Help needed regarding Confederate Bonds Cr 147/ B-357a OR Cr149/ B-360

I am in Australia researching Confederate printing/ imagery. I need a hi-resolution scan of the Confederate sergeant before the tent used on these two bonds. I have scoured public collections and haven't been able to locate examples there. Any sources or leads would be very much welcomed.

Where to post Census Results w/photos & how do I setup a Blog??

I recently reactivated my SPMC membership after letting it expire about 20 years ago, as I wanted to publish my Census Results online, and share it with other Currency Collectors..

Stamped signatures on National Bank Notes

Hi all.  I'm putting together a display concerning the different types of signatures found on 1902 series NBN.  Has anyone seen the type of rubber stamp device used for this?  I've just started my search for one as I feel it would be a great addition to my display.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks, Tom Tullis

'Buried' Currency found in Methuen, MA in 2005

   Back in 2005, in Methuen MA, three roofers claimed to have found a hoard of old currency when they were digging in their yard. The story made national headlines, and they were guests on several morning TV shows. Their story unraveled when someone tipped off authorities that they found the money in the rafters of a barn they were hired to work on. They, of course, wanted to keep the money, and the land owner, an older woman, said it was hers.

Print errors on $1

I found a $1 1988 A that has 4 print errors on the note. 1. the plate position is missing. 2. the sheet number just has a 3. 3. no plate number on thr reverse. 4. A number 2 beside the 'T" at the end of In God We trust.

Where should I look for information on what happened and valuation? I am sending it to PCSG for certification. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Old BNR issues

 I have a bunch of Bank Note Reporters from maybe 1980 to 2010 in Pasadena CA. Recycle or does anyone want them for free?  I was going to scan them but the odd old page size and lethargy prevented me.
