What does it mean? rt.enx /I Bb Paper Money Whole No. 118 Page 163 A Confederate Mystery' BRENT H. HUGHES, SPMC 7 © 1985 Collectors of Confederate currency are never surprised at what turns up. The combination of sixty- nine basic types with hundreds of varieties, different kinds of paper and watermarks plus printing er- rors makes a fertile field for study. Add the post-printing revaluation stamps, "interest paid" stamps and all sorts of hand-written endorsements and it gets interesting. The odd and curious really be- come almost commonplace. Of course, one hundred and twenty years of collecting and study have explained most things, but one item remains a mystery. It's the dime-size green oval with "C" counterstamp that shows up on some of the $50 Washington notes of the July 25, 1861 issue, known to today's collectors as Criswell Type 8. I have never seen or heard of the stamp appearing on any other type note. Over the years there have been lots of theories about the "C" stamp, but nothing positive. Let's trace the various publications . T HE first significant description of Confederate notes wascontained in an album published by Raphael Thian in1876. C. H. Bechtel produced another album for col- lectors in 1877. The descriptions in both albums are good, but neither man mentioned the "C" stamp. During those years there were also articles and catalogs published by scholars and dealers, all of which are quite rare today and not available to me. So I don't know if any of these publications mention the notes with the green "C" stamp. The first comprehensive book on the subject of Confederate notes was Confederate and Southern State Currency, written in 1915 by William West Bradbeer. This book listed the major varieties and organized the notes into a more or less logical se- quence. Bradbeer listed the note with the "C" stamp as a sepa- rate variety, number 18, with these words, `Counterstamped "C" in green. Issue of Bb 39704.' The Bb refers to the plate- letters shown on the note and the 39704 is the total number of Bb notes printed. . /l/ //Arl ,,r,;■ . • Paper Money Whole No. 118 Page 167 $ ' ,1 THE PAPER COLUMNiL by Peter Huntoon National Bank Notes with Treasury Serial 1 and 1000000 Part I This and succeeding articles will list all of the treasury serial number 1 and 100000C national bank notes that were printed. The treasury serial numbering system used on national bank notes is explained in detail in "Evolution of Treasury Serial Numbering on National Bank Notes," PAPER MONEY, vol. 23, pages 181-185. First $5 Brown Back. This is one of 141 national bank notes printed that carried both treasury and bank serial number 1. (Photo courtesy of Dean Oakes.) SERIAL 1 AND 1000000 NOTES ABLE 1 shows the total number of treasury serial 1 and 1000000 sheets by series and sheet combination. As you can see, 1371 number 1 and 1230 number 1000000 notes were printed. Of the 1371 treasury serial 1 notes, 141 car- ried bank serial 1 as well. Table 2 summarizes the treasury 1 and 1000000 totals for the popular sheet combinations. To date, only one treasury serial 1 note has been dis- covered — the note pictured here. No 1000000 notes have been reported so obviously one of them ranks among the great potential finds in large size currency. SOURCES OF DATA The information presented here was recorded by the Comp- troller of the Currency in large ledgers showing receipts from the engravers. These ledgers are now housed in the National Ar- chives. They list bothithe treasury and bank serials for every shipment, and the entries are arranged in treasury serial order. The only problem is that the records after 1912 have been lost. Through a stroke of luck, I found a diary kept by someone in the numbering division of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, which lists the dates when the serial 1000000 to 1 changeover sheets were printed. At least now we know when these pairs were printed after 1912. Unfortunately the bureau record does not identify the banks that received these sheets. The bureau diary did reveal information on the last sheets printed for all the Series of 1902 blue seal plain back combina- tions except the 50-100. The only data missing in these entries are the bank serial numbers on the last sheets. No final sheet in- formation is given for any Series of 1882 value back. DATES The dates listed in the tables herein are either the day the shipment was received by the Comptroller of the Currency from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, or in the case of the bureau records, the day that the sheets were numbered. The elapsed time between numbering and delivery to the comptrol- ler usually amounted to only a few days at the most. Keep in mind that in many cases there was a delay ranging up to several years between the time the sheets were received by the comp- troller and when they were shipped to the banks for issue. An unexpected find in the bureau diary was a listing of all printings containing bank serial number 1000000. These entries are included here as Table 3. None of these unusual notes are currently known to exist. 1 AND 1000000 SHEETS Included here in Table 4 is a complete listing of the first and last serials for each set of treasury serials used on the 1-1-1-2, 1-1-2-2, 5-5-5-5, and 10-10-10-10 combinations. Successive parts in this series will list the higher denomination sheets begin- ning with the popular 10-10-10-20 in Part 2. Future installments will explore other highlights from the trea- sury serial numbering system. Topics that will be treated include the addition of prefix letters to treasury numbers, numbering of sheets made by printing selected subjects from larger plates, and overlapping of Series of 1902 red seal and date back printings.

The highest number used was 999980 on a 5-5-5-5 sheet for the Second National Bank of Scranton, Pennsylvania in May, 1873. Both the number 1 Am- sterdam and number 999980 Scranton sheets were issued BANK SERIAL 1000000 SHEETS USE OF TREASURY SERIALS ON NATIONALS Treasury serial numbers were used on national bank notes from the beginning of the Original Series in 1863 until August 25, 1925. These numbers were sheet serials because every note on the sheet had the same number. When treasury serial num- bers were abolished, the only nationals being printed were Series of 1902 blue seal plain backs, and the treasury serials— upper right number—were replaced with duplicate bank serial numbers. ORIGINAL SERIES NUMBER SETS Original Series treasury serials did not start with 1 or end with 1000000. In fact, there was only one Original Series sheet that used treasury serial 1: serial Ul printed on a 5-5-5-5 sheet in May, 1875, for the Manufacturers National Bank of Amster- dam, New York. No serial 1000000 Original Series sheets were Table 1. Numbers of treasury serial number 1 and 1000000 sheets printed for the various national bank note sheet combina- tions.

Last week a twenty dollar bill on the Ripley branch, was suspected by a teller of one of the banks in Third Street, but after a close comparison and strict scrutiny by the most reliable judges, there was a difference of opinion as to its character. The majority, however, decided that it was genuine. In order to test the matter fully, Messrs. Johnson & Brother forwarded the bill to the cashier of the Ripley branch, and today an answer was received pronouncing it a counterfeit, no notes of the date and number having been issued by the bank. Engravers are of the opinion that the impression must have been, in part at least, from genuine engravings, so perfect is the imitation. There is no mark by which the counterfeit can be distinguished from the ge- nuine, and as the former have undoubtedly been changed in the filling up so as to represent the several branches, the only safe plan is to refuse all notes of the denomination of $20 on the State Bank of Ohio. The counterfeit is not a new one, and some of our bankers are of the opinion that the spurious notes have been received and paid out by the banks themselves for some time, and that a large proportion of the $20s now in circulation are counterfeit,["]—The Daily Pioneer and Democrat, St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 27, 1858. HOBO WORKS A NEW GAME Here is a scheme that recently worked on a cafe manager at Centerville, Iowa. It's a confidence game with counterfeit money; and yet the man who had it did not use it, although his ruse worked so he disposed of the "bogue" and got his change. Here is how he worked his graft and it's a graft of the latest design. An old typical hobo walked into a cafe and unburdened him- self of a masterful hard luck story. Whiningly he described his il- lness, idleness and hunger. The restaurant man ordered the counter man to give the hobo a meal. When the old man had fed up on a 50-cent dinner, he shuffled over to the restaurant man and began to mumble his thanks. "Oh, that's all right,"the cafe man said, "you are welcome." Just then the hobo pulled out a dirty greasy handkerchief as if to wipe off a tear. A new $5.00 bill fell on the floor . The restaurant owner glanced at it, and then he jumped for it. "You can't work any of your old tricks here," he announced, ringing up the cost of the meal on his cash register. He handed the wayfarer $4.50 in change and a piece of his mind about dis- honesty. The old man took his change and went his way. When the bank returned the $5.00 bill as spurious, the res- taurant proprietor was flabbergasted. "Can you beat that?" he exclaimed. —The Elgin (N. Dak.)

Some- how, the gang got wind of it, and when arrested, nothing was discovered which would allow that they had been implicated in any such affair. They were consequently discharged, as there was an insufficiency of proof of crime to discharge (sic) them.

Panama is one of two countries — the other is Liberia — where the "green- back" has served as the official currency. In 1904, with clause 117, the Republic of Panama made U.S. currency legal tender. With the exception of a seven day period in 1941 this currency law continues to be recognized. T HE Spanish explorer Rodrigo de Bastidas discovered the coast of Panama in 1501 ; Columbus arrived two years later. In 1513, Vasco Nunez de Balboa crossed the isth- mus, discovered and named the Pacific Ocean. In 1821, Panama with much of Spanish America, withdrew from Spanish domination and became a province of the new Republic of Columbia. On 3 November 1903, when indepen- dence was declared, a meeting took place at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. Don Bunau-Varilla, Panama's official representative, met with a group who, with the support of Presi- dent Theodore Roosevelt, represented the United States. In ex- change for perpetual right to use the planned Panama Canal, U.S. Marines were waiting to defend Panama from Columbian troops as the claim for independence was made. Such a move was advantageous to both Panama and the United States. Coins of Panama have circulated since 1904. Then in 1940, Arnulfo Arias came to power. In September of the following year he issued Executive Decree No. 3, which authorized bank notes in denominations of 1, 5, 10 and 20 balboas. The notes, measuring 157 x 67 mm, were printed by the Hamilton Bank Note Co. of New York City. On 2 October, these notes entered circulation. Arias, who took office unopposed, was deposed by Dr. Adolfo de la Guardia on 9 October, and one of la Guardia's first acts was to withdraw the new bank notes, and put into effect, once again, clause 117. A scenario to create instant rarities could not have been choreographed better. Of 183,000 notes issued, all except 6,500 were redeemed and destroyed by the Government of Panama. Records of July 1950 confirm this outstanding amount to be the same. Some notes were obviously lost or destroyed accidentally; the remain- ing pieces are in the hands of collectors. The 6,500 figure is deceiving, because these notes are not seen very often.

A similar portrait of Alexander Hamilton was used on the $2 United States notes of 1862. Minute differences are visible when this portrait is compared to the J.P. Ourdan engraving. (Courtesy of Dr. Glenn E. Jackson) This company was founded in 1880; incorporation took place in 1884. One year later, Augustine L. Helm (1833-1920) came to the Hamilton Bank Note Co. (HBN) as a modeller and designer. Just before incorporation Helm joined the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing ; he remained there until 1894. ' HBN was a selling agent for the Hamilton Bank Note Engraving and Printing Co. (HBNEP) ; it was incorporated in 1885. Knowledgeable philatelists usually associate HBN with the infamous Nicholas Frederick Seebeck. One example of his modis operandi is found in a published copy of a contract be- tween Seebeck and the Government of Salvador. The following was taken from the June, 1889 issue of the Philatelic Journal of America, Vol. 5. N.F. Seebeck, Secretary of the Hamilton Bank Note Co. would for ten years, print all needed postal material, the designs of which would differ each year. This would be done 'free of all cost to the Mail Services of Salvador. . . In compensation for the disbursement made by the Com- pany in engraving and furnishing the Postal Issues in question, the Supreme Government of Salvador agrees to cede to the Company the stock which, on the conclu- sion of each year, may be in its possession, upon the pre- vious declaration of its nullity on the 1st January of each year, whatever be the quantity thereof ; binding itself moreover not to sell stamps of any of the other issues mentioned for less than their face value while they are in use. A daughter, Viola Helm. worked for Joseph Ruff & Co. (ca. 1898). She was the only woman engraver of the time. Two sons of Augustine L. Helm, Henry and Charles, were also engravers. If there is any doubt about what Mr. Seebeck had in mind, clause (8) of this contract will make it clear. Upon the Representative of Salvador being notified by the Supreme Government of the issues of each successive year being declared void, and not receivable for postage, and advice having been given to that effect to the engrav- ing company, the latter can withdraw from the Safe De- posit already mentioned the Matrices of the Postal Issues, and break in the presence of the Representative, the seals referred to in Article 3 for the purpose of using the Plates to make such reprints as the Engraving Company may wish to sell to Dealers and Collectors. N.F. Seebeck negotiated similar contracts with other Latin American countries. Nicaragua was another country that had bank notes prepared by this company. The first of these notes (P42-69) were issued sometime after 1910, the last in 1938. Before and after this period, American Bank Note Co. (ABN) produced bank notes for Nicaragua. In 1910, under Ernest Schernikow, president of HBN, the Nicaraguan Government was persuaded to have the smaller and younger company engrave and produce their notes. One of the engravers employed at this time was George Van- Ness, who probably engraved portions of some of the Nicara- guan notes. In 1913, along with VanNess, the following en- gravers were employed at HBNEP : T. Bickett, James Griffith, A. McCloskey and C.F. Witnauer. Edward Connally was a de- signer and a man by the name of Pickett (Bickett) was in charge of the engraving division. All had probably been employed before 1913. (Continued on page 185) ba -,eph Seligman (1819.1880). Paper Money Whole No. 118 Page 177 Theeligman Oaga by Edward Schuman B AIERSDORF, Bavaria was the birthplace of Joseph Selig- man. The oldest of eight brothers, he was born on Sep- tember 22nd 1819. His father, David Seligman was a weaver in the village, and a trader and peddler of woolens and cotton goods. The family had roots going back to the early part of the 18th century and they were known for their fairness and honest dealings. Joseph was able to attend the University of Erlangen, where for a time' he studied medicine, ' and then thought of the Rabbinate, but soon decided that he would not be suited to either of these professions. He realized that his homeland's suppression of Jewish rights would greatly curtail the quality of life he could lead, so shortly after graduating from the university, in 1837, he decided to emigrate to the United States. He settled in a small mining town in Western Pennsylvania where he found employment with a clothing contractor. Soon thereafter he began to send for his brothers, one or two at a time as his capital accumulated. They began to peddle clothing and dry goods, first through the state of Pennsylvania, and then branching out to the southern states. In the South they found considerable success and were soon established in Greensborough, Alabama. More brothers were sent for and as merchants they soon branched out to neighbor- ing states, and north to Missouri. In 1841. brothers Jesse and Henry established a dry goods store and clothing business in Watertown, New York. When Lt. Ulysses S. Grant was stationed at Sackett's Harbor, he came to know and do business with the Seligmans. Many years later, in 1891, Jesse Seligman spoke of the president in a eulogy stating "on our acquaintance, we immediately became friends, and from that hour until his death I know of no one who was entitled to greater love and respect, not only from his immediate friends but from the people of the entire country." President Grant had wanted either Jesse or Joseph Seligman to serve in his cabinet as Secretary of the Treasury. Either would have been well qualified for this position, but both turned it down for personal reasons. They became trusted advisors to several U.S. Treasury Secretaries and they were ranked among the ablest financiers on Wall Street and throughout America. Joseph Seligman accumulated considerable wealth through his Southern operations. The remaining members of the family were ,sent for and given employment. By 1848 he had trans- ferred operations to New York City, where he became the lead- ing clothing dealer, as well as importer of dry goods. The news of the California gold strike in 1848 stirred the imagination of everyone. Jesse Seligman traveled to California soon afterward, and established a clothing store in one of the few all brick buildings in San Francisco. He benefited greatly from his clothing monopoly, and the gold received in payment was dispatched to New York, and was used to establish the firm's expanding credit. When the U.S. Army sent Grant to California, he found his old friend Jesse well established in busi- ness, and their friendship was renewed. During the disastrous fire of 1851, when most of San Francisco burned, the Seligman brick building was one of the few buildings to survive, since most structures were of woodframe composition or canvas. As Seligman carried an abundant inventory, he benefited tremen- dously from the inflationary trend in all commodities that follow- ed. As the gold that was sent east accumulated, the family in- terests became diversified and now included banking. During the Civil War, the Seligmans advanced more than $1,000,000 worth of clothing to the Union, on credit. The brothers gave up their clothing and importing business to con- centrate on banking ; they soon ranked among the leading bank- ers in New York City. Joseph Seligman journeyed to Europe and was able to sell more than $200,000,000 in Union bonds, most of them in Germany and in Holland where his family was well known and respected. This transpired at a time when British and French bankers were unfriendly to the Union cause. and assisted, instead, with loans to the Confederacy. The firm of J. & W. Seligman was now well established and soon had offices in London, Paris, Frankfort, New Orleans and San Francisco, as well as its main office in New York.

The name change was the result of the stigma of being classified as a foreign bank. Foreign banks in California were the outgrowths of branches es- tablished in the gold rich area by such European houses as the Rothschilds, Lazard Freres, etc., whereas the American banks were founded by native citizens. Despite the fact that the Selig- mans had been inhabitants of the United States for a decade or so, they were considered foreigners, and the name change was in fact to Americanize the bank. In this writer's collection are several gold checks of L.H. Hershfield and Bro., pioneer Mon- tana bankers. The endorsement is handwritten and signed by Aaron Hershfield, partner in the Hershfield operation. "Pay J & W Seligman or order for a/c Anglo-California Bank, San Fran- cisco (signed) L.H. Hershfield & Bro." Seligman fiscal material is extremely hard to find. Evidently it was not saved, but usually destroyed when outdated. The Seligmans assisted the U.S. Government again in 1870 with the funding of the national debt and the resumption of specie payments. The family became prominent in American railroad financing. The Missouri Pacific, the Santa Fe, and the Atlantic and Pacific were among the benefactors of Seligman's financial accord. The Seligmans were always champions of Jewish rights, and Jewish causes. They played a major role in mobilizing public opinion against the Romanian persecutions of the Jews in 1870. The Seligmans' old friend, President Grant, accepted the re- sponsibility of securing equal rights for the Jews of Romania, and sent Benjamin Peixotto to that country as consul general and special envoy to aid and assist the harassed Jews. Some progress was made as a result of this intervention to suppress some of the duress the Romanian Jews were enduring. Joseph Seligman was denied admittance to a hotel in Sara- toga Springs, New York, because he was Jewish. Judge Henry Hilton, who owned the famous A.T. Stewart department store, was the local owner. Many people were outraged, and as a result both Jews and Christians stopped buying in the depart- ment store, which soon after was sold to John Wanamaker. The Seligmans were active in Temple Emanu-El. They were found- ers of the Hebrew Orphan Asylum and supporters and founders of the Society for Ethical Culture. (Continued on page 185) Paper Money Whole No. 118 Page 179 FEDERAL RESERVE BANK NOTES * ST * ARS * by DEAN OAKES M Y collecting interest in 1929 Federal Reserve Bank brown seal notes goes back about twenty-five years. Older friends who were paper money collectors duly informed me of the rarity of many of these notes and how difficult it was to collect a complete set of just the $5 denomina- tion in CU, let alone the entire series by denomination. In the early 1960s there were several, advanced, currency collectors in Iowa who had developed their currency interests throughout the 1940s and 1950s. When the 1960s rolled in with a surge in coin collecting, we started a period of consolida- tion that peaked in the 1979-80 boom. Among these currency collections there were no fewer than three complete sets of $5 1929 Federal Reserve brown seals. I'm certain that this collecting interest in small-size notes had proliferated because these fellows all belonged to an active coin club through the 1950s and thus, through their common interest in currency, challenged each other to complete this series. So, when I became a member of the Des Moines Coin Club, I was also influenced by those coin collectors who had a side collect- ing interest in currency. I began by collecting large-size national bank notes, but I kept the brown seal series in mind, and a few years later, I, too, had a complete set of $5s and most of the other denominations of the series, $5-$100. Quite a lot of information has been written about the series in general, but little has been said about the star (replacement) notes in this series and that is the purpose of this article : a complete listing of known star notes of this series. It occurred to me, after seeing several collections of Federal Reserve bank notes, that I had not seen any star notes from the series. I asked a few of the older collectors and many didn't think they had ever seen one. Another said, yes, he had seen a note or two, but they were well circulated and consequently not desirable. In those days a used piece of small-size currency was hardly collectible unless it was recognized as a so-called rarity, many of which weren't rare at all but were accepted as such. I had my first opportunity to buy a $100 Chicago star note in the mid-1960s ; it was in Fine condition, the cost $110. I thought this note would create some interest among collectors. It was duly recognized as a star note by several collectors; never- theless, I could not resell it, nor was there any appreciation for its rarity. Rather than hold this note I included it in a trade to a collector who undoubtedly accepted it for face value. I in turn received something I valued. I didn't even record the serial number, and yet in the accompanying list, there is no Chicago $100 note listed by serial number. My next opportunity to obtain a star note was at a coin auc- tion that included a few pieces of currency, among which, and listed as such, was a $5 Chicago note in low grade ; I still have it. About 1979 I decided to collect this series by star notes and, in doing so, I started to jot down the serial numbers of notes that I observed. It is apparent that many of these notes have come out of safe deposit boxes from money put away in the years after the de- pression. As these notes were issued as emergency money im- mediately after the bank holiday in 1933, it was only natural that some of it was saved, and from this consolidation of estate hold- ings we now see the emergence of these star notes. Other than a run of probably twenty pieces each of $50 and $100 Kansas City star notes in CU, the average condition of the known star notes is Fine + . Only a couple of low number star notes have shown up in CU. A few more may surface, as low numbers are known in the regular issues in the $5 and $10 de- nominations from almost all districts. The exception in the $5s is the rare San Francisco issue. Evi- dently, a collector with some influence was able to save, or have someone save for him or her, many of the low numbers in regular issues and would have found some star notes also. The one thing I'm not certain of is how desirable star notes were viewed by collectors in the early years of small-size currency issuance. Possibly, a regular issue would have been saved over a star issue, as the collector didn't "collect" star notes. I would think that the Kansas City $50 and $100 notes were saved as vault cash for nearly fifty years. I expect with the current shake- up in banking, bank vaults will yield a few secrets to the collect- ing fraternity. A few years ago, Bill Acker sent me this list of known star notes of the Federal Reserve bank note issue. Our combined knowledge, with the help of many collectors of known star notes is presented here. Within the next few years, when a larger sample has been drawn, significant rarities can be assigned to the denominations and series. All but seven issues are now known, and I would guess three or four of those will surface as a result of this article. The list of star notes presented here includes the district of each issue with the denomination and total number printed. Under each denomination, the known star notes and their grades, if known, are listed. The number of notes printed was taken from U.S. Government printing records first uncovered by Peter Huntoon and reported in Paper Money, No. 96, pages 317-318. We know the number of star notes printed, but that may not necessarily be the number issued. We should be able to determine from surviving notes if the total number printed were in fact released. Take a look at the Dallas list: $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 notes were printed with stars, but only two $10s and one $20 have been recorded to date. With all the $5s of regular issue that have survived, it seems odd that if 24,000 $5s were printed and issued, none have been observed. Three star notes for the entire Dallas issue are accounted for, and this has been a closely watched issue by collectors. It makes one wonder if the star notes that were printed were indeed issued. On the other hand, New York $10 star notes had a large printing of 76,000 notes. From the current census, one can see that notes from this entire range are beginning to appear, so we can assume that most, if not all, were issued.

ANA '85 BALTIMORE, MARYLAND The Bureau or Engraving and Printing is pleased to issue this souvenir card to commemorate the 94th Annual Convention of the American Numismatic Association to be held on August 20 to 25, t985. Tne note featured here is a replica of the reverse of a Series 1882 5500 gold certificate—the front was featured on the ANA BA souvenir card. The bright orange back design of this note Is Indicative of the days when U.S. pacer currency was "as good as gold" Gold certificates were always one of the most stable forms of currency and were widely accepted. In 1933 Gold Certificates were withdrawn from circulation by order of the Secretary of Me Department of the Treasury. This order also cancelled the legal tender status of the notes, although they are exchangeable for lawful money. 07: BUREAU OF ENGRAVING AND PRINTING, WASHINGTON, D.C. Page 185 Don Kelly has done a beautiful job in revising his book. The introduction in this 8 1/2 x 11 book is comprehensive and there are numerous photographs to illustrate the text. The body of the book is arranged chronologically by charter number within each state. A cross reference at the back enables one to find the charter number for any bank in an alphabetical listing by city and town. For each state there is a map that locates those cities and towns—still in existence —that issued national bank notes. Ad- ditional new features in this concise reference work include a price guide for uncut sheets as well as one for national bank type notes in eight grades. National Bank Notes, A Guide With Prices is advertised as the "book [that] has EVERYTHING!" It does!? (ed.) Hamilton Bank Note Co. (Continued from p. 176) In 1906, August Seebeck was the largest stockholder of HBNEP. The New York Herald reported on 12 January 1906 that in a forgery operation conducted by Samuel Humphreys and Charles Seiten, HBN engraved certificates of the Norfolk and Western Railroad for a fictitious Mr. Franklin. In 1913, stock in this company was held by Schernikow, A. Seebeck and Homer Lee. At this time, Homer Lee was the principal selling agent. On 4 January 1918, HBNEP filed for bankruptcy and went into receivership. George A. Field, who had been affiliated with the New York Bank Note Co. became president. HBN was dis- solved at this time. During the years that followed, HBNEP printed tickets for transportation companies. On 17 May 1946, both The New York Times and the Herald Tribune reported that the British bank note engraving concern, Thomas De La Rue had acquired "a substantial minority inter- est" in HBNEP. In 1948 liquidation took place; plates were sent to Security Bank Note Co. in Philadelphia. The last address to be found, in 1950, for HBNEP was 39 Chambers Street, New York City, where only typographical work was done. ■ New Literature Th History of Early Tennessee Banks and Their Issues by Paul E. Garland ; published by Paul E. Garland, 2006 Lake Village Drive, Kingwood, TX 77339; 1983; 256 pp ; hardbound. Available from the publisher, price not available. A considerable amount of work by the author and the de- signer and printer, Frank R. Hannah, was expended to produce this handsome book. The first feature one notices is the excellent quality of the illus- trations including three color plates. Following the introduction there is a rarity scale, a discussion of values and a comprehen- sive list of companies that printed these notes. If you are a serious collector of Tennessee notes and want to know more than just what has been recorded thus far, you will find a considerable amount of information about specific banks and the number of notes issued, by denomination. This is a catalog that covers the subject well and is easy to read. (ed.) NEW EDITION BY KELLY National Bank Notes, A Guide With Prices, by Don C.

Seligman (Continued from p. 178) The Seligman interests headed the DeLesseps Panama Canal syndicate that financed the construction of the canal that linked the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. They entered into international underwriting for railroad construction, public utilities and many industrial businesses such as General Motors and Republic Steel. The Government of Puerto Rico engaged them as their fiscal agents, and several foreign governments employed them as financial advisors. The Seligmans were among the major in- vestors in United States War Bonds during World War I, and served in all Allied loan syndicates. In recent times, they have been engaged as securities dealers, underwriting agents and general international banking. Joseph Seligman died in 1880. The J.&W. Seligman & Co.'s first senior partner was followed by his brother Jesse. who died in 1894. Jesse's son Isaac served until 1917. A Seligman name had been on the board of directors of this prestigious banking firm continuously until 1970. Today, there are no bearers of the family name among the firm's partners. Seligman, Arizona, named for Jesse Seligman, is a small town about 175 miles from Phoenix. The Santa Fe railroad, which runs through the town, was partially financed by Jesse. . Seligman, Missouri is a small town about 250 miles southwest of St. Louis. It is named for Joseph Seligman, who has been considered as the most distinguished American Jew of the two decades between the years 1860 and 1880. Page 186 Interest Bearing No Larrytes Adams As I write this in late May, plans are well under way for the Society's 1985 activities and events. The Memphis convention is just ahead. I will have a report on that show in the next issue. From all indications, it should be a great show! REGIONAL MEETINGS HELD John Wilson, SPMC Governor from Milwaukee, reports suc- cess at two SPMC regional meetings held in April : the South Shore Coin Club, Milwaukee, April 12-14, and Central States Numismatic Society, Minneapolis, April 25-28. Both of these events were joint meetings held with the IBNS, our sister society. Interesting programs were given at each meeting, and the new green SPMC brochure that promotes the Cherry Hill Convention was distributed. The Pennsylvania book was also available, and copies were sold. Thanks, John and Nancy, for helping with, and hosting, these meetings. PENNSYLVANIA BOOK We are pleased to report that sales of the Society's new book, Pennsylvania Obsolete Notes and Scrip, by Richard T. Hoober, have been going well; from all indications it should do well for us, as Pennsylvania is a popular state. We will have copies at Memphis, and at Baltimore for the ANA Convention, as well as Cherry Hill, but they can also be ordered by mail — $28 to mem- bers; $35 to nonmembers : Order from: Richard J. Balbaton SPMC Book Sales Dept. 116 Fisher Street North Attleboro, Massachusetts 02760 A recent write up in COIN WORLD gave Dick's address as Maine, but he does still live in Massachusetts. The postal ab- breviations can be confusing, but MA is still Massachusetts. ARKANSAS BOOK At this writing the new book by Matt Rothert, Arkansas Obsolete Notes and Scrip, is at the printer, and we have been promised to have some copies at Memphis, so when you read this, you may already have picked yours up there. This book has sixteen pages of introduction, and 252 pages of regular text, covering note issues by over 250 issuers, with many historical photos and vignettes. The price for the Arkansas book is $17 to members, and $22 to nonmembers ; it can also be ordered from Richard J. Balbaton, 116 Fisher Street, North Attleboro, Massa- chusetts 02760. Paper Money Whole No. 118 ANA REGIONAL MEETING PLANNED The SPMC regional meeting at the ANA Convention will be held at a different time than was announced previously. The change was made to accommodate special tours some members may want to take to Washington, D.C. The meeting will be held on Friday, August 23, at 9:00 A.M. at the Hyatt Regency, the headquarters hotel in Baltimore. A program may be presented. As usual, the SPMC will have a table in the Club Midway in the Bourse Area and also at the Cherry Hill Convention in Novem- ber to promote the Society's books and memberships. CHERRY HILL, NEW JERSEY CONVENTION Plans are progressing well for the Cherry Hill Convention, and we expect a good turnout because of the location. Mark your calendar from November 14-17, and we hope to see many of you there. Dr. Nelson Page Aspen has been working on the educational program, and we have engaged some exceptional speakers. Please look in PAPER MONEY and the numismatic press for further developments, as they become available. For further information, contact William H. Horton, Jr., General Chairman, Box 293, Franklin, New Jersey 07416, or Wendell Wolka, Publicity Chairman, Box 366, Hinsdale, Illinois 60522. ELECTION OF GOVERNORS The candidates for the SPMC Board of Governors are intro- duced with this issue. Each year 5 Board Members are elected. Read over the candidates' backgrounds and make your choice. A mail ballot is enclosed with this issue. Ballots should be re- turned no later than November 1, 1985, in order to ensure that they will be counted in Cherry Hill. New Board Members will take office then. Exercise your right as a member, and vote for the candidates of your choice! Recruitment Report If the Society of Paper Money Collectors is to remain a leader in the field of syngraphics, a moderate growth rate must be maintained. 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 organization in numismatics. In keeping with this recruiting objective, the top recruiters will be recognized in our bi-monthly magazine. Also, at the Mem- phis 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.

Paper Money Whole No. 118 Page 187 MEET THE CANDIDATES For SPMC Board of Governors BOB COCHRAN Bob Cochran is a sales representative for Hewlett-Packard Company in St. Louis. He has pursued his specialty, St. Louis National Bank notes, since 1978. In addition to the SPMC, he is a member of the Missouri Numismatic Society and the St. Louis Numismatic Association. Bob enjoys sharing his hobby, and has made several presen- tations to senior citizens' groups and at retirement homes. He has learned quite a bit from these folks who were around when our older currency was in circulation. Bob has written several articles for Paper Money, and plans to write more. He states, "I support the effort to increase the membership and visibility of SPMC. I propose that the addresses of the SPMC Board members be published, to allow the membership to communicate with them. Further, I feel that the SPMC should try to develop a comprehensive, illustrated grading guide for paper money. I will pursue these objectives if elected." C. JOHN FERRERI John has been a member of the SPMC since 1969. He served as its treasurer from 1975 to 1979 and has been an active board member since 1976. During this time he served on various com- mittees and chaired others. Over the past fifteen years John has contributed numerous articles to Paper Money. He continues to work on the Connecticut volume of the SPMC Wismer update project. Other memberships include : the ANA, New England Numismatic Society, Currency Club of New England and many others. His collecting interests lie almost exclusively in the sphere of obsolete, or broken bank notes and scrip issues of the New England states. Collectors in the New England and New York areas have seen John's exhibits and have heard him speak at educational forums. DOUGLAS D. MURRAY A member of the S.P.M.C. for ten years, Douglas D. Murray is an avid researcher of large-size United States currency. In addi- tion to research that has been published in PAPER MONEY, he released at Memphis this year the results of a ten year research project, Handbook of United States Large Size Star Notes 1910-1929. Citing the previous lack of information on the sub- ject, Murray's research has given the hobby a useful guide to this major currency variety. Born in Marshall, Michigan, and now residing in Portage. Michigan, Murray is a life member of the Kalamazoo Numis- matic Club and the Paper Money Collectors of Michigan. He was editor of the P.M.C.M. publication The Rag Picker during 1981 and 1982. Murray, forty-three, and wife Cathy, thirty-nine, have been married sixteen years and are parents of adopted son James. eight. Although his wife is now confined to a wheelchair with multiple sclerosis, he has been able to attend all nine Memphis paper money conventions, and nearly all Michigan State con- ventions since 1975. A.N.A. and Central States conventions are attended when their proximity permits. Page 188 STEPHEN R. TAYLOR Steve is a member of the SPMC board and has served since 1979. He is also a member of the Board of Governors of the ANA and a candidate for the position of vice president in the 1985 elections. He currently holds membership in 33 Canadian and United States numismatic organizations and is President of the Garden State NA and the Middle Atlantic NA. Other active positions in- clude serving on the Board of Directors of GENA and the Vir- ginia NA as well as Chairman for the International Numismatic Fellowship of Rotarians. "Exhibiting is the other half of the fun in collecting" has been one of his favorite quotes. He is an active exhibitor and has won numerous awards for his exhibits including the ANA Best in Show in 1978. Steve has exhibited in twenty seven states as well as four Canadian provinces. He has developed an illustrated program on "How to Build an Exhibit" and has given this talk several times. He has also given numerous talks on paper money of the United States, his collecting specialty. He has appeared, almost monthly, as a guest speaker at a Young Numismatist program held in conjunction with a major convention, indicating that the paper money hobby can be fun. Steve completed a banking career that spanned 36 1/2 years ; he retired as a vice president in December 1983. He is active in his community and has served as campaign chairman in raising funds for the American Cancer Society and the United Way. He is presently a member of the Dover Rotary Club and serves on the Advance and Development Committee for the Episcopal Diocese of Delaware. Steve and his wife Beulah reside in their native Delaware. JOHN WILSON Paper Money Whole No. 118 John, a law enforcement officer, and his wife Nancy have ex- hibited their United States large-size and fractional currency notes at well over 100 shows. He currently holds membership in the ANA, ANS, IBNS, CSNS, PMCM, CCCC, GSNA, EPS. FCCB (an organizer), SCCS, CCRT, CWTS, TAMS, NOW. RHS, MNS and SSCC. John has been appointed to the organ- izing committee for the 1986 American Numismatic Association Convention to be held in Milwaukee. his hometown. Both John and his wife are active in civic organizations in- cluding a numismatic program for Boy Scouts. John is com- pleting a term as an SPMC Governor ; he said that he is proud to be renominated. Register of Stolen Bank Notes The Society of Paper Money Collectors plans to periodically publish a cumulative listing of serial numbers of United States banknotes, which have been reported as stolen. The informa- tion will be made available to all members, probably free or per- haps at cost, and also to any other interested persons. including nonmembers and selected law-enforcement officials. Subse- quent issues will be printed at suitable intervals, depending upon how quickly new reports of thefts and recoveries are made. Members and nonmembers who desire to submit lists of stolen banknotes may begin sending the information now. The listing must include a complete description of each missing note. including its serial number, and may include pertinent descrip- tive remarks, such as "autographed by Tate," "part of a change- over pair," etc., etc. Please also submit the name of the owner reporting the theft, the date the theft was reported, and the name, position, address and phone number of the law-enforce- ment or insurance-company agents who must be notified when a stolen note is observed ; also mention the police or insurance company case number applicable to the particular theft. Thus, if a collector or dealer happens to spot a stolen note, he will know immediately whom to contact to report its discovery. IMPORTANT! For legal reasons, the SPMC must require that each report of stolen notes MUST include a copy (a photocopy will do) of the official report made to either the police, the in- surance carrier, or both. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS to this requirement. Reports may be made even for notes that were stolen in the past. It is planned that serial numbers will thereafter be listed in- definitely until notes have been recovered. Furthermore, it is planned that our copies of the police or insurance reports will also be held indefinitely, which may facilitate delayed recovery by an owner when a police department has discarded very old reports of unsolved thefts. Collectors, law-enforcement personnel, executors of estates and trusts, etc., may now begin to submit information on pre- viously stolen banknotes. It is anticipated that the first pub- lication possibly may be in early 1986. Reports and inquiries may be addressed to : Bernard Schaaf, MD 321 North 22nd Street Lafayette, Indiana 47904 Do NOT submit stolen-note reports to the editor of PAPER MONEY.

Paper Money Whole No. 118 Page 193 '65 Editor's Corner 0 U O Le) Before the Memphis Convention, from which I have just re- turned. I had not prepared anything for this column. I honestly felt that for this issue I had nothing to say. I'm a firm believer of not filling space, physically or editorially, just because space is there. Well, now I do have something to say! The last issue of PAPER MONEY included an announcement that four SPMC members were seeking three ANA Board seats and one was unopposed as the candidate for vice president. Photographs and biographies of these four were sent to me, un- solicited. It has been intimated that favoritism was shown ; this is not the case. I, and probably no one else, would overtly be that stupid. The official announcement for all ANA candidates was announced in the June issue of The Numismatist. The May/- June issue of PAPER MONEY was prepared in April. Neverthe- less, I apologize to the following SPMC members who were not included in the list of candidates for the ANA: Grover C. Criswell, Leonard Glazer, Charles A. Fenwick and Sol Taylor. Today, a letter arrived from Sol Taylor. His misfortune is greater than any of those just mentioned : the ANA did not receive his biography and photograph. His candidacy—depending on the outcome of the election — could have suffered from this deletion in the official announcement. Now that I have humbled myself, I will extend another apology. During the Memphis Convention I wanted to person- ally meet all those dealers whom I know by name only and who advertise in PAPER MONEY. Numerous meetings, discussions and the time spent setting up and dismantling an exhibit kept me from meeting everyone. To those I didn't meet—we all ap- preciate your patronage.
