Emergency Currency of the Civil War Period
by M. M. Burgett
While most coin and currency collectors are familiar with
the encased postage stamps and fractional currency which
were used to replace the vanished small coins of the early
1860's, and to a lesser degree with the privately produced
envelopes used to protect the U. S. postage stamps utilized
as currency, there seems to be little awareness of, and no
interest in the cardboard currency tickets provided by cer-
tain merchants, which are believed to have been used to
fill the need for small change in the very early days of the
war. Occasionally mention of these tickets can be found in
early auction catalogues, but they seem never to have been
plentiful. The writer has found only seven varieties of
these tickets in thirty years of collection, so this would
seem to indicate a definite rarity. Probably few were issued
and, as a matter of course, only a fraction could have sur-
vived. Those tickets seen by the writer have been, with one
exception, oblong in shape and printed on one side only.
A similar series, issued by army sutlers, has been listed and
described by James J. Curto, but apparently no listing has
ever been made of the pieces issued by civilian storekeepers.
The following descriptive list covers all such items owned
by the writer; naturally there is no way of knowing how
many others are tucked away in collections, dealers' stocks,
or in the traditional "attics" in which fabulous treasures
are popularly supposed to be secreted:
1. Briggs House—"Good for ten cents, when presented in
sums of not less than one dollar." Yellow cardboard,
oblong, 1 7/8"x 1 1/8".
2. G. 0. Chipman—"Good for two cents. I will redeem in
P. 0. currency when presented." Green, round,
scalloped, 1 1/8".
3. Grosvenor and Horn, No. 387 Bowery—"Good for one
cent." Yellow, oblong, 1 15/16"x 1 1/16".
4. Reimund Kroenig, grocery and provision store, corner
of Sigel and Sedgwick Sts.—"Good for one cent in trade,
or redeemable in sums of five cents and upwards."
Green, oblong, 1 3/4"x 1 1/4".
5. Latz and Holzmann—"Good for one cent." Yellow,
oblong, 1 3/4"x 1 1/4".
6. Mrs. Mebbetts' News Depot, 120 First Ave. near
7th St.—"Good for one cent." Yellow, oblong,
1 15/16"x 1 1/16".
7. Decatur Market—"Good for one cent at G. W. Odells,
cor. 7th St. and 1st Ave." Cream, oblong,
1 15/16"xl 1/16".
Tickets numbered 1, 2, 4, and 5 show signs of considerable
circulation, while the remainder arc fresh and new. The
Chipman piece, No. 2, is particularly interesting as it
apparently was issued at the same time the first issue of
official shin-plasters (postage currency) made its appear-
ance. Although no place of issue is designated on any of
these pieces, it is likely that they originated in the larger
cities, as did the printed envelopes which were designed to
contain postage stamps passed from hand to hand as a
Pursuing these odd bits of cardboard will probably appeal
to only a few individuals, as the great majority of Ameri-
can collectors care only for rolls of modern coins and so-
called "mint errors" of which millions are available, but to
anyone who may be attracted by them, the writer wishes
to say "good hunting."
Announcement of Writing Awards
by G. Wait
With the objective of enlarging and improving the content
of Paper Money and encouraging membership participation
in it, B. M. Douglas of our Board of Governors is generous-
ly offering two awards.
These will consist of a $10 gold piece to be given to the
writer of the best article and a $2 1/2 gold piece for the
second best article published in our magazine prior to the
Summer 1964 issue. Winners must be members of the
Society. While more than one entry may be submitted, no
one may win more than one award. The winning articles
will be chosen by a committee of officers or Governors of
the Society appointed by the President. Officers of the
Society, including Governors, are ineligible for awards.
Our membership of approximately 500 includes a great
many authorities in the field of paper money. Numbered
among them are some well-known writers on numismatics.
It is hoped they will submit articles—but others who have
not tried their hand at writing also might find it a source
of pleasure and satisfaction. If you have a specialty and
have studied your field you are definitely qualified to
write an authoritative article. Stories of paper money col-
lecting experience, if unusual and of general interest,
should also be in order.
Probably due to the appeal of a wider circulation, some of
our members in the past year have submitted articles for
publication in the numismatic papers rather than in our
own magazine. It should be pointed out that this practice
involves some other considerations—(1) it is probable that
a large percentage of subscribers do not read articles on
paper money, (2) the paper is not of a quality which can
do justice to the article, and especially illustrations, (3) a
glossy finish magazine is more likely to be preserved. Think
of the space required to store even one year's issue of a
large weekly or semi-monthly paper!
We are still a comparatively small organization. We want
to continue to grow. Paper money collecting is on the
upswing and if we take an enthusiastic interest in our
Society it will keep pace with the growth of the hobby.
Help us to expand our magazine, our chief asset in attract-
ing new members.
It is hoped that the Douglas awards will provide the added
incentive to give us a larger, attractive, informative maga-
- of which we will all be proud.

Changes of Address
When paying their 1963 dues, several members disclosed
that they did not receive one or more of the magazines
because they had moved. Present Postal Regulations
specify that only first-class mail may be forwarded unless
special arrangements are made with the local postmaster.
If you have a change of address, it is important to do two
(a) Immediately notify the Secretary of your change
(b) Arrange with your local postmaster to forward
all magazines as well as first-class mail. This will
involve payment of additional postage.
Fractional Paper Money
Private Issues of the Civil War Period
by Ernest S. Craighead
Hostilities between the Northern and Southern states
began in April, 1861. The War had continued but a few
months until gold (silver and copper coins began to
disappear from circulation. This was caused by a num-
ber of factors, principally the depreciation of paper money.
A premium on coins was created by their bullion content,
resulting in their export to foreign countries, principally
Canada, for the sake of an exchange profit. Much hoarding
also resulted from the old axiom that "bad money drives
out good money." An illustration of the condition of affairs
may be cited in the case of a house in New York which
had so many copper cents stored in one of its rooms that
the floor collapsed.
It has been estimated that at least twenty-five million
dollars of metallic coins disappeared from circulation and
the country found itself, in the midst of a war boom,
virtually without a low denominational medium of ex-
2hange. The inconvenience caused by this sudden disap-
pearance can hardly be imagined at the present time. An
early development was the refusal of retail establishments
to give change. This condition of public inconvenience and
business loss could not continue. The people had to find
substitutes for coins and find them they did, in every
(In this article I am quoting liberally from two books
on the subject and pause to give due credit to "Fractional
Money" by Neil Carothers, published in New York in
1930, which devotes Chapter XII to the Private Issues of
Fractional Paper Money of the Civil War Period, and to
"United States Paper Money" by George H. Blake, pub-
lished in New York in 1908.)
Businessmen issued promissory notes on small sizes of
paper for amounts varying from 1 cent up. Metal tokens in
brass, copper and various alloys were also issued by mer-
chants and manufacturers in the form of advertisements,
or bearing patriotic and other mottoes, and these readily
passed for cents. Street car tickets, milk tickets, and any-
thing having an apparent value, were pressed into service
for making change.
In most of the states fractional notes were illegal. In
some cases the laws were ambiguous, not specifying the
minimum denominations permissible. There was no
method of controlling the circulation in one state of notes
issued in another state. Pennsylvania had repealed her
small note law in April, 1861, and fractional notes were
widely issued in that state. Many were issued in New
Jersey, New York and Massachusetts—in fact throughout
the more thickly populated Northern states with two
notable exceptions, Michigan and Rhode Island—but there
is evidence that the State of Rhode Island at one time
considered a fractional issue.
Most issues were payable in goods or larger units of
money "at my store," or like a check, payable at a bank.
There were very few issues by the banks themselves,
signed by the cashier or president, making them really
fractional "bank notes." In some localities $1 and $2 bank
notes were cut into fractional parts.
Following the precent of earlier periods of financial
crisis, many municipalities undertook to issue fractional
notes. The best-known issues are those of Newark, Jersey
City, Albany, Troy and Wilmington. Apparently, the very
largest cities, such as New York and Philadelphia, did not
issue notes at this time. The smaller cities and towns were
not deterred by fear of legal complications and willingly
met the emergency with notes, mostly in denominations
varying from five to fifty cents.
In some states, Pennsylvania especially, other govern-
mental units such as counties and tax districts undertook
to supply fractional currency. It would appear from an
inspection of notes now held in collections that some of
these local governments, as well as many private enter-
prises, entered into an arrangement with local banks to
deceive the public. Notes were printed in such a form that
they gave every appearance of being fractional bank notes,
but the wording was such that they were legally checks
on the banks. Such notes were technically exempt from
attack either as bank notes or as local government notes,
although clearly intended to serve as money.
Transportation companies, hotels, saloons and retail
stores that could not carry on business without change
proceeded to manufacture their own currency. A vast
quantity of notes, tickets and due bills poured into circula-

tion. They bore the promise of the issuer, explicit or
implied, to redeem them in money or goods. Customers
offering bank notes in payment at a store received in
change a handful of the proprietor's own notes or due bills.
They had to accept these paper promises or forego their
purchases. Patrons of saloons and barbershops had to ac-
cept such items as change and pass them on as best they
could. Notes of hotels were especially common. The derisive
term "shinplaster," whose origin dates back at least to the
War of 1812, was applied to the whole mass (or mess) of
city, bank and private issues.
The legal status of these shinplaster notes was dubious
and confused. In many states they were clearly illegal. In
some states such as Pennsylvania, the statute was not clear.
Private notes were prohibited in New York and when the
shinplasters first appeared the newspapers emphatically
pointed out this fact. The Herald quoted the state law in
full and three days later commented as follows:
"At least one hundred retailers in various lines of
business in this city have issued shinplasters, very
many of which are in direct contravention of the law."
The United States postage currency law of July 17,
1862 contained a provision making it criminal for any
person, company or banking association to issue notes of a
denomination less than one dollar. This sweeping prohi-
bition, which outlawed all fractional notes except those
issued by cities, had little effect. Business could not go on
without small change and the law was ignored.
The emergency currencies created or sanctioned by the
Federal Government in the summer of 1862 were quite
inadequate to meet the needs for small change, and for
the remainder of 1862 and for the first months of 1863 the
country depended chiefly on a conglomerate mass of torn
notes, fractional bank notes, municipal notes and shin-
plasters of private issuers.
Any attempt to estimate the volume of shinplaster
issues would be speculative. If it is considered that the
vanished silver amounted to more than $25,000,000 and
that the shinplasters probably represented much more than
half of all the emergency currencies, it seems fair to
issume that the issues reached a sum greater than $15,-
000,000. It is doubtful whether half of this total returned
to the original issuers for redemption. The amount lost,
destroyed in use, or held as souvenirs must have exceeded
This figure represents only a small part of the social
and financial losses entailed by the complete collapse of
the small denominational medium of exchange in 1862.
The losses from destruction of notes and irredeemable
issues were minor matters when contrasted with the de-
moralization of retail trade and the general annoyance
and disturbance the country had to endure.
During the acute shortage of change in 1862 the
Postage Stamp, very naturally, quickly claimed recognition
as a circulating medium, but the adhesive back was a
serious impediment. The New York Central Railroad
utilized stamps by enclosing various amounts in small
envelopes, which were issued as change. Stamps were also
mounted in small brass circles with mica over the face and
advertisements stamped on the back. Such issues of
"Enclosed Postage" will be found listed and illustrated in
Friedberg's "Paper Money of the United States."
To General F. E. Spinner, the Treasurer of the United
States, is due the credit for first pasting upon slips of
paper, in definite amounts, the United States Postage
Stamps in the semblance of money. The attention of the
Post Office Department having been called to this arrange-
ment of stamps, they readily agreed to redeem them with
new stamps when worn or mutilated. The convenience
and definite value of the pasted stamps, as arranged by
General Spinner, were so readily apparent that the matter
was at once taken up by Congress, and a regular issue of
postal currency was authorized under the July 1862 Act.
This "Postal Currency" had the semblance of postage
stamps printed on it, in the same plan as General Spin-
ner's original arrangement. At the time of authorizing the
Postal Currency. Congress also prohibited the issuing of
fractional currency and tokens by individuals. The Postal
Currency was soon succeeded under Act of March 3, 1863
by the "Fractional Currency" which remained in use after
the financial crisis was over, for a total span of 14 years,
after which it was redeemed. No similar event has occurred
in the history of paper money to that which was marked
by the beginning and end of Fractional Currency.
This subject of Fractional Currency as issued by the
Federal Government is a story in itself and merits a
separate article. A handsome collection of Federal Postage
and Fractional Currency can still be formed for not too
great an outlay.
It should be emphasized that for over eighty years
preceding the Civil War, when there was a need for them,
fractional notes were issued by banks, local governmental
units, churches and private firms or individuals. They were
not new or novel in 1862.
The collecting of private fractional currency is not a
common hobby. Rarely do collectors specialize in these
small scrip notes. Generally they are associated with other
obsolete notes and are occasionally advertised under the
misleading heading of "Broken Bank Notes." Except in
instances where large "remainder" lots have been found,
they are rarer than their usual retail price indicates. The
price is comparatively low because the demand is low, not
because there is a large supply. These notes were accepted
only in immediate areas in which issued, where the signer
was known, hence the quantities were limited and many
were redeemed. The collector can choose from notes issued
by cities, counties, banks and every conceivable class of
business concern. He will find quite a number of a few
municipal issues, but of many private scrip notes he will
never find a duplicate. There never could be a complete
listing. Historically, these scrip notes are most important,
and the many varieties and denominations are an interest-
The Confederate side of the Civil War cannot be
ignored in a discussion of this type. In addition to two
issues of regular CSA fifty-cent notes, numerous fractional
notes were issued by the Southern State governments,
counties, municipalities and private firms. Like the U. S.
Fractional Currency they deserve a story of their own.

Current Currency, by G. W. Killian
The paper dollars that you spend so casually, or
reluctantly, are fascinating and worthy of interest to the
collector. Although I have collected these dollars for
several years it is only recently that I have become in-
terested in studying them and, I am sure, there is still a
great deal I must learn. Since I know of no article providing
much information relating to these notes, I felt that a
compilation of what I have learned or guessed might be of
interest to fellow collectors. I also hope that other collec-
tors will be inspired to provide additional information
and/or let me know where my guesses are inaccurate.
Even the non coin collecting public is used to dates
on coins and are aware that the date on a coin corresponds
to the year the coin was minted. Therefore, if they examine
a one dollar bill and see "series of 1957" on it they usually
assume that the dollar was printed in 1957. And because
some dollars do not have the motto, IN GOD WE TRUST,
on the reverse there is a rumor going the rounds that
either a communist or an atheist got into the Bureau of
Printing and Engraving in Washington, D. C., where all
the bills are printed, and removed the motto from some of
the plates. Neither of these things is true.
The year shown on a bill is not the year of printing
but rather the year that a bill of that design was first
released. Thus on the current small-size dollars, it is only
possible to find the years 1928, 1934, 1935, and 1957. There
are no others! The differences in design are usually rather
minor. The most obvious change was the addition of the
Great Seal of the United States on the reverse in 1935 and
the corresponding reduction of the word ONE. The 1957
change was the additions of the motto IN GOD WE
TRUST. Thus the rumor is false, as most rumors are,
(remember the one about the flag on the Jefferson nickel?)
It is the new bills that have the motto while the older ones
do not. The motto has not been removed by a subversive.
Another item of interest is the letter following the
series year. The first bills of a new design have no letter
after the series year and later 'A', 'B', 'C', etc is added each
time one of the signatures is changed. Each bill is signed
at the lower left by the Treasurer of the United States, and
at the lower right by the Secretary of the Treasury. Thus
the later the letter, after the series year, the more current
the bill. The dollar bills currently being produced are
designated series of 1957 B and bear the signatures of
Kathryn E. Granaham and C. Douglas Dillon.
We have all learned that rules are made only to be
broken. Thus returning to the rule that says the year is
changed when the design is changed there is a current
exception. As stated, the 1957 dollar was the first bill to
include the motto, IN GOD WE TRUST, an it bore the
signatures of Ivy Baker Priest and Robert B. Anderson.
Just before the 1957 bill was introduced, the 1935 F bill
was current and it, too, bore the signatures of Priest and
Anderson. When Kennedy was elected President of the
U. S., Priest and Anderson left office and Smith and Dillon
were installed; their signature gave us the 1957 A series.
However, their signatures were also used on bills of the
1935 series, so that we also have a 1935 G bill which bears
the Smith-Dillon signatures; the former with the motto
and the latter without. Then the 1935 G reverse plates
were altered to add the motto, so there are now two major
types of the 1935 G series, one with, and one without the
motto. Thus the rule is broken. If the change that created
the series of 1957 was the addition of the motto, why were
the 1935 G bills made with a motto without changing the
series year? The real distinction between the 1935 and the
1957 series is more than the change of design; it was a
major change in printing techniques. The 1957 series bills
are printed on larger sheets by a high-speed process.
However, the older presses were used concurrently to print
the 1935 G series. If they continue to use the old presses,
it is possible that we will see a 1935 H series bill, which
will bear the same signatures as the 1957 B; namely,
Granaham-Dillon. I have not seen any 1935 H bills and
would appreciate being advised if anyone does.
The next item of interest on the dollar is the serial
number. So far as I can determine, the serial number of
the first dollar of the 1957 series bore the number
A00000001A. The bills were numbered consecutively until
number A99999999A was produced. (This is one bill short
of one hundred million notes). As will be seen an extra
note is added to each group so that each group will con-
tain one hundred million notes. Then to continue the first
letter was changed to B and the notes were numbered from
B00000001A to B99999999A. The process repeated using
C . . . A; D . . A, E . . . A, etc to Z . . . A, except that the
letter '0' was omitted. If the series is continued, the next
bill would be A . . . B, then B . . . B, C . . . B etc. Thus
the process could continue through the alphabet many
times the last letter combination I have seen on the 1957
series bills is B . . . B; therefore, it is possible that approxi-
mately 27 groups of one hundred million notes were made.
(Only 27 groups because the letter '0' was omitted). Thus
2,700,000,000 of the 1957 one dollar bills may have been
When Kennedy was elected and the 1957 A series with
the Smith-Dillon signatures replaced the 1957 dollar with
the Priest-Anderson signatures, the serial number designa-
tion started over at A ... A and advanced through Q ... A.
Thus only 16 groups of the 1957 A notes were made.
The production of the 1957 B bills broke the pattern,
or perhaps it might be said that with the production of
these bills the old pattern was resumed. The 1957 B bills
did not begin over at A ... A, but started right after the
1957 A bills with high numbers in the QQ . .. A series. That
is the 1957 B serial numbers continued where the 1957 A's
left off in the Q ... A series. This was done before as the
1935 F and the 1935 G notes both exist in the B J serial
On the subject of serial numbers, you may wonder
why you never see a dollar with a low serial number since
they start through the series from number 1 so often. It is
a simple matter of probability. Only one note in ten
thousand starts with four zeros.
So far as I can determine, the serial numbers on the
1935 series bills, including all signature combinations,
never repeated. Accordingly, with the 1935 series bills, they
have produced sufficient groups of one hundred million
each to work through the alphabet nine times and the
newest 1935 G bill I have seen is letter D on the 10th time

around; specifically D . J. Thus nearly 30 billion of the
bills of the 1935 series have been produced. Naturally only
a small portion of these are in circulation at any one time.
Incidentally the change in the 1935 G, to add the motto,
occurred in the D J series, so 1935 G notes can be
obtained in the D J series both with and without the
Now speaking of the 1935 series notes and the serial
numbers on them, you should know that the 1935 A series
notes were printed with both Yellow and Brown seals as
well as the familiar Blue. The Yellow and Brown seal
notes were special notes used by our soldiers overseas
during World War II, and by the citizens of Hawaii,
respectively. So far as I can determine, the serial numbers
of the Yellow and Brown seal notes were included in the
regular series of numbers for the Blue seals. Therefore, it
should not be possible to find the same serial number,
including letters, on two notes even though the notes have
different colored seals. The serial numbers on the Brown
seal notes are also in brown, while the numbers of the
Yellow seal notes are in the familiar blue. The Brown seal
notes also have HAWAII overprinted on the back in letters
5/8 of an inch high. It is also interesting to note that the
Bureau experimented with different paper or paper finish,
and identified the test notes with either a red 'R' or `S'
towards the lower right corner on the obverse of the notes.
These experimental notes were also series of 1935 A. The
red letters are quite prominent, about 3/16 of an inch high.
Yellow and Brown seal notes may occasionally be found in
circulation but I have not seen an 'R' or 'S' note in 15
Earlier it was mentioned that the letter following the
series year is changed when the signatures are changed.
This, too, is a rule made to be broken. The first 1935 bill
bore the signatures of W. A. Julian and Henry Morgen-
thau, Jr., and the designation "Series of 1935" was printed
higher and further to the right than is now conventional.
When the location was changed to the present location,
the series was changed to 1935 A, but still of course, with
the Julian-Morgenthau signatures.
But, we must not assume the rule that a change on the
bill warrants a new letter after the series year. Remember
the 1935 G exists both with and without the motto. Also
during the printing of the 1935 D note, the distance from
the bottom of the words ONE DOLLAR on the bottom
of the reverse to the green margin was reduced, and a
corresponding reduction was made above the words THE
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, so that the net result
was to reduce the height of the design by approximately
one millimeter. I would appreciate more information con-
cerning this change.
There is one unique dollar of particular interest. It
is a bill that is series of 1928, but with a red seal instead
of the conventional Blue. Blue, incidentally, is indicative
of Silver Certificates; Green of Federal Reserve Notes; and
Red of United States Notes. The special Yellow and Brown
seals mentioned above were Silver Certificates. Thus the
red seal, one dollar note is a United States Note and is
the only one dollar U. S. Note ever made. All Two dollar
bills are U. S. Notes, and five dollar bills come in all
three varieties; while ten dollar bills are never U. S. notes.
Please remember that these comments apply only to the
bills of the present size, not to the old large notes. Also
you should know that Brown seals were quite common at
one time and do not always mean Silver Certificates nor
Hawaii notes. The Brown seals were also used on money
known as National Currency. A few of the $5 and higher
denomination bills of this series may still be found in
Another interesting distinguishing characteristic to
collectors are what are commonly referred to as star notes.
The star notes will include a star either at the front or end
of the serial number in place of the letter normally found
there. On Silver Certificates (Blue seals), and U. S. Notes
(Red seals), the star will be found in place of the first
letter. On Federal Reserve notes (Green seals), the star
will be found in place of the last letter. (The first letter
of the Federal Reserve Notes corresponds to the letter of
the issuing district). The star notes are used by the
Bureau to help maintain production control and accurate
counts. As the bills are produced and numbered, it is
inevitable that some of the bills will be damaged so badly
that it is not considered desirable to allow them to get
into circulation. However, removal and destruction of
such defective bills creates a real inventory problem.
Naturally the Bureau wants to be able to determine the
quantity of finished bills in a stack by simply examining
the first and last serial numbers of the group. If an
indeterminate quantity of defective bills had been re-
moved such a procedure would not be practical. Accord-
ingly every time a defective bill is removed, it is replaced
with a star note. Of course the Bureau might have re-
printed the damaged bill, but resetting the machines to
get the right number would be a slow and expensive
process. The star in the serial number warns all Bureau
personnel that a count can not be obtained from that po-
sition using that star number. On the average two or
three star notes will be found in each new pack of 100
bills. However, I have seen three or four dozen per pack,
and even an occasional group of one hundred consecutive
star notes; and I have seen several consecutive groups of
hundreds with no star notes in any of them. The star notes
are in no way defective bills themselves and are usually
considered desirable and premium collector items. Inci-
dentally the star notes are, of course, serially numbered
and on the first series of numbers end with an A. The
next series ends with B, etc. In the 1957 series I have seen
star notes ending with A, B, and C. They started the
1957 A star notes over, so that 1957 A star notes also end
with A. I have not seen a 1957 A star note with the serial
number ending with anything but A. The 1957 B star
notes are numbered right after the 1957 A star notes and
thus are in the 90 million series and now the 1957 B star
notes are in the * B series. The star notes in the 1935
series advanced through the alphabet and current 1935 G
star notes end with G. Can anyone report a 1957 *
or a 1957 A * B note, or any other not accounted
It was pointed out that the numbering system permits
only 99,999,999 notes per letter combination. To simplify
counting a star note is added after every 99,999,999th note.
The star note used is indistinguishable from any other

CURRENT CURRENCY CON'D FROM PAGE 1 ci
Any one examining a one dollar bill with care may
wonder about various little numbers appearing in various
locations. There arc three such numbers; 2 on the front,
and 1 on the rear. On the obverse of a 1957 series note,
for example, one number will be found towards the upper
left, while the other is at the lower right. Each of these
numbers is preceeded by a letter; always the same letter on
a given bill. The third number is on the reverse in the
lower right part of the open area, that is below the 'E'
The upper left number and letter are indicative of the
particular location of that bill on the large uncut sheet
having 32 bills total. The 1935 series bills are printed in
smaller sheets having only 18 bills per sheet, and there-
fore, a letter alone suffices to indicate location.
The other two numbers, that is, the ones towards the
lower right on front and back are similar in significance.
These numbers are quite similar to plate numbers on
stamps. That is they identify the plate from which any
particular bill was printed. Thus if a defect is found after
a bill is printed, it is a simple matter to determine and
locate the defective plate. The plate numbers start with
one for each new design. Thus plate number one can be
found on the 1928 bills, the 1934, the 1935, and the 1957
series. Current plate numbers on the obverse of the 1935 G
bills are over 8000. The plate numbers for the 1957 B bills
start at about 730. However, it should not be assumed that
there could be no 1957 B with a front plate number lower
than 730, or a 1957 A bill with a front plate number great-
er than 730. The notes are first printed without seals,
signatures, and serial numbers and later in another print-
ing run this information is added. Therefore, as the series
changes from 1957 A to 1957 B, it would be quite possible
to get a cross over on front (or rear) plate numbers. In-
deed if some old stock from plate number one was found,
it would be possible to add the 1957 B designation and

signatures to them. However, such a possibility is quite
remote. I have seen 1957 A bills with a front plate number
of 741 and 1957 B bills with a front plate number of 722.
Generally collectors consider a bill printed from plate
number one to be a desirable item. Of course a star note
with a front and rear plate number of one would be an
even more desirable item. For some reason that I am not
aware of the front plates are replaced more frequently than
rear plates. A new 1957 B bill has a front plate number of
745 and a rear plate number of 406. I would appreciate an
explanation of this phenomenon.
Most collectors are interested in obtaining signature
variations and then try to duplicate the collection in star
notes. Some collectors seek a sample of each possible letter
combination in each signature variation, and possibly,
some collectors seek to get a note from each plate number.
Occasionally, too, a collector will reconstruct a sheet by
obtaining a note from each location. Also collectors look
for cute serial numbers, for example, low numbers or
repetitive or successive digits, etc. Naturally too, collec-
tors are concerned with condition and prefer crisp uncir-
culated well centered notes.
I hope that these notes may have added to your
knowledge and possibly whetted your interest in forming
a collection of current-size dollar bills. Unfortunately I
suspect some of my beliefs may be erroneous and therefore
I'd welcome corrections, and I would also appreciate
answers to the various questions I raised throughout this
essay. And if the editors permit it, I'll be glad to furnish
another article providing the members of the society with
any additional information I gather and/or that members
send me. For the present I prefer to consider only the
current-size bills and the low denominations, i.e., $10 and
lower. Please let me hear from you.
For convenience there is included a table indicating
the 24 major varieties of the current-size dollar bills.
