Based on a research paper by CRAIG J. TURNER written in 1975 and published first in The SPA Journal. The author was a member of the staff of the Smithsonian Institution and a specialist in the bank note company production of classic U. S. stamps and the men who engraved them. ************* On March 3, 1863, Congress abolished the one-cent post office carrier's fee and established a postage rate of two cents for drop (local) letters. It further established the 2nd and 3rd class postage rates at two cents for each four ounces, or fraction thereof, and the rate for circulars, up to three in number, at two cents. The Act also required that these fees be paid by affixing postage stamps to the individual envelope or wrapper. With these rate changes, it soon became apparent to the Post Office Department that the issuance of a two- cent stamp should be undertaken immediately. Consequently, on April 8, 1863, the following letter was sent to the National Banknote Company, holder of the then-current postage stamp contract: Post Office Department Finance Office Washington, April 8, 1863 Sir: Under the New Postage Law, stamps of the denomination of two cents will be required for the payment of postage on local letters on and after 1st July next. I have therefore to request that you will at your earliest convenience, furnish this office with a design for a postage stamp of that denomination which stamp shall be so different in all respects from those now in use, as to be readily distinguishable from them without reference to color. I am, respectfully, etc. A. N. ZEVELY Third Asst., P.M. General Due to the short lead time involved (April 8 to July 1), James MacDonough, Secretary and stamp designer of the National Banknote Company, decided to use one of his "stock" engravings as the central design of this new two-cent postage stamp. As this relatively low value stamp was to be used to carry "wastepaper basket" material such as circulars, price quotations, newspapers and the like, riot too much effort would be / // //// ///1 13 NIG 0 WI IE Page 204 expended upon the design, so from the stock dies available, MacDonough chose a vignette engraving of Andrew Jackson. William D. Nichols was the man chosen to engrave the frame and lettering for this stamp. He had been working as an engraver in New York City since 1840. By 1848, he had become well enough known and sufficiently popular to have had his works exhibited at the National Academy of Design. Prior to joining the National Banknote Company, he had been an engraver for Danforth, Wright & Company. He left Danforth in 1859 to become one of the founders and trustees of the newly formed National when he subscribed to 136 shares of their stock. The New York City Directory lists him as an artist from 1865 to 1869, and then lists him as a printer at 1 Wall Street in 1874. In 1878, he still resided in New York but by then he owned 1,600 shares in the National Banknote Company. Nichols has been credited with engraving the lettering on all the 1861- 1866 stamps for National except the one-cent blue Franklin. Whole No. 101 engraving and worked for both the National and Continental Banknote Companies in New York and for the American in Philadelphia. Ourdan later entered the service of the United States Treasury Department in Washington, D. C., and in time became Chief of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. For the Bureau, he engraved the portrait of Salmon P. Chase for the one dollar Civil War era Legal Tender note. He died on May 10, 1881, in Washington, D. C. For years, students of United States classical stamps have searched for the model Ourdan used for the Andrew Jackson vignette. Many students agree that it was John Wood Dodge's miniature painting of the President which had been painted many years earlier. Dodge had gone to Jackson's home, The Hermitage, at Nashville, Tennessee in 1842, and painted, on ivory, in miniature, a three-quarter length rendition of Jackson in a seated position. In his left hand, Jackson held his glass case and his right arm rested on a table which also holds a leather-bound book. Behind Jackson's right shoulder, Dodge had painted "Old Hickory's" sword and scabbard. The artist had surmounted his painting with an elaborate Urn and the Capitol of the United Fig. 2 - 1861 Confederate States of America $1,000 banknote. Designer: National Banknote Company, Vignette engraved by Joseph Prosper Ourdan. The stock engraving of Andrew Jackson chosen by James MacDonough for the new two-cent stamp vignette had originally been used by the National Banknote Company as part of a Confederate States $1,000 banknote. This one thousand dollar bill had been ordered from National in 1861, and Joseph Prosper Ourdan, National's portrait and pictorial engraver, had been assigned the job of engraving the vignette of Jackson to be used as the lower right portion. Joseph Prosper Ourdan, portrait and pictorial engraver, was the son ofJoseph James Prosper Ourdan, a letter engraver. The son served his apprenticeship as an engraver with William L. Ormsby of New York. He engraved some good line portraits and illustrative work for book publishers under his own name while still quite young. He soon became interested in banknote States, while he had painted The Hermitage at the bottom. Fortified with this word picture of Dodge's miniature, your author began a search for the original ivory painting. Contact was made with the Curator of The Hermitage, The Boston Antiquarian Society, The National Collection of Fine Arts and The National Portrait Gallery in an effort to locate the Dodge miniature. Needless to say, the search was fruitless. Further, Mrs. Ada Whisenhunt, Curator of The Hermitage, told your author that historians and writers have been searching for Dodge's miniature for years, but to date, no one has found it. Mrs. Whisenhunt went on to say, "In my judgement, the Dodge miniature must have been the model for the 1863 United States stamp which bears the likeness of Andrew Jackson. Certainly, we have no engravings here (at The Hermitage) which Paper Money Fig. 3 - A version of the Dodge miniature engraved by W. J. Edwards. faintly resemble this stamp. In fact, we have no prints which are not listed in the material which you sent." Your author did find, however, an engraving of Dodge's painting in The National Collection of Fine Arts of the Smithsonian Institution done by Mosely Isaac Danforth in 1843 — just one year after Dodge painted his ivory miniature. Upon finding this engraving, your author also discovered there were more than 30 other engravings of Andrew Jackson done by many of the great engravers of the nineteenth century. It was learned that Asher Brown Durand, Peter Maverick, James Barton Longacre, Gideon Fairman, Francis Kearny, and J. R. E. Prud'homme all engraved Jackson at one time or another. To assist collectors and exhibitors in their search for collateral material for stamp and paper money collections, and to acquaint readers with the type material available, a listing of these Jackson engravings follows: Stipple Oval.

This overwhelming usage of Jackson vignettes on state bank notes by bankers from all parts of the country appears to be unusual until it is pointed out that Andrew Jackson was directly responsible for the very Paper Money existence of these State Banks. During his last year in office as President of the United States, Jackson successfully crushed the all-powerful Second Bank of the United States and sponsored the system of deposit in state banks. Many of the state bank presidents subsequently honored their hero by choosing his picture to be placed on their currency issues. The reader will quickly note that there are slight differences in many of the Jackson vignettes. Although your author has ascribed certain vignettes to certain engravers, there is no positive way of identifying which of the engravers accomplished which vignette unless certain dates are known or the engraver signed his work. When the engraver did not sign his work, then the "date" method of identification must be used. That is, knowing for certain which engraver worked for which banknote company during a specific time period. Even with this dating information it is not always possible, at this late date, to identify positively the engraver of each vignette illustrated in this article. These early engravings of Andrew Jackson were not always restricted to use on postage stamps and banknotes. They were also used on many other types of United States security paper. Fig. 13 illustrates an 1851 bounty land certificate which has Mosely Isaac Danforth's engraving of Andrew Jackson in its lower right corner. This certificate granted 80 acres of bounty land to Private James Meritt, a member of Captain Seberne's Company of Kentucky Volunteers. These certificates were printed in compliance with the September 28, 1850 Act of Congress entitled, "An Act Granting Bounty Land to Certain Officers and Soldiers Who have been Engaged in the Military Service of the United States." Fig. 13a an enlargement of the lower right corner of the certificate showing Jackson's vignette surrounded by muskets, cannon, flags and cannonballs. Page 211 Fig. 14 depicts the 1871 one-eig th barrel, 12 1/2-cent beer stamp with an engraving c. Jackson given the same "curl in the middle of the forehead" treatment that Charles Phillips gave Jackson in his 1815 engraving. It is difficult to name the engraver of this vignette as the National Banknote Company imprint shows clearly at the bottom of the stamp, but the center of the stamp reads, "Engraved and Printed at the Bureau of Engraving & Printing." If indeed the vignette was done at the National Banknote Company, any one of the following four engravers could have been responsible for it: Luigi (Lewis) Del Noce, portrait and picture engraver, who worked for National from 1860 through 1879; Christian Wilhelm Rost, vignette engraver who worked for National from 1868 to 1878; our old friend, Joseph Prosper Ourdan, portrait and pictorial engraver who worked for National from 1861 through 1873; or possibly William Edgar Marshall, painter and portrait engraver who started working for National in 1859 and was still with them in 1869 and possibly beyond. The next time this "curl on the forehead" engraving of Jackson appears on United States Government security paper is in 1872 when the Act of June 6, 1872 brings forth the first series of Tobacco Stamps. Fig. 15 shows the Bureau of Engraving & Printing's one ounce 1872 tobacco stamp with Jackson's vignette at one end of the stamp. Figures 16 and 17 show Jackson's vignette as used on the 1878 Exportation Stamps for Cigars and Tobacco or Snuff. These large sized Exportation Stamps were engraved and printed at the Bureau of Engraving & Printing. Although Jackson vignettes were used on many other postage stamps and items of security paper from 1878 to the present, the vignette we are most familiar with Fig. 13 - 1851 Bounty Land Certificate issued by the Department of the Interior. Designer: Danforth, Bald & Company. Engraver: Mosely Isaac Danforth. Page 212 Whole No. 101 Fig. 13a - Enlargement of Jackson vignette from the 1851 Bounty Land Certificate showing ornamented frame, flags, cannon, muskets and cannonballs. today is the small - size twenty - dollar note from the Bureau of Engraving & Printing, portrait by Thomas Sully, engraved by Alfred Sealey. Note the difference in today's style of presenting the vignette of Jackson. During the early years almost every vignette was surrounded with an ornamented frame, but today's artistic trend allows nothing more than an insignificant ribbon at the bottom and two narrow lines encircling the vignette. Andrew Jackson, politician, statesman, financier, and seventh President of the United States, is still very much in the minds and hearts of the American people. Over the years he has been honored many times by the government he helped shape and by the banking institutions he was primarily responsible for bringing into existence.

Read Money Mart Interest settv Wendell Wolka 1 Paper Money That curse of editors, column writers, and Presidents, the deadline, has left me with little to share with you this time out. The final reports covering the results of the Society's fiscal year which ended June 30, 1982 are not quite complete yet. While the ANA convention is still three weeks away at the time this is being written, you will not be reading this until well after the show's conclusion. I, therefore, thought that I would use this column to give you an illustrated tour of the 1982 International Paper Money Show in Memphis. I would like to thank fellow SPMC member ROY PETERSON for supplying all of these excellent pictures. While the economy had some effect on the show, it was still a good one for most collectors and dealers attending. 1. Registration 2. The Bourse witnessed steady activity. 3. The exhibits were particularly strong this year, both in terms of quantity and quality. The auction, conducted by Hickman and Oakes, was also of interest to many people attending the show. 4. Dean Oakes conducting auction lot viewing. 5. One of the auction sessions. Most of the hobby organizations held meetings in conjunction with the show. These meetings offered plenty of both educational and social opportunities. 6. IBNS meeting: President Neil Shafer is seated, watching Clyde Reedy expound. Secretary Milan Alusic is in the middle. Page 233 The SPMC Awards Breakfast on Saturday morning was well attended. Over 130 people heard the new ANA Museum Curator, Robert Hoge, speak on the ANA's new museum facilities as well as its collections. Due to the superior quality of the exhibits, not one, but two, Best of Show awards were presented. Both Steven Whitfield and Joseph Boling were declared the winners by the judges. Mr. Whitfield also won the Bank Note Reporter's award for having the most inspirational exhibit. 7. Vice - President Larry Adams introduces the morning's speaker as Wendell Wolka and Mike Crabb look on. 8. Robert Hoge, ANA Museum Curator, addresses those in attendance at the SPMC Breakfast. 9. Steve Whitfield (center) and Joe Boling (right) accept SPMC's Memorial Best of Show Award. 10. Nancy Wilson accepts the final door prize at the conclusion of the breakfast. The SPMC table outside the bourse was also a beehive of activity with both souvenir card and book sales a uite brisk. In fact, for the first time ever, every book which we had at the show was sold. Souvenir card sales, in terms of the number of cards sold, were down a little from last year. However, mail sales were and are particularly good. I expect that we will sell at least as many cards as last year. 11. SPMC Treasurer Roger H. Durand mans the SPMC table. 12.Julia Crabb, wife of show chairman Mike Crabb, lent a hand with souvenir card sales. 13.The "assembly line" for souvenir card mail sales, manned by (from left to right) Stephen Taylor, Bob Azpiazu, Julia Crabb, and Wendell Wolka, cranks up to move those orders out! 14.The end of the line! I was advised that this chore was found in my job description in the "other duties as required" section. 2 See next two pages • ••••••;:>. 6 Page 234 Whole No. 101 Candid Canter at Memphis 1982 Paper Money Show (See key to pictures in "Interest Bearing Notes" 4 7 Paper Money Page 235 Candid Camera at Memphis 1982 Paper Money Show (See key to pictures in "Interest Bearing Notes") 9 12 10 13 11 14 Page 236 Whole No. 101 First and Last Notes from Bureau of Engraving & Printing Packages Addenda to the article in Paper Money No. 99, page 105 New Variety of Encased Postage Stamp Found by GEORGE H. WETTACH Richard J. Balbaton, a dealer in philatelic and numismatic materials, recently found in a old-time collection a previously unreported and unlisted variety of encased postage stamp. As shown here, it is the 24c of the 1861-67 series of stamps in an encasement of Joseph L. Bates, with "Fancy Goods" in two words. Since the above article was written, answers to my queries to the Bureau have been received, with the following additions and corrections now available: — The method described is no longer in use at BEP. Notes are still packaged in bricks of 4,000 with 40 packages of 100 notes each, and the blocks of wood are still used, but plastic straps have replaced the steel and a clear plastic wrap has replaced the kraft paper. In addition, only one label which is pasted to the end board is included with each brick. —The method you described was utilized for all denominations just as the current method is used for all notes, no matter what denomination or bank. It was started approximately in 1948. —The kraft paper wrap was terminated in March 19 77. —The standard package was and is 4,000 notes per brick. —Labels were and are different colors for each denomination: $ 1 - light blue $ 2 - green $ 5 - red $ 10 - black $ 20 - purple $ 50 - brown $100 - olive —The packaging procedure did not and does not vary with different Federal Reserve Districts. March-Sowards Forms New Paper Money Company Larry Marsh, formerly of Criswell's, has formed a new company, A-Z Financial Americana of St. Louis, Missouri, in partnership with Neil Sowards of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Marsh was in business from 1974-79 in St. Louis under the name Currency Times Past, before becoming retail director for Criswell's in 1979. Marsh first became a numismatist at the age of six and has been an avid collector of paper money ever since. He received a B.A. in History from Washington University in 1970. He has been a member of both ANA and SPMC for close to 20 years and is active in various other numismatic organizations. Marsh has been married for seven years to Linda Kiel Marsh and they have one child, Lisa, who is two. Linda will once again be assisting him at many of the coin shows. A-Z Financial Americana will deal in obsolete, Confederate and colonial currency, as well as old checks, obsolete stocks and bonds. The company will have possibly the largest stock of old checks for the collector in the country! The business will be conducted principally at major shows around the country and through the mails. In addition, there is contemplated a mail bid auction of rare checks and other paper Americana items in late Spring. The company's address in St. Louis is 1416 South Big Bend Blvd., St. Louis, Missouri 63117. .7ON • ON.

HODGES' AMERICAN BANK NOTE SAFE-GUARD by Edward M. Hodges 1865. 350 pp Cloth bound. 1977 reprint by Pennell Publishing Co. $19.50 postpaid. "Hodges' " as this book is known, contains descriptions of over 10,000 genuine notes from 30 states, 19 Canadian banks, and the United States notes issued prior to 1865. This 1865 edition was copyrighted in 1864 and at this time the United States was at v- ar with the Confederate States. As a result the listing for six Southern states was not included because they were not a part of the United States. Louisiana was included as in 1864 it was occupied by Union troops under the infamous General Butler. West Virginia was added to this edition as it seceded from Virginia and join the Union in 1863. We have added a section from the 1863 edition (copyrighted in 1862) containing the six states deleted from the 1865 edition making this reprint the most comprehensive Hodges' ever printed. The format used consists of three rows of ten notes listed in rectangles on each page. To quote from E.M. Hodges "The SAFEGUARD is almost indispensable." Collectors will agree with him. We bound 10 copies in genuine leather and interleaved them with plain paper (for your own notes) and offer them subject to prior sale for $75.00 each. THE BANK OF THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA by Dr. F. Mauldin Lesesne 1970. 221 pp Hand bound. University of South Carolina Press $14.95 postpaid. The South had many colorful banks prior to the Civil War, but few could compare with the Bank of the State of South Carolina. From its charter in 1812 until 1881 when its history ended, it was colorful, controversial, and redeemed its issued notes. The "faith and credit" of the State of South Carolina was pledged to back this bank. Dr. Lesesne's account of this bank is interesting reading to both collector of paper money and historical students. Few banks have such detailed accounts of their life as the Bank of the State of South Carolina. The book is annotated and has a wonderful bibliography. If you only read one bank history, and should read this one as it will interest both South Carolinians and non-Carolinians alike. It is just an excellent story of a very important bank.
