Paper Money Whole No. 119 Page 211 ON THE COVER. This is the 30th anniversary of the death of Albert Einstein (1879-1955); it is also the 80th anniversary of his discovery of the theory of relativity. It was 40 years ago that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Although it was Einstein who theoretically proved that the atom could be split, he was not in favor of using "the bomb" unless it was absolutely necessary. The look on his countenance, as seen on the 5 pound note of Israel (P34), seems to reflect what his secretary said when he heard the first bomb had been dropped on Japan: "The grief in his deep sigh could not be conveyed in words."

Copyright 1973 Ameri can Bank Note Co parry Page 212 Paper Money Whole No. 119 HILE most paper money collectors realize that the American Bank Note Company is involved in more than printing paper money, many of them might be surprised to learn that the company produced a record album cover for the rock-jazz group Chicago in 1973. The American Bank Note Company can trace its history through fifty different companies to an engraver named Robert Scot who worked in Philadelphia in 1795. Chicago can trace its history through two name changes to its beginning in Chicago in 1967 when it was formed by two school friends, Terry Kath and Walter Parazaider. Of the original seven members only one was not born in Chicago (Figure 1). Robert Lamm was born in Brooklyn and moved to Chicago when he was fifteen. Lamm was vocalist, pianist and also wrote many of the group's hits ; Terry Kath played guitar, banjo, accordion, bass and drums. Peter Cetera played bass, steel guitar, wrote songs and sang ; rounding out the group were Walter Parazaider, who played a variety of woodwinds, trumpeter Lee Loughnane, drummer Daniel Sera- phine and James Pankow, trombonist. Only Kath and Cetera were completely self taught, all the others had considerable formal musical training either in college or with private teachers. The group was first known as The Big Thing because Lamm kept saying the group's music was "the big thing"; their music was different from other rock groups of the time because they had added horns to the traditional rock band. Lamm character- ized the group in Downbeat (October 1970) by saying, "Our roots are basically rock, but we can and do play jazz." The group played small bars and clubs throughout the Mid- west in the late '60s without much success. In 1969 they went West to join forces with another school friend, James W. Guercio, who had earlier moved to Los Angeles and become a leading record producer. It was Guercio who suggested they change their name to Chicago Transit Authority and it was under this name that the group began to build a following. Guercio signed the group with Columbia Records and in 1969 their first album, entitled "Chi- cago Transit Authority" was recorded. The album was not im- mediately successful but their single "Make Me Smile" made the top ten ; this in turn increased album sales and the result was the first of many gold albums for the group. By the time their second album came out in 1970 they had shortened their name to Chicago, which was also the name of the album. Although music critics have often berated the group for their "safe" and "bland" music, Chicago has been extremely popular and all their albums have achieved gold or platinum status . Figure 2: A detail of the album cover showing typical bank note style geometric designs. Figure 3: At the bottom of the front of the album cover in eery small letters, not unlike on a bank note, is the copyright notice of the American Bank Note Company. Paper Money Whole No. 119 Page 213 For the most part the group has not given individual names to their albums, but have differentiated them by roman numerals : "Chicago II", "Chicago III", etc. It was the cover of "Chicago VI" that was produced by the American Bank Note Company. This cover was in the tradition of opulent covers for which the group was already famous. Released in June 1973, the album moved into the number one spot on the music charts in July and stayed there until August. The cover was intaglio printed in blue on buff (Figure 2). Both sides of the album are the same except for the copyright lines at the bottom of the front of the album (Figure 3). On both sides of the light brown record sleeve are stock vignettes of the American Bank Note Company : "America" and a railroad scene (Figure 4 and 5). There are at least two variations on the original album : the cassette version of the album and a lithograph album printed in purple without any vignettes on the record sleeve ; this seems to be a reprint of the original cover to be sold by discount houses. Any or all of these American Bank Note Company items make an interesting addition to a bank note collection.

Figure 5: This railroad vignette appears on the other side of the record sleeve of the "Chicago VI" album.

Page 214 Paper Money Whole No. 119 CJ1$, THE PAPER COLUMN by Peter Huntoon National Bank Notes with Treasury Serial 1 and 1000000 Part II This article continues the listing of treasury seria — and 1000000 national bank notes begun in the last issue of PAPER MONEY. The treasury serial numbering system is explained in detail in "Evo- lution of Treasury Serial Numbering on National Bank Notes," PAPER MONEY, vol. 23, pages I 18 , 1-185. BEGINNING TREASURY SERIALS ON ORIGINAL SERIES SHEETS PREFIX LETTERS With the exception of the 1-1-2-2 and part-plate combina- tions, all Original Series treasury serials began with sets of num- bers that did not have prefix letters. It did not take long before the popular combinations such as the 1 1 1 2, 5 5 5 5 and 10-10-10-20 ran through the first million serials. The solution at this early stage was to convert from red to blue numbers for the second million. With the advent of the third million, it became standard practice to use a prefix letter. A decision was made in 1869 to add prefix letters to most other groups of treasury serials that did not already have them. The result as shown on Table 1 was that letters were rather randomly chosen from the incomplete alphabet available and prefixed to the then current treasury serial number in each group. According to the ledgers, prefix letters were never added to treasury serials for the 50-100, 500-500-500-500 and 1000- 1000-1000-1000 combinations. No 500-500-500-1000 sheets were printed after the 1869 decision, so of course none of these have prefixed treasury serials either. A CASE OF DUPLICATED TREASURY SERIALS The most interesting combination in these records is 10-50- 50-100, which was used by only one bank, the Kensington National Bank of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, charter 544. Three Original Series printings were made from this unique plate, the second being a part-plate printing consisting only of the 50-50-100 subjects. Table 2 lists these printings. Notice dif- ferent sets of treasury serials were assigned to each combination. What becomes interesting in this special case is that the last 10-50-50-100 Original Series printing was made after prefix let- ters were added to the serials. They just happened to use the let- ter A to prefix this last printing and it began with serial A349, a number that continued from where the first 10-50-50-100 print- ing had left off. Notice however that the treasury serial set as- signed to the 50-50-100 part-plate combination already had used serials A349 through A370. As a result, these same treasury numbers were used twice on Kensington $50s and $100s. Consequently you could find two notes from this bank of the same denomination from the same plate position with the same treasury serial number! As shown on Table 2, the bank serials were consecutive on the $50s and $100s regardless of whether they were from the 10-50-50-100 or 50-50-100 printings. Therefore the bank serials would have been different. EXOTIC FIRST CHARTER PLATES Numerous odd plate and part-plate combinations were used in the First Charter issues. Table 4 lists those that were made for five or fewer banks. The least used was the 500-500-500-1000 plate made for the Western National Bank of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This unique plate was only used once in Feb- ruary, 1866. Each plate or part-plate combination required its own treasury serial numbering set. Obviously this introduced a great deal of unwanted bookkeeping everywhere in the system. With the inception of the Second Charter issues, available plate combinations were reduced and standardized to the 5 5 5 5, 10-10-10-10, 10-10-10-20 and 50-100 combinations. The 50-50-50-100 replaced the 50-100 in 1910, so nothing but four subject plates were in use after that time. Even though the manufacture of odd plate combinations ceased with the Second Charter period, their use for First Charter issues continued until the First Charters ran out. For example, the last printings from the following plates were : 10-10-20-50 (1891), 20-20-20-20 (1895), 20-20-20-50 (1900), 20-20-50-100 (1900), 50-50 (1899) and 100-100 (1891). The 20-20-20-50 combination was not widely used. Between 1892 and 1900 the First National Bank of Rondout, New York, charter 2493, required the only printings from the combination. T ABLE 1 lists the beginning treasury serial number for each Original Series sheet combination. Each combination was assigned its own set of numbers. The only pattern that seems to emerge in the choice of the first number is that they tend to increase for the larger denomination combinations. Four unusual Original Series combinations were created when printings were made when using selected subjects from larger plates. These were the 20, 20-50, 50 and 50-50-100 combinations respectively printed from 10-10-10-20, 10-10- 20-50, 50-100 and 10-50-50-100 combinations. Each of the part-plate combinations was assigned an independent set of treasury serials, all of which were printed in blue ink. _Limitte .9*,-1:1.CCIAtigge)440411Y 1, 1 1 1;4,44w ts six Imo to- jj A. , 1i 2:0* _ Wilt ill r M.O.

Table 3 shows the delivery dates for the first date backs, and the last shipments from the bureau for the designs that they replaced. I was sur- prised to learn that Series of 1902 red seals continued to be printed and delivered well into December, even though produc- tion of Series of 1902 date backs had already begun. The ex- planation for this overlap is unknown to me. Notice on the other hand that shipments of Series of 1882 brown backs and date backs did not overlap. The following sheet combinations were printed during this transition in both the 1882 and 1902 series: 5-5-5-5, 10-10-10- 10, 10-10-10-20 and 50-50-50-100. Series of 1882 10-10-10- 10 and 50-50-50-100 date backs continued to be printed until the series expired in 1922. Similarly, 1902 50-50-50-100 date backs continued to be printed until 1926. These late date back printings were interspersed with printings from the new designs. The result was an alternating sequence of designs that were treasury numbered in sequence using the appropriate treasury number set for the series and combination. For example, the rare 1882 50-50-50-100 value backs were printed between February, 1919, and October, 1920, with low and high treasury serials A161090 and A170859 (Huntoon, 1971). However, 50-50-50-100 Series The Series of 1902 date to plain back 10-10-10-20 treasury serial changeover occurred in the high serials of the NB block during 1915. The Powell note shown here is a date back, the Rock Springs is a plain back. END OF THE DATE BACKS The Series of 1882 value backs and Series of 1902 blue seal plain backs began after the Aldrich-Vreeland Act expired on June 30, 1915. For the first time in the history of national bank note issues the treasury serial numbers (and bank numbers) did not revert to 1 with the start of the new designs. This fact has been a source of continuing annoyance for collectors for two reasons. First, the delivery records to the comptroller for this period have been lost so we do not know the changeover treasury serials. Second, the comptroller bank ledgers com- monly show the day and month for deliveries from the bureau but during the changeover a large number of entries omit the year. The result is that we have no way of knowing when the date back issues ceased for a large number of banks. of 1882 date back printings are mixed in this same range. The last 1882 50-50-50-100 date back was printed on August 27, 1921, almost a year after the last value back from the same plate combination. Unfortunately there seems to be no record of the high 1882 50-50-50-100 date back treasury serial. The intermixing of Series of 1902 date and plain back print- ings continued until 1926, right past the phase out of the treasury serials. These late 50-50-50-100 date back printings gave rise to oddities such as date backs with duplicate bank serials, no regional letters, and even engraved signatures, all of which were late innovations. See Huntoon (1973a, b) for details. I have observed Series of 1902 date back $50s and $100s with both A and B prefix letters, an entirely expected result based on the foregoing. The lowest treasury serial number that I Paper Money Whole No. 119 Page 217 owned was a $50 1902 date back issued by the First National Bank of Houston, Texas (1644) serial B494-4100-D. This was from a 50-50-50-100 plate and was printed on or just after December 8, 1922. The mixing of 1882 10-10-10-10 and 50-50-50-100 date and value backs, and 1902 50-50-50-100 date and plain backs prevents us from being able to establish a changeover treasury serial for these combinations. Fortunately the breaks were clean in the 5-5-5-5 and 10-10-10-20 combinations. At this writing I have been able to bracket the changeover pairs for the following combinations : 1882 5-5-5-5 date to value backs - R612736- R790804 ; 1882 10-10-10-20 date to value backs - T469716- T597574 ; and 1902 10-10-10-20 date to plain backs - N806462B-N976041B. All I know about the 1905 5-5-5-5 date to plain back transition is that it occurs high in the MB block of serials. If you can close these gaps, I would very much appre- ciate photocopies of the face and back of the relevant notes. DISCUSSION This concludes a series of articles that synthesizes all that we currently know about treasury serial numbers on National Bank notes. Certainly it is academically interesting to know just which banks got the first and last numbers in each series, or which banks got the 1000000-1 changeover pairs. But it is my opinion that the biggest contribution in these data is that of providing the dates during which specific groups of serials were printed. Re- member, of course, that the sheets were in many cases issued several years after they were printed. For example, if you are a proud owner of a First Charter note, let us say a Series of 1875 $20, you can easily determine rather accurately when it was printed. First use the Van Belkum data to identify which plate combination was used to print your note. Next find that combination in these tables and look up the ap- propriate treasury serials and corresponding dates of use. Your 1875 $20 could have been printed anytime between 1875 and 1902 depending on the charter number of the bank. Knowing how old the note is will allow you to better appreciate its survival. You will probably be surprised to learn how young many of your Series of 1875 and Series of 1882 brown backs really are! Table 1.

Connect the points with a smooth curve and you can now accurately esti- mate within a couple months when any particular serial was printed. There are lots of other uses for these data. I am sure you will discover some and have a good time using them. REFERENCES CITED Huntoon, P., "The rare 1882 denomination reverse $50 and $100 notes" : PAPER MONEY, v. 10, 1971, p. 56-58.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Enthusiastic and cooperative personnel in both the National Archives and Bureau of Engraving and Printing helped me access the data sum- marized in this report. William Sherman of the National Archives looked up entries that I either missed or incorrectly copied. He gave these data priority in his work schedule so that you could have the most complete compilation possible as soon as possible. My colleages William Raymond and John Hickman are acknowl- edged for sincerely sharing enthusiasm, excitement and interest in these results. Their camaraderie gives encouragement, life and meaning to my work and their support is long overdue for acknowledgement. ■ Page 226 Paper Money Whole No. 119 American Bank Note Co. Loses USPS Contract "American Commemorative Panels" Now Produced by Jeffries Banknote Co. T HE U.S. Postal Service (USPS) hascontracted with the Jeffries BanknoteCo. of Los Angeles to produce the American Commemorative Panels (ACP), beginning with the first four released in 1985, Nos. 237-240. The "panels" are 8 1/2 x 11 pages devoted to a new stamp issue, with a block of four of the stamps, background information and prints of complemen- tary steel engravings; the engravings, of course, are the syngraphist's primary interest, since they are derived from the printer's bank note history. USPS thus ended the involvement of the American Bank Note Co., which had produced the series since its inception in 1972. Correspondence with Dickey B. Rustin, acting general manager of the Philatelic Marketing Division of USPS, elicited the following statement dated April 29, 1985: "The contract with American Bank Note Company to pro- duce these panels expired in 1984, and the contract to produce the 1985 panels was awarded to Jeffries Banknote Company on a competitive bid basis. Both companies responded to our in- vitation to bid on the 1985 contract, and both were judged to be capable of producing a product meeting our specifica- tions—including the use of intaglio printed vignettes. Jeffries was awarded the contract because their bid price was lower than the American Bank Note's bid. The printing of the intaglio vignettes is done on the contractor's premises with the same printing equipment used for the printing of other security items." A press release from Jeffries printed in the June 29, 1985 edi- tion of Stamps magazine carried this information : "To personalize this year's collection, the engravers at Jeffries Banknote Company searched through their extensive 90-year- old archives for just the right engraving to complement the stamp. In addition, the company worked with students from USC's School of Journalism to research and write an informa- tive description of the stamp subjects. Lastly, they coordinated with the Minnesota Diversified Industries, a private corporation which provides employment opportunities for disabled indi- viduals, to add the final touch of hand mounting the stamps on the panels." In this reviewer's opinion, it is rather foolhardy of Jeffries to boast about their 90-year-old archives in view of the depth of the 19th century archives of American Bank Note and its roots in the 18th century. Ninety years ago the heyday of bank note en- graving, especially for private banks, had long passed. Jeffries is noted more for stock certificates and related security paper than for its bank notes and stamps. (A worthy project for specialists would be the researching of Jeffries' postal and currency prod- ucts to establish just what direction connections their archives can yield for the design of future commemorative panels.) (It is known that they printed a long series of engraved stamps for Panama picturing Popes; they are unlisted by Scott because of what is considered the "black blot" character of the series.) A random sampling of vignettes used on the first one hundred or so panels (see "Sources of Information" below) reveals the antiquity of the vignettes, their possibilities for matching-up with currency and stamps, and their distinguished origin, many hav- ing come from pioneer bank note concerns that merged into American Bank Note in 1858 and 1879: No. 1, Wildlife, 1972—The deer vignette is found on the $2 note of the Northwestern Bank, Warren, Ohio and on the 1 proprietary revenue stamp of the Union Match Co. No. 41, Christmas, Currier & Ives design —The ship "City of Hartford" engraved by Danforth, Wright & Co. was used on a note of the Orange Bank of Indiana, 1854; the "sleighing" vignette was done by Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Co., ca. 1832-34. No. 42, Christmas —The vignette "Thunder and Lightning" was done by James Smillie for American Bank Note in 1877 and used in 1887 on a stock certificate for the Cincinnati Gas Light & Coke Co. No. 43, Benjamin West —The vignette "Benjamin West" was engraved by Draper, Toppan, Longacre, ca. 1835-39 and used on a $1000 note of the Bank of the United States. No. 66, Benjamin Franklin —The vignette of In- dependence Hall was done by Bald, Cousland & Co., ca. 1853-58, and used on a diploma for the Yorktown Centennial Celebration of 1881. No. 67. Signing of the Declaration of Independence — The vignette of that event was engraved by Charles Toppan, 1840. No. 68, Olympics 1976—The vignette of the Acropolis was done by Charles Skinner for American Bank Note and used on a note of the Banque Nationale de Greece. No. 81, Peace Bridge —The beaver vignette was done by Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Edson, 1847-58 and used on a Bank of Toronto note, 1892. No. 91, Captain Cook—The coconut palm vignette, done by the National Bank Note Co., ca. 1869-79, was used on a $50 gold note of the Republic of Hawaii. No. 102, American Trees —James Smillie worked over the Bald, Cousland die "The Palm" for use on an Imperio do Brazil note of 1877. One would assume that for the initial offering, Jeffries would have tried to use similar engraved vignettes to please the match- up collectors. However, such match-ups do not seem feasible with the vignettes described below. If Jeffries is to maintain the iconographic style established by American Bank Note Co., it may have to resort to modern versions of period-style art. The question then arises, does it, or indeed does any modern con- cern, have the artisans capable of emulating the bank note style of the Smillies, Toppan, Delnoce, and other engravers of the past? by BARBARA R.

In view of the recently proclaimed financial crisis in USPS and its consequent curtailment of philatelic promotion, and even cancellation of a scheduled 14t Seasons Greetings stamp and a souvenir card for National Stamp Collecting Month for 1985, it can scarcely gamble with the popularity and quality of its ACP series if sales are to be maintained. In the words of a Coin World article of July 31, 1974, "The American Bank Note Co., . . was portraying vivid Americana in steel-engraved vignettes on its products long before the advent of the camera and more modern means of graphic reproduction . .." These vignettes and their relationship to philately and syngraphics are responsi- ble for the success of the ACP series. Random, derivative, period-type art of modern origin may well spoil that success. Description of the Vignettes on the First Four Jeffries Panels No. 237, Jerome Kern —three vignettes, the first, a modern cowgirl with a rifle, the second, a street lamplighter scene and the date 1886, and the third, a group of people in period costumes boarding what would seem to be a show boat. The last one appears to be primarily an etching, with some of the figures in outline form only. The "JBCo" copyright symbol appears on the first two, but not on the third. No. 238, Mary McLeod Bethune —three vignettes, the first is the seal of Bethune-Cookman College, the second an etching of a log cabin scene, and the third a copyrighted eagle against a shield over crossed quill pens and an acorn.

No. 239, Duck decoys —The largest amount of space is taken up by what seems to be an uncopyrighted woodland scene of a cabin beside a body of water with a duck in flight and two in the water; those waterborne birds are crude in execution and the entire scene is very dark and murky. A second vignette consists of three ducks, or they may be decoys; from the lifeless eyes it is difficult to tell the difference.

Special Olympics —In addition to a lithographed logo of the Games, there are two small vignettes, one of a skater facing directly forward and another of a skier and his instructor. A large vignette across the bottom of the panel consists of the two hemispheres of the globe resting on typical bank note scroll- work. Sources of Information on Commemorative Panels Two organizations have embraced the panels in their spheres of interest, The Essay-Proof Society and the Souvenir Card Col- lectors Society (SCCS). Articles on them can be found in The Essay-Proof Journal, Nos. 126-127 (Spring and Summer 1975) , 139 (Summer 1978), 143 (Summer 1979), 145-46 (Winter and Spring 1980), 149 (Winter 1981), 151 (Summer 1981) and 163 (third quarter 1984). The references to Journals 139-151 are to actual listings of the origins and previous uses of the vignettes on approximately the first hundred panels as fur- nished directly by American Bank Note Co. Various issues of the SCCS Journal have also carried references to the panels. A formal listing of the panels has been included in Scott's U.S. Stamp Catalogue Specialized, although the listing in the 1985 catalogue appears to be a perfunctory afterthought on the second-to-the-last page, entirely out of normal sequence. In- deed, it is merely a repetition of the listing in the 1980 edition, which covered issues into 1979. The future of the listing in the hands of Amos Press, new owners of the Scott catalogues, is unknown at this writing. At any rate, its continuation or deletion will have a definite impact on the demand for the panels, as will Jeffries' future performance.* ■ 'An up-to-date listing with rather unrealistically high valuations is in- cluded in the USPS annual publication, The Postal Service Guide to U.S. Stamps, available at most post offices. AT YOUR BANK ASK FOR AND THEN USE $2 BILLS Paper Money Whole No. 119 Page 229 Torrey & Mead Notes of Manchester, New Jersey by WILLIAM S. DEWEY A BACKGROUND story and listing of the Samuel W. andWilliam A. Torrey obsolete notes of 1861 was serializedin four issues of PAPER MONEY during 1983. The July-August edition pointed out (pages 173 and 174) that the original partnership was changed in late 1862, or thereabouts, to William A. and his younger brother, John Torrey. Jr. Shortly after that, a third partner. Solomon H. Mead, was taken into the firm. This third partnership was dissolved as of July 31, 1865, leaving William Torrey to continue the store business on his own. As previously defined, a series of notes was issued by the ori- ginal partners, Samuel W. and William A. Torrey. A listing of those notes was covered in the November/December issue of the magazine (pages 274 and 275). What was not known at the time of publication was whether any notes of the other partner- ships were either issued or known to exist. Justification for a current update of the Torrey currency story is that a 25 cent note of the Torrey and Mead combination has just recently surfaced! Even more astounding is the fact that the note was contemporaneously altered to indicate the dissolution of the Torrey & Mead operation ! We are now assured that the Torrey-Mead partnership did, indeed, issue (1) at least one de- nomination of currency, and (2) altered some, at least, to indi- cate a final change in ownership of the business. Unfortunately. the only specimen of that rare note is in badly deteriorated condition. A double size enlargement of the piece reveals that it was originally printed for the firm of Torrey & Mead, of Manchester, New Jersey. It was made payable in mer- chandise at the Torrey store, in the same manner as the S.W. & W.A. Torrey currency that preceded it. The date on the note, as printed, is July 1st, 1863. E. Wetzler, of 100 William Street, New York City, did the engraving work and printing. W.A. Wescott signed the note as "Agent" for the company. As with so many other issues of the period, the reverse side is blank. Careful inspection of the double-size illustration reveals the following important alterations, done in red ink, and now almost indiscernable : 1) The words "& MEAD" are partially obliterated by four straight lines. 2) Above the "T" in "TORREY" is the name abbreviation "Wm." in script, just barely noticeable. 3) Atop the "J" of "July" a script "a" appears, while over the "Iy" a script "g" is seen. 4) A "5" is inscribed by hand on top of the "3" in the printed date "1863". The significance of the above changes is at once evident, and in line with the story details published in 1983. The first two items bear out the contract that broke up the Torrey-Mead part- nership leaving William Torrey to continue the business alone. (See page 174 of the July/August 1983 issue). The contract, bearing a date of August 1, 1865, provided for dissolving the tri- party ownership as of July 31st of that year. Thus, currency issued by William A. Torrey, alone, would be expected to date no earlier than August 1st of 1865. Items 3 and 4 above validate that date. Finally, the printed date of July 1, 1863 is unquestionably the start-up date of the partnership that associated Solomon Mead with the Torrey brothers in the store. Until now, no evidence of that kind was forthcoming. John Torrey, it will be recalled. had replaced brother Samuel in the business late in 1862 (PAPER (Continued on p. 243) 1 1 L2,0100, j.: 02 I: \ITO CtS, // 4 ', Vie:, V /40 y y V t■4 T. 1 T. f tAl f",4111)1. 230 Paper Money Whole No. 119 Railroad Notes and Scrip of the United States, the Confederate States and Canada by RICHARD T.

DANIEL I T WAS a quaint little old man whom I met some days ago in a little, foreign looking money changer's shop near Bowl- ing Green. He might have played Shylock without making up — patriarchal white beard and hair, keen black eyes and curved nose—but a very amicable and good natured Shylock I found him, with not a suggestion in his manner of any desire to exact even one ounce of flesh for the time I took in asking curious questions about the currencies of all nations. I found the old man peculiarly apt in the information I sought. He had handled money in nearly every capital in Europe. Good as Gold Everywhere "This," he said, as he picked up a Bank of England note, "is the plainest piece of currency to be found in any country in the world, and it is good for gold in any land under the sun where white men or yellow live." The Bank of England note is about five inches by eight in dimensions, and is printed in black ink on Irish linen water-lined paper, plain white and with ragged edges, which lacks the oily smoothness of our own bank notes. "It looks easy enough to counterfeit," remarked my ancient guard, "but, in fact, the Bank of England suffers as little from counterfeiters as any similar institution in the world. The notes are never reissued, but are burned as soon as they come back to the bank, and the paper is made for that sole purpose, and that is the greatest safeguard. In sending a note by mail or express the note is always cut in two and the halves sent separately. "The showiest currency to be found outside of China are the notes issued by the Banque de France," he continued, as he picked out a piece of paper that resembled a small show bill. The paper itself is white and water lined, printed in blue and black, with numerous mythological and allegorical pictures, and running in denominations from the twenty franc note to the 1,000 franc. "Not easy to counterfeit, but far from artistic," was the remark of the old man, as he pulled out a variety of Italian notes of all shapes, sizes and colors. The smaller bills—five and ten lire notes — are about the size and shape of our own old twenty-five cent "shinplaster" fractional currency, and printed on white paper in pink, blue and carmine inks, and ornamented with a finely engraved vignette of King Umberto. The larger notes are about the size of our "greenbacks," and are elaborately en- graved, but to my eye they are neither beautiful nor artistic. They are worth more away from home than they were a few years ago, though, owing to King Umberto's wise rule. "But here is your elaborate bank note," continued the old man, as he brought to light a gorgeous piece of paper about 4 inches by 10. It was the hundred ruble note of Russia. The note was barred from top to bottom with all the colors of the rainbow, blended as when thrown through a prism. In the center, in bold relief, stood a large, finely executed vignette of Empress Cather- ine I. This was in black. The other engraving was not at all intricate or elaborate, but was well done in dark and light brown or black inks. "The Russians look upon that as the height of artistic work," said Shylock, "and it has one merit. The paper is made by a secret process, and the note has never been counterfeited. It is also worth its face value in every capital in Europe and Asia. The smaller Russian notes, the twenty-five and fifty ruble bills, are about one-third smaller and not as gorgeously colored. The smallest denomination in Russian currency is five rubles, about $2.50 in United States currency. In Two Languages "Here is a peculiar bill, but a very good idea, I think," continued the money changer, as he showed me another bill. "This is from Austria, and, like all His Majesty Francis Joseph's currency, is in two languages. On one side it is Austrian and on the other Hungarian, for the benefit of the Magyars." The bill was printed on a light colored thick paper, which showed none of the silk fiber marks or geometric lines used in our currency, as protection against counterfeiting. But, like the German currency, each bill bears upon it a terrible warning to counterfeiters, threatening penitentiary confinement "to any one who shall make, sell or have in his possession any counter- feit or facsimile of this bill." The engraving is profuse with angel heads and artistic scroll work. The lowest denomination in cur- rency is the one florin, worth about forty cents of our money. The highest bill is the 1,000 florin note. The German currency is rather artistic. The bills are printed in green and black upon paper lighter than our gold certificates, and about an inch wider. They run in denominations from five marks to 1,000 marks. Their later bills are printed on the silk fiber paper. The Norwegians have a curious currency, but it is rarely seen here, because it circulates very little among the common people and the class that comes here as immigrants. These stick to their copper and silver coins and shun the little cinnamon brown bills of their government, which are about the size of our old "shinplasters." The Chinese paper currency is in red, white and yellow paper, with gilt lettering and gorgeous little hand drawn devices. The bills, to the ordinary financier, might pass for wash checks or prayer papers in a Joss house, but they are worth good money in the Flowery Kingdom. South American currency, in most countries, is about the size and general appearance of our own bills, except that cinnamon brown and slate blue are the prevailing colors and Spanish and Portuguese the prevelant languages engraved on the face. — New York Star. — Bismarck (N.

We are now gearing up for the SPMC-sponsored Cherry Hill Conven- tion November 14-17, and look forward to seeing many of you there. MEMPHIS 1985 From all indications, the 9th International Paper Money Show in Memphis, sponsored by the Memphis Coin Club, was a suc- cess. A total of 1,030 individuals registered for the 3-day show, and there were 35 exhibitors. Mike Crabb, show chairman, says plans are already underway for the 10th annual show, sched- uled for 1986. The SPMC Board of Governors met June 15, with several matters of interest and importance discussed: • We voted to increase 1986 membership dues to $15 from $12. While we were hoping to delay this, it was felt a small increase now would be easier than a larger one later. Printing and postage costs have increased, and we really have been late in increasing dues. So please bear with us! • We agreed to wait until after the SPMC Cherry Hill, New Jersey International Paper Money Convention in November to decide whether to affiliate with a show be- ing sponsored by the Professional Currency Dealers As- sociation in St. Louis in November of 1986. • We discussed activities for the Society's 25th Anniver- sary in 1986, and are considering holding a joint meeting with the International Bank Note Society in 1986 at the A.N.A. Convention in Milwaukee. • We discussed the possibility of reassigning authors for unfinished books in the Society's D.C. Wismer update series. Roger Durand is working on this and hopes to be in touch with authors soon, to check on their progress. • We approved a measure, proposed by Dr. Bernard Schaaf, to publish a list of stolen notes, including serial numbers, as a service to SPMC members and the hobby. The lists will be published separately from, but included with, issues of PAPER MONEY. Police and insurance reports should be submitted with the list of notes. An an- nouncement about this program was printed in the previous issue. Thanks to Bernie for proposing, and for initially agreeing to coordinate this program. • There was some discussion for about a souvenir card, and Mike Crabb was appointed chairman of a committee to examine the possibilities of producing a high-quality 1986 card at a lower cost to the Society. Following the Board Meeting, a general meeting was held. with a most interesting and humorous presentation by Bob Baby of Memphis about a collection of the world's worst condition set of Educational Notes. The judging of the exhibits for the SPMC Best of Show award resulted in a tie, with Gene Hessler and Mart Delger sharing the honors. Gene Hessler had an exhibit titled "Czechoslovak Designer Max Svabinsky: His Complete Banknotes Works." The five-case display had paper money, vignettes, stamps and other works of the late 19th and early 20th century designer. Mart Delger also received the first ever best-in-show exhibit award of the Fractional Currency Collectors Club for his exhibit titled "United States Fractional Currency Wide Margin Speci- men Proofs: Type Set with Selected Varieties. In six cases Delger displayed 40 pieces of fractional currency proofs with wide margins, including first issue postage currency issues. Some of the proofs displayed were printed on paper water- marked CSA captured aboard the Confederate States of America blockade-runner Bermuda. Friday night, before the Hickman & Oakes auction, an infor- mal SPMC cocktail party was enjoyed by many attendees. Hors d'oeurves and beverages were served. BOOK PROGRAM The Society's latest books (in addition to others) were avail- able at the SPMC table at the show in Memphis. The Pennsyl- vania book ($28 to members, $35 to non-members) has been selling well, and the newest addition to the series, Arkansas Ob- solete Notes and Scrip by Matt Rothert, was released at the show. Matt was on hand to do some autographing, which no doubt added to sales at the show. Due to a larger size than an- ticipated (258 pages!) the Arkansas book will sell for a bit more than we had planned— $17 to members and $22 to non- members. You can order any of the SPMC books, postpaid, from: R. J. Balbaton SPMC Book Sales Department 116 Fisher Street North Attleboro, MA 02760 A complete list of Society books is shown on the second page of this and each issue of PAPER MONEY. Order your books to- day and complete your sets of the SPMC books—or order the one you need for reference and research. DUES NOTICE-1986 You will find enclosed with this issue your dues notice for 1986. Please take a moment now to send in your 1986 dues; the annual dues, starting in 1986, are $15. Your cooperation in renewing promptly will help to minimize the cost of sending our "second notice" statements. As the increase was just passed in June, we thought it best to enclose it with this issue, while the subject was fresh in mind. • Pay your dues promptly. • Fill out and keep your 1986 membership card with your name and the year 1986. Your membership number ap- pears on your mailing envelope. • Check the mailing label and make any necessary correc- tions. Please print any changes and mail to Gary Lewis, Secretary. This is important so that we can keep the mailing list up to date and so you will continue to receive your magazine regularly. Page 234 Paper Money Whole No. 119 CHERRY HILL, NEW JERSEY CONVENTION Things are really shaping up for the International Paper Money Convention, sponsored by SPMC, to be held November 14-17, 1985 at Cherry Hill, New Jersey. At this point some dealer tables are still being sold (as I write this in late July), and final arrangements are being made for the program and activ- ities. Further details about the event are found elsewhere in this issue, including a tentative program schedule. With the many dealers in attendance, exhibits, educational programs, awards breakfast, auctions, BEP programs, etc., there will be plenty of things to see and do, and you will want to attend this important numismatic event if at all possible. For further information, con- tact William H. Horton, Jr., General Chairman, Box 293, Franklin, New Jersey 07416, or Wendell Wolka, Publicity Chairman, Box 366, Hindale, Illinois 60522. ELECTION OF GOVERNORS Your election ballot of SPMC Board of Governors was in- cluded with the July-August issue of PAPER MONEY, along with biographies of candidates. By now you should have re- turned the ballot, so it can be counted in Cherry Hill. New Board Members will take office then, and officers for the coming two years will be elected at that time by the Board. Ballots should be returned by November 1 to the Secretary, Gary E. Lewis, P.O. Box 4751, N. Ft. Myers, Florida 33903. Well, that's about all I have for now. I look forward to seeing many of you at the Convention in Cherry Hill in November! 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 Cherry Hill 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. Last 2 month period Total Sept. -Sept.

Souvenir cards printed from intaglio-engraved plates created another, relatively inexpensive, field for collectors. For a few dollars it was possible to have an intaglio-engraved face or back, or both, of a note that was otherwise out of reach for most col- lectors. The continued issuance of these cards prompted the founding of the Souvenir Card Collectors Society (SCCS). There are coin, bank note, medal and stamp oriented groups, so, a society for souvenir card collectors was inevitable, and it serves this purpose. The society sparked interest in what is known as "forerunner" cards; this in turn stimulated a general interest in intaglio engraving—both were good for the hobby. Until a few years ago, collectors looked forward to the annual events that sponsored official, intaglio-engraved souvenir cards printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing or American Bank Note Co. (There are a few security printers capable of producing intaglio prints, but their archives do not include vig- nettes actually used on bank notes.) Then, some saw the creation of pseudo-souvenir cards as an avenue to reap some income. Now not a month goes by without some club or organization announcing that a "souvenir card" will be issued to com- memorate an anniversary, event or what appears to be merely a way to bring in some revenue. These cards, with few excep- tions, are nothing more than photographs of bank notes or stamps, printed on a card that resembles souvenir card stock ; more often than not the paper is more like writing paper. The inexperienced collector, eager to maintain a "complete" collec- tion, orders these offset, non-intaglio-printed items at a cost often similar to official cards. Sooner or later — I hope sooner— the collector discovers that it is impossible to keep up with this plethora of privately issued cards, and that quality is lacking in most. Perhaps the issuing club made a few bucks, but, many collectors, as a result, have been deceived and have possibly lost interest in all souvenir cards. For this very reason the SPMC has discontinued issuing intaglio-engraved cards produced by American Bank Note Co. Although there is no U.S. Government restriction in repro- ducing U.S. stamps in color, there is a broad restriction that applies to U.S. bank notes, and until the law is changed we must abide by it. The issuance of a photograph of a U.S. bank note, actual size, on a piece of paper with some copy that refers to the anniversary of XYZ Club does not fulfill any of the U.S. Secret Service requirements. It is not only deceptive: it is illegal. The influx of investors and speculators, a few years ago, damaged the coin field, and did a moderate amount of damage to the paper money community. This can be called outside in- terference. But, when dozens and dozens of clubs issue pseudo- souvenir cards, the damage comes from within. Perhaps the in- tent was naively honorable, but, if one looks at it objectively, pseudo-souvenir cards add nothing to the strength of the hob- by — they only weaken it. The souvenir card field could have remained healthy and continued in that state for many years, perhaps indefinitely, but, declining prices for many cards indicate otherwise. "The Plate Printers Union Local, at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, has announced (in the SCCS Journal of Spring. 1985) that, in a modest effort to encourage and stimulate the collecting and study of intaglio-printed souvenir cards, they have made available to the Souvenir Card Collectors Society 2,000 cards to be sold to collectors." (Editor's emphasis.) This should be the purpose of any souvenir card issue. In my opinion, all journals, when making an announcement concerning a privately-issued card, should specify that the card is not an intaglio-engraved card, and should make that assumption unless the issuer can prove otherwise. The collector needs accurate information and it is the responsibility of the journals, magazines and newspapers to dispense it. I sincerely hope that official intaglio-engraved souvenir cards continue to be issued, but, a total of six cards each year is sufficient. Letters to the Editor The article by Bob Cochran [in the March/April issue] proved very in- teresting. Such historical articles is what keeps me a member of the SPMC. Herman L. Boraker I applaud you on the continued excellent quality of our magazine. The several dozen of us "ragpickers" here in the St. Louis area always look forward to receiving it. . Bob Cochran New Issue The Central Bank of Egypt has put into circulation, on June 16, 1985. a new 25 piastre note. The previous 25 piastre note (P-33B) bears a hawk; the new note has an eagle.

Ahmed Elseroui Cairo, Egypt Hamilton Bank Note Co. I found your own article on the Hamilton Bank Note Co. to be of par- ticular interest since I have for many years collected representative ex- amples of the work of each bank note company (including such firms as the Chemical Bank Note Co.). You have filled in some gaps for me and in return I'll add such data as I can from my collection. You state that the company was founded in 1880. According to their letterhead, the company was founded in 1881. In the early 1900s their address was 88 & 90 Gold Street. Later, when George C. Field was president, Hamil- ton Bank Note Engraving & Printing Co. was located at 142 Adams (i2,7eztaaetive, 7aeved nirrnin Azds5 tO dr,1111,1b., nen, . rnal‘n, funlity on an, n.onn, t.nnnk Innonn at in in, loon nf nin,trnn,,ortwi. `ma Gamins, natellnttin nun*, ducky Om, t,forenennr ntarted.

By the way, the August Seebeck you mention was vice president under Mr. Field, at least for a time. The firm did a wide variety of work in addition to that mentioned in your article. Your statement that "In 1948 liquidation took place; plates were sent to Security Bank Note Co. in Philadelphia" interested me most of all for I have a stock certificate printed by Security-Columbian Bank Note Co. and issued in 1972 which bears a vignette copyrighted by Hamilton. I guessed that Security-Columbian had obtained the plates but didn't know when. Arlie Slabaugh Ed. Note. The discrepancy in the founding date could differ as does the incorporation date. The letterhead for the HBNEP states that 1884 was the date of incorporation, the papers of which were actually finalized in 1885. The letterheads in both instances were probably prepared prema- turely, toward the end of the year. ■ Paper Money Exhibit Winners at ANA U.S. Paper Money: first place, Dr. Glenn E.

Thus, he and older brother William A., were the partners that joined with Mead on July 1, 1863 to become a new tri-party operation. The "Agent" who signed the Torrey-Mead note, W.A. Wes- cott, appears to be of no special significance. He may have been merely a clerk in the store, or just possibly an employee of the Raritan & Delaware Bay Railroad, which was owned by the Torrey family at the time. Until and unless additional specimens of Torrey and Mead notes show up, a listing of the series, if there be such, will not be possible. Anyone with knowledge of those items can assist in that determination by making such evidence known. Mean- while, the present 25 cent note will be considered unique.

It seems that everyone asks that question sooner or later. For us, it was simply a matter of natural pro- gression. We all started as collec- tors, diligently searching for the "right" paper money for our collec- tion. The quality, rarity, aesthetic ap- peal and value of our paper money is as important now as it was then. Today, we utilize our experience to make intelligent decisions in inven- tory acquisition. We take the time to appreciate and understand the cur- rency market and to pass this infor- mation on to our valued clients. THESE ARE SOME OF THE REA- SONS WHY COLLECTORS LIKE US AND WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO DEAL WITH COLLECTORS, LIKE US. If you are a serious collector, please write or call us today for a copy of our justly renowned listing of U.S. paper money. Allen Mincho "u.S.
