Scrip Advertising Checks and Misc Paper
We are pleased to have a very nice, well preserved copy of "United States Paper Money Old Series 1861-1923" by Dr Frank Alvin Limpert. In the years before the Friedberg book, this was the bible! It is 8 1/2 X 11, soft cover and #604 of an issue of 2500. A must have for any currency library.
Check drawn on the Covington NB of Covington, VA, by Rinehart & Painter, Dry Goods and Notions. Well engraved bust of "GEN L R.E. Lee at left. Per Hugh Shull, very rare to find Gen Lee image on a check. Back has 4 stamped endorsements on back. A really neat item that belongs in any CSA collection!
Macerated Currency bust of Lincoln mounted on 3 1/4" X 6 1/4" black card. Explanation printed on card below bust. Very neat and interesting. "Estimated value in old bills of $1,000.00. Washington, D.C."
A very interesting "National Currency Souvenir" from Washington, DC made of macerated currency redeemed by the Treasury. It is round, 4" across, with the Capitol Building at center, large flag above with bunting. One of many types created over the years. Well done and great condition.
