1985 Interna- tional Paper Money Convention and may be contacted for further information on the show.

Society of Paper Money Collectors Issues Preliminary 1985 Show Details The Society of Paper Money Collectors, Inc., has an- nounced the preliminary details concerning the International Paper Money Convention which it will sponsor in the fall of 1985. The convention will be held on November 14-17, 1985, at the Hyatt Cherry Hill complex in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, which is located directly across the Delaware River from Phila- delphia, Pennsylvania. This convention becomes the country's second major show dedicated to paper money and related collectibles. The Memphis Coin Club pioneered the concept with its Interna- tional Paper Money show which is held each June in Memphis, Tennessee. Ironically, the move to develop a second show which would complement the annual Memphis affair was begun at this year's Memphis convention.

(iouour pa)_T alanop ) Paper Money Whole No. 114 Page 299 ',65 Editor's Corner 8U 0 From a personal point of view, and I think many of you will agree, the acknowledgement of the anniversary of an event, birth or death of someone, in a manner that can be associated with paper money is a perfect vehicle for an article in Paper Money. Here are just a few anniversaries that could have been remembered, but which most of us overlooked. The year 1982 was the anniversary of: the birth of Alexander Hamilton, our first Secretary of the Treasury (225th); the first imprint of the Great Seal of the United States (200th); the fateful Jackson veto against the renewal of the charter of the Bank of the United States (150th); the first notes delivered with In God We Trust (25th). In 1983 we could have remembered the 150th anniversary of the burning of the U.S. Treasury Building. For those who want to plan ahead. articles to appear in 1986 could relate to the following anniversaries: the appointment of Salmon P. Chase as Lincoln's Secretary of the Treasury (125th); the beginning of the Civil War (125th): the independ- ence of Texas (150th), Everett K. Cooper has just submitted a manuscript on this subject; the founding of the American Federation of Labor (100th), there are hundreds of state and world bank notes with the images of working men and women; the law stating that all $1 notes will bear our national motto (25th). The year 1986 will also be the 25th anniversary of the found- ing of the Society of Paper Money Collectors, a big year for us and the International Bank Note Society, founded in the same year. Your editor is formulating ways to honor our society dur- ing 1986, and would welcome any special information that relates to the early years of the SPMC. I would like to add my personal congratulations to all the re- cipients of the paper money awards at the Detroit ANA Conven- tion. However, special kudos are extended to Nancy Wilson who captured the Best of Show award. We, as members of our specific collecting fraternity, share in the pride and recognition that comes with this award. This is the fourth time in the past ten years that a syngraphic exhibitor has been awarded this prestigious accolade. Collectors of coins continue to dominate the overall field of numismatics. Notwithstanding, an excellent exhibit, be it coins, currency, medals or tokens, judged com- petently, will be recognized. Bravo Nancy! 1864 Yes, 1984 Maybe Gene Hessler The $50 one and two year interest bearing treasury notes (F198, I-1945a & F203, H 945c & d) were authorized by the Act of 3 March 1863 and were issued respectively in the third and first fiscal quarter of 1864: a vignette of Loyalty appears on each. If the Loyalty vignette were considered for use on our paper money today there would probably be a roar of "unconstitu- tional" from those who believe In God We Trust should be deleted from our coins and currency. The majority of Americans accept the separation of church and state. However, during the 1984 Presidential campaign. this topic was distorted by some and ignored by others. The following is merely an observation of what this writer thinks could happen if the image of Loyalty were considered for use today. The first criticism would focus on the image of a Bible, and that it rests on the Constitution. There would be some who would say this implies that this most fundamental document is secondary and subject to the Bible. This is all nonsense, of course, but the argument would probably be presented. Loyalty, as seen here, is not wrapped in "phony" patriotism. It is a simple, symbolic, patriotic vignette that has much to say. Notwithstanding, one can't help but ponder the possibility of an uproar if this beautifully engraved vignette were considered for use in 1984.

Page 304 Paper Money Whole No. 114 Instant Access To Paper Money Information Featuring The Hobby's Premier Lineup Of Publications Standard Handbook of Modern United States Paper Money 7th Edition by Chuck O'Donnell $15 postpaid This is the most comprehensive catalog available for collectors of small-size currency. Noted author and specialist Chuck O'Donnell has done the leg work for us with his extensive research in the Treasury Department archives and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Presented are complete listings and market values for all small-size issues from 1928-1981. Important coverage for all issued serial numbers since the skip-numbering of certain issues began in the 1970's is also included. Plus a bonus . . . details for rare and valuable mules, trial and experimental issues — once the domain of a few select researchers — will be at your fingertips. Catalog has 336 pages. Important fact: Over 14,000 serial number blocks and groups are recorded in date-within-denomination sequence. Standard Catalog of World Paper Money 4th Edition Specialized Issues By Albert Pick $40 postpaid Companion Volume to 4th Edition General Issues This volume is unsurpassed in its coverage of State, Provincial, Territorial and Colonial issues. Over 15,000 notes are listed, described and valued with representation for over 250 years of world paper money. Data that was once locked away in obscure catalogs — or in some cases never made known — is available in this special catalog. Author Albert Pick, a resident of Munich, West Germany, is universally recognized as the world's foremost paper money authority. Assisting Pick stateside were Neil Shafer, president of the International Bank Note Society and Colin Bruce II, editor for many of Krause Publications' respected coin and paper money references. Over 300 note-issuing authorities are presented. Over 6,500 photos provide strong visual aid. Important features: Complete listings for South and Central America (private and commercial banks), China (provincial banks), Mainland Europe (commercial banks) and British Crown Colonies (commercial banks).

This 360-page catalog offers coverage of 19,830 paper money lots from 140 public auctions and mail-bid sales. Listings cover the period from 1978 through 1982. Notes are sequenced by face value within the principal categories of Large and Small Size Notes, National Bank Notes, Fractional Currency and Encased Postage Stamps. A major benefit of owning this catalog is that it saves you the hassle of matching auction catalogs with prices realized sheets. When buying, look at the auction results as indicators of real market value. When selling, let auction results help you choose the more lucrative route; to sell through ads, etc., or sell at auction. When the success of your paper money transactions depends on your grasp and interpretation of the market, you'll have a definite advantage when you use this reference catalog. Standard Catalog of United States Paper Money 3rd Edition by Chester Krause and Robert Lemke $14.50 postpaid If you rose above our hobby for a moment, and looked down, you'd get a feel for the scope of this catalog. Here is a comprehensive over-view of all currency issues of the United States — more than 120 years of official and quasi-official paper money. Presented for visual aid are over 525 original photos, covering all types and major varieties. Over 3500 currency items are valued according to current market conditions.
