Charter Member LM-2849 LM-5773 Paper Money Whole No. 126 Page 217 An Analysis of National Bank Note Circulation Still Outstanding Or HOW MANY ARE STILL OUT THERE? by ROBERT R. MOON SPMC 5766 Starting in 1863, the United States government issued almost $17 billion worth of national bank notes through over 12,000 federally-chartered banks. Roughly $14 billion of this amount was of the pre-1929 large-size variety and another $2.8 billion was of the Series of 1929, or small-size type. When the national currency era came to an end in 1935, there was $769 million outstanding as of June 30th of that year. A s a collector of these notes for several years, I have oftenwondered (and I'm sure many other collectors have,too) how many national bank notes from these many millions of dollars are still unredeemed today? While such fine works as Hickman and Oakes' Standard Catalog of National Bank Notes can give you complete data for each bank up until 1935, what happened after that? William H. Dillistin's A De- scriptive History of National Bank Notes published in 1956 pro- vides further information, but it is now almost thirty years later and I feel some sort of update is needed. While very complete records were kept by the Comptroller of the Currency on national bank note circulation until the end of the note-issuing period in 1935, the availability of data becomes much more elusive after that. Information on individual bank circulation was no longer kept after 1935 and all national cur- rency outstanding was then lumped into a single report each year in the annual reports of the Comptroller of the Currency. These reports also listed less and less information as time went on, and today, it is virtually impossible to find any statistics at all. However, what I did find I thought would be of interest to other collectors. Please note that all tables listed here do not include Federal Reserve Bank notes which at times have been confused with national bank notes or "national currency". THE END OF THE NOTE -ISSUING PERIOD In June of 1935 the national bank note era came to an end, and at that point in time, this is what the national currency situa- tion looked like: Amount of Outstanding National Bank Notes as of June 30, 1935 Denomi- nation Large -Size Small -Size Total 1 $ 340,749 $ 340,749 2 162,420 162,420 5 10,379,825 $108,733,550 119,113,375 10 16,829,215 280,661,860 297,491,075 20 14,454,460 265,858,540 280,313.000 50 2,657,100 34,190,800 36,847,900 100 3,497,100 35,180,100 38,677,200 500 87,500 87,500 1,000 21,000 21,000 Fractional Parts 62,069 457 62,526 Subtotal 48,491,438 724,625,307 773,116,745 Redeemed but unsorted — (4,021,100) (4,021,100) Total $48,491,438 $720,604,207 $769,095,645 As can be seen, the large-size total is a small fraction of the small-size total. Considering that just several years before, all na- tional bank notes were of large-size variety gives you an idea as to how quickly they were removed from circulation. The follow- ing chart further emphasizes this point: Large-size national bank note outstanding circulation as of October 31 for each year listed 1929 — $598 million 1933 —$58 million 1930 — 128 million 1934 — 50 million 1931 — 92 million 1935 — 45 million 1932 — 74 million 1936 — 42 million National Bank Note Circulation in 1956 Dillistin's book listed a table of outstanding circulation by denomination some 21 years after the end of the note-issuing period, and since it is the latest one I could find, I felt that repro- ducing it here would be useful for comparison purposes: Page 218 Paper Money Whole No. 126 Amount of Outstanding National Bank Notes as of June 31, 1956 Denomi- nation Large -size Small -size Total 1 $ 339.723 $ 339,723 2 161,688 161,688 5 8,489,460 $ 2,997,555 11,487,015 10 10,858,340 9.440,470 20,298,810 20 6,801,640 14,281,700 21,083,340 50 1,193.550 3,515.700 4,709,250 100 1,630.900 4,466,550 6,097,450 500 86,500 86,500 1,000 21,000 — 21,000 Fractional Parts 62,139 487 62.626 Total $29,644,940 $34,702,462 $64,347,402 After this report, I was unable to find a listing for both large and small-size but rather just a total for each denomination and the latest information that was that detailed was for 1962. Before listing that table, below is the total amount of outstand- ing circulation as of December 31st of each year between 1956 and 1961: 1956 — $63,302,057. 1957 — $60,850,947. 1958 — $58,709,057. 1959 — $56,749,403. 1960 — $55,320,721. 1961 — $53,776,697.50 On June 30, 1961 Congress passed the Old Currency Ad- justment Act. This law permitted the Treasury Department to re- move from its books. or "write off", quantities of large-size cur- rency issued prior to 1929 which it felt would never be re- deemed because it was irretrieveably lost, destroyed or in the hands of the collectors. Taking advantage of this Act, the De- partment "wrote off" $15 million in large-size national currency on August 27, 1962. Below is the last report by denomination (as of June 30, 1962 before the write-off): Denomination Total 1 $ 339,644 2 161,644 5 10,958,047 10 17,652,940 20 16,054,390 50 3,269.200 100 4,334,200 500 86,500 1.000 21,000 Fractional Parts 62,627 TOTAL $52,940,192 As can be seen, a much larger percentage of the high-denom- ination notes were redeemed between 1956 and 1962 than the $5s or $10s. Since the collecting of national currency was in its infancy, the idea of holding onto a $20 bill (let alone a $50 or a $100) was something that not many people contemplated. In- terestingly, a few First Charter "Aces" and "Deuces" were still redeemed just twenty-five years ago! After mid-1962, only year- end totals were available: 1962 — $37,667,904.50 (plus $15 million) 1963 — $36,744.463 (plus $15 million) On November 16, 1964, another $13.5 million was written off. 1964 — $22,597.493 (plus $28.5 million) 1965 — $22,006,929.50 (plus $28.5 million) In May 1966 public law 89-427 was passed: it transferred re- demption to the Treasurer of the United States and the following totals are taken from the annual reports issued by the Secretary of the Treasury. Also during that same month on May 26, a further $420,000 was written off for a total of $28,920,000, which just about equals the amount of large-size outstanding. The following totals thus basically represent the amount of small-size left in circula- tion (as of June 30 of each year). 1966 — $21,300,322 1971 — $20,116,393 1967 — $20,905,827 1972 — $19,971,424 1968 — $20,663,789 1973 — $19,843,049 1969 — $20,466,607 1974 — $19,761,578 1970 — $20,271,289 1975 — $19,691,953 After 1975, the amount outstanding was no longer reported to the last digit but rather in amounts of thousands. Also, with the change of the federal fiscal year, the following totals are for September 30 of each year. 1976 — $19,635,000 1978 — $19,542,000 1977 — $19,581,000 1979 — $19.511,000 Unfortunately. I could find no further information after September 20, 1979. After this date, the amount outstanding was simply lumped into a category called "Currencies No Longer Issued" along with Federal Reserve Bank Notes, Silver Certificates, etc. As can be seen, even in the late 70s, thousands of national bank notes were disappearing from the scene even as the hobby of collecting them was "heating up". A handful are still being redeemed each year. Hopefully, there aren't too many of the "good ones" being removed from collectors' hands. The $29 million in large-size remaining represents 60% of the 1935 total of $48 million, or 0.21% of the $14 billion issuance and the approximately $19.5 million remaining small-size is 2.7% of the 1935 total, or about 0.7% of the $2.8 billion issued of that variety. The question now is: What percentage of the remaining $48-plus million still exists and is therefore potentially available to collectors? Natural disasters have, of course, taken their toll. For instance, how many California Brown Backs and Red Seals disappeared in the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, or First Charter notes in the great Chicago Fire of 1871? More im- portant, how many notes have been hidden in the ground or walls (or mattresses!) and then forgotten and left to the ele- ments? If 21 one-thousand dollar notes (out of a mere 7,379 issued) could be lost, how many one-dollar notes have been de- stroyed? No one-thousand dollar notes have been redeemed since 1916 and none of the 21 remaining are known in collec- tor's hands. While it is possible that one could surface, if it hasn't by now the likelihood is very small that one will show up. I hope I have shed some light on the national currency situa- tion and if there is anyone who knows or who has access to other information (such as a friend in the right bureau in the Treasury Department), which would further refine my data, I would appreciate hearing from you.

DORNFEST (PART II) The Port Richmond National Bank 1902-1926 Staten Island National Bank and Trust Company 1926-1957 Y 1902, the long and successful operation of the First National Bank of Staten Island had proved to local businessmen that there was a profit to be made in na- tional banking. Staten Island had witnessed a good deal of growth since the First National had opened its doors in 1886, creating a demand for new currency to finance business ventures. The First National had successfully directed some of its activi- ties toward Port Richmond, reinforcing the belief in some busi- ness circles that that was a prime area for a new bank. However, such opinions were by no means universal. While it was true that New York state officials pointed to Port Richmond as a "model village," having the best local government in the state, there were businessmen who felt that the population was not large enough to support a commercial banking institution on the north shore. But it was not native Islanders who initiated the first moves toward the foundation of the second national bank in the borough. Robert D. Kent and Ernest R. Moody of Passaic, New Jersey came to Port Richmond in 1901 for conferences with businessmen looking for local support in a banking venture. Both men had founded other banks in New York and New Jersey, and Staten Island had caught their attention as an area for potential growth.' The meetings were successful and in January 1902 William J. Burlee of Port Richmond, leading a group of five associates, applied to the Comptroller of the Currency for the forms neces- sary to organize a national bank with a capital stock of $100,000. Having received the materials, the organizing meeting for the Port Richmond National Bank was held at 4 p.m. on March 12, 1902 at the office of the Burlee Dry Dock Company in Port Rich- mond. Directors were elected, and later that afternoon they held their first meeting. At that time the directors elected the officers of the bank: Charles E. Griffith, President; Robert D. Kent, First Vice-President; William J. Burlee, Second Vice-President and Ernest R. Moody, Cashier. A committee was also formed to secure a place of business for the new institution. 2 Bank officials soon secured a three-year lease from the Man- hattan Life Insurance Company on a property at the corner of Richmond Avenue and Richmond Terrace. By May 1, $61,000 of capital stock had been paid in, charter number 6198 had been received from the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Pdrt Richmond National Bank opened for business on May 5, 1902. 2 The doubters who had felt that a bank could not survive in Port Richmond were proved wrong almost immediately. By the end of 1902 deposits totaled $228,218 and by 1904 the institution had paid its first dividend, 6%, to the stockholders. Mr. Moody was an excellent manager. His good judgment helped local busi- nesses to prosper and when in doubt about how to proceed in a questionable situation, he never hesitated to consult with leading citizens of the village for their advice and counsel.' As with the First National Bank, the new institution chose to issue currency. Therefore, $25,000 in United States Treasury Bonds were purchased to back the circulation.

Three years later deposits had reached $668,320 and they continued to grow steadily, reaching $1,405,356 by 1922. During this entire period there is nothing in the local press to indicate that banking operations at the Port Richmond national were anything but normal. The office of the Comptroller of the Currency has not allowed the examination reports of this bank to be made public because the required fifty years have not passed since the bank was merged in 1957. How- ever, the Comptroller's annual reports record steady growth . 6 The bank applied for and was granted an extension of its charter for a second twenty-year period early in 1922, and at that time received permission from the Comptroller to increase its capital stock to $200,000. Two years later, Ernest Miller suc- ceeded to the position of cashier of the Port Richmond National upon the death of Mr. Moody.' Events now began to transpire that would lead to the rapid growth of the bank into the leading institution of its type on Staten Island. In January 1926 the directors again voted to increase the bank's capital stock, this time to $500,000. Plans were also made to seek the permission of the Federal Reserve Board for authority to do a trust business. This would make the bank the only one on the island that could legally be an executor, trustee, administrator or guardian of an estate. Anticipating the required approval, the bank rebuilt and expanded the rear half of its building in 1926, and moved the main entrance to 26 Richmond Avenue.' In a related development, a committee of local leaders in Tompkinsville had been at work laying the foundation for a new national bank for that area. But with the imminent passage of the McFadden Act (1927), which would authorize national banks to operate branches, the Tompkinsville group decided it would be wiser to join with the Port Richmond National Bank to create an expanded institution . 9 By May 1, 1926 all necessary authorizations for the expansion of its business had been received from the federal government, and on that date the Port Richmond National Bank became the Staten Island National Bank and Trust Company with a capital stock of $500,000. On May 4th the Tompkinsville branch opened at 43 Victory Boulevard at the corner of St. Mark's Place with John A. Franklin as manager. The branch had a separate advisory committee of local businessmen and others elected by the Board of Directors, and in many ways functioned as an inde- pendent bank. It remained at Victory Boulevard until August 31, 1941 when the Staten Island National acquired the Bank of Man- hattan and the Manhattan Safe Deposit Company building at 28 Bay Street, to which the office moved. This building has fulfilled many functions over the years including housing the library of Staten Island Community College as well as the first library of Richmond College. The structure still stands." All government bonds bearing the circulation privilege had been called for redemption in 1935 and at that time the Staten Island National, along with all other national banks, lost its right to issue currency. Meanwhile, the bank had acquired its second branch on March 30, 1940 by absorbing the Tottenville National Bank, which had operated in that community since 1906. This acquisition brought total assets of the Staten Island National to $6,000,000 and made possible larger loans to industry and individuals. A third branch was opened at 139 New Dorp Lane on July 5, 1950, and finally, with the acquisition on November 1, 1951 of the West New Brighton Bank which had been in business since 1920, the Staten Island National added the last office to its system." In March of 1956, a new building at 200 New Dorp Lane re- placed the old New Dorp branch bringing a further improvement of services to Staten Islanders, and eight months later the bank's office in St. George moved to new facilities at 56 Bay Street. 12 With the enormous potential for growth on Staten Island, espe- cially considering the possibility of a bridge across the Narrows, a number of metropolitan banks began to make merger proposals to the Staten Island National. Its well-established system of five offices, its popularity and strong balance sheet made the Island bank an attractive buy-out candidate." The directors decided that an offer from The Chase Manhattan Bank, a state banking institution, was too advantageous to turn down. Staten Island National shares, of which there were 15,000 outstanding, were to be exchanged for Chase stock on the basis of one Staten Island National for six of Chase selling for about $50 per share. The staff of the bank was to be retained, and an ad- visory committee composed of members of the Board of Direc- tors and chaired by former President Miller would help to make the transition to a new management smoother." The Staten Island National directors voted in favor of the merger on May 14, 1957 and those of Chase followed suit the next day. The approval of the Island bank's stockholders was ob- tained by an overwhelming majority early in July, as was that of the Chase stockholders soon after. All former branches of the Staten Island National opened for business as Chase offices on July 22, 1957 under Vice President Robert Whytock, thus mark- ing the resignation of another national bank charter on Staten Island. 15 Paper Money Whole No. 126 Page 221 OFFICERS Chairmen of the Board J.

The circuitous logic behind the reassignment of charter number 20 to the Fifth-Third National Bank of Cincinnati, Ohio, in place of charter 2798 is discussed on page 70. All the facts presented there are accurate except that the Comp- troller did not authorize the reassignment. Apparently the linkage was too tenuous for him to feel comfortable unless he was acting under greater authority. Congress was responsible for this reassignment with the following act: Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled. That the Comptroller of the Currency be. and he is hereby, authorized and directed to issue to the Fifth-Third National Bank of Cincinnati, Ohio, charter number 20 in lieu of their present charter number 2798, said charter number 20 being the original charter number of the Third National Bank of Cincinnati, Ohio, which bank was merged and consolidated with the Fifth National Bank of Cincinnati, Ohio, in the year 1908, under the name of the Fifth-Third National Bank of Cincinnati, Ohio, said consolidated bank having succeeded to all the assets. good will, rights, privileges, and emoluments of the said Third National Bank of Cincinnati, Ohio. (Approved Feb- ruary 26, 1913). The reassignment was made by the Comptroller on March 5, 1913. 19-year banks and the National Bank Act of February 25, 1863: Paper Money, vol. xxv, p. 163-165. The statement is made that the Act of February 25, 1863 $5 face plates were faithfully matched with Act of February 25, 1863 back plates. This is not accurate. Tom Conklin advises that he has a $5 Original Series note from the First National Bank of Hobart, NY (193) L777290-3004-D that has an Act of February 25, 1863 face plate but an Act of June 3, 1864 back plate.

LEMON PURPOSE AND OVERVIEW The purpose of this article is to provide information on the last of the 12-subject $5 back plates, a group that in- cludes the narrow and wide II varieties. We discovered that the narrow and wide II plates were prepared in sep- arate groups distinct from those before and after by (1) lapses in manufacture of up to six months and (2) differ- ences in manufacturing technology. In researching these varieties, we discovered that back plate 2007 was the first 12-subject narrow plate, not the last wide I as mistakenly catalogued (O'Donnell, 1982). We did not locate any policy statements explaining the reason for reversion to the wide style in the 2067 through 2096 group. We speculate that it occurred as a quirk associated with renewed demand for 12-subject plates that arose from delays in implementing the conversion to 18-subject plates. WIDE AND NARROW BACKS A DECISION was made to reduce the dimensions of thebacks on small-size U.S. currency late in the 12-subjectera so that there would be greater registration tolerances between face and back printings. This change was implemented on the $1, $5, $10 and $20 denominations. The only distin- guishing feature on the $5s was a very minor engraving change in the scroll work on either side of -FIVE DOLLARS" along the bottom as shown on Figure 1. PLATE APPROVAL DATA Our search for information on the wide I, narrow, and wide II varieties led to an examination of Bureau of Engraving and Printing certified proofs now held in the numismatic collections of the Smithsonian Institution. These proofs provide three cru- cial pieces of information: (1) the plate approval date, (2) plate number, and (3) plate manufacturing designation. The plate ap- proval date is the day when the plate was certified for use. Plate numbers constitute running Bureau control numbers for all plates. Plate numbers differ from plate serial numbers, which are consecutively assigned to particular types of plates such as $5 backs. The plate serial number is engraved on each subject and Figure 1. Plate serial 2041 is a narrow design, 2093 is a wide II, and 2097 is a narrow design from the first 18-subject $5 back plate. The 2097 note is a Series of 1950A Federal Reserve Note with serial G01470002 . The arrow points to two pairs of vertical lines to the right of the curl on a narrow back. Notice that there are three pairs of vertical lines on the wide II. Paper Money Whole No. 126 appears in the lower right corner inside the border on the printed $5 backs. Most plates also carry a plate marking such as El, which reveals the manufacturing process used to make the plate. PLATE MAKING Two methods were used to make plates during the period when the 12-subject plates were being phased out (Bureau of Engraving and Printing, 1962). Both are still employed. The oldest method is a transfer technique whereby a roll is made by rolling a solid, soft, steel cylinder under great pressure across the face of an ingalio (lines cut into the surface) master engraving containing the image of the note to be printed. The completed roll contains a reverse image in raised relief on its surface. It is hardened by heat treating. Next, under tons of pressure, the roll is used to press its raised image into a soft steel plate as many times as desired. The plate serial numbers are then engraved on each of the subjects on the plate and it is hardened for use. A modern process for making plates is that of electroplating, a high technology invention of the Bureau of Engraving and Print- ing in the early part of this century. The concept is simple. A master plate is prepared. Its surface is coated with a very fine carbon compound. Next, successive layers of nickel are electro- plated onto the surface. each thickening the sandwich of metal forming on top of the master. The completed raised relief re- verse image from the master is called an alto and it is peeled from the master plate, splitting from it along the carbon layer. The alto is used in identical fashion as a model upon which any number of production plates are produced by electrodeposition. Each of the production plates is an exact duplicate of the original master plate; these facsimiles are called bassos. After they are peeled from the alto, their press lives can be materially pro- longed by electroplating them with a final coating of chrome, the hardest metal known. It appears that the plate serial numbers are engraved on the bassos before the final chrome plating operation. The last critical step in preparing basso press plates is to secure the basso to a durable backing that will resist flexing. This is ac- complished either by welding the nickel basso to an iron back- ing, or cementing the basso to the iron backing using a durable adhesive. The designation EI in Table 1 reveals an electrolyti- cally prepared basso that was affixed to an iron backing. The designation E also refers to an electrolytic plate, but there is a technical difference in its production. In contrast, the first two $5 18-subject back plates were steel plates prepared using the transfer process. FIRST NARROW $5 BACK PLATES As shown in Table 1, the first 12-subject narrow $5 back plates were completed in November 1951. These were innova- tions, and were prepared using a slightly different process than the predecessor wide Is. They form a distinct group by being separated by over six months from the last wide I. Once they were begun, they were prepared continuously until February 26, 1952. Then another time lapse occurred, this time being only two months. The wide Its using the El technology began to be produced continuously from April 1952 until the last of the 12-subject plates was made with plate serial 2096 in May 1952. The last deliveries of $5 notes from the 12-subject plates were made as follows: Series of 1928F Legal Tender Notes-April 27, 1953, Series of 1950 Federal Reserve Notes for Minnea- polis and St. Louis - September 1, 1953, and Series of 1934D Silver Certificates - October 1, 1953 (Shafer, 1967).

The conversion of all denominations to 18-subject formats was completed in September 1953 (Bureau of Engraving and Print- ing, 1962). It is evident that the first 18-subject $5 printings did not take place until after March 31, 1953, based on the approval dates in Table 1. The first 18-subject printings were Series of 1935D $1 Silver Certificates. The first 18-subject $5 deliveries were in turn Series of 1953 Legal Tender Notes - May 6. 1953, Series of 1953 Silver Certificates-May 12, 1953, and Series of 1950A St. Louis Federal Reserve Notes -July 6, 1953 (Shafer, 1967).

HUGHES, SPMC 7 "RAG PICKERS", more formally known as paper money collectors, enjoy the thrill of the chase. Want-list in hand, we prowl coin shows and shops searching for that elusive note we need to complete a prized collection. But sometimes the chase turns out to be not quite so thrilling. Witness my latest adventure in my search for rare Confederate notes. It began with a telephone call in which a heavily-accented voice said, "Mr. Hughes, my banker gave me your name as a person who would know about a Confederate bill I have." Here we go again, I thought. A non-collector with a common 1864 $10 note. But I owed the caller the courtesy of a reply. "My name is Karakis. My son and I own a liquor store here. The bill I have is for $1,000 and my banker thought it might be valuable to a collector." To readers not familiar with Confederate currency, the denomination "$1,000" is crucial. The Confederacy issued only one note of that amount, the rare and valuable "Montgomery Note" issue of 1861; notes which were printed in New York before hostilities began. Only 607 were issued, so the number that exists today is probably no more than 100 in all grades. "Mr. Karakis, it is a valuable note, depending upon its condi- tion. But let's be sure it's genuine—there are lots of reproduc- tions around, especially some made for a cereal company about thirty years ago. Do you have the note in front of you?" Paper Money Whole No. 126 "Are the edges tattered or torn? Is the paper all there? Any corners missing?" I was getting a little excited now. If it was a genuine Montgomery note it sure was a long shot. But liquor store owners get all sorts of things offered to them by alcoholics, so perhaps that had happened here. Mr. Karakis assured me that the entire note was there. "All right," I told him, "I'll come over and take a look. But do you want to sell it?" "Yes, I'll sell it. For whatever you think it's worth." That did it. It was about a twenty-mile round trip but I thought it might be worth it. "O.K., I'll be there in a few minutes." When I walked into the liquor store the young man at the counter smiled, "May I help you?" "Yes, my name is Hughes. Mr. Karakis called me about a Confederate note he has." "That's my father. He's back in the office. Go on back." The gentleman smiled pleasantly and shook my hand. "The bill's in the register. Come on behind the counter." The son continued to wait on customers nearby and paid little attention to us. His father lifted the tray from the register and removed an old envelope, which he handed to me. I held my breath as I opened it. Inside was the "Montgomery Note", a typical modern reprint in bright red ink, all the same color, signatures, serial number, portraits, everything. It was a simple one-color offset job on cheap paper. I hid my disappointment as best I could. "I'm afraid it's just a modern reproduction, Mr. Karakis. Just a souvenir and almost worthless." I handed the envelope back to him. The $1,000 "Montgomery Note" of the Confederate States of America was en- graved and printed by the National Bank Note Com- pany of New York with a total issue of only 607 notes. The colors are green and black on white bank note paper. The note is very rare. "Yes," he replied, "right here on my desk." "Has it been folded, as if somebody had carried it around in his wallet?" "Yes, there are three fold marks." I now knew that the crisp uncirculated treasure was not there, but it could still be valuable. "Now, Mr. Karakis, I'm going to ask you some questions about the bill before I drive over there. Look at the bottom edge - are there two signatures there? Such notes were signed by hand." "Yes, yes," he said, "two signatures." "This particular bill was printed in a beautiful shade of green with black lettering and brown signatures. Is the green color about like the back of the paper money we use now?" "Yes, looks about the same. And two portraits, one on each end." "Well, it sounds good. Now turn the bill over. Is the back blank, with maybe some writing on it?" "Yes, it's blank." As I started to leave I went back for a moment. "Tell me, Mr. Karakis, when we talked on the phone this morning you said the bill was green in color. It's actually red. Did you misunderstand my question?" The son had been listening to our conversation. Now he spoke up. "Ah, come on, Pop," he said, "you know you're color blind. You shouldn't have told him it was green when you didn't know it." Now he turned to me. "I'm sorry you wasted your trip, Mr. Hughes. All colors are just shades of gray to him, but he's too proud to admit it. You know how some people are." The father looked a little hurt and I knew there was no point in staying longer. I smiled at the two men and walked out. Sometimes the chase is not too thrilling but I suppose I'll keep looking. That's the way "rag-pickers" are. Paper Money Whole No. 126 Page 227 HOW TO BORROW BOOKS FROM THE LIBRARY • LIBRARY NOTES WENDELL WOLKA, P.O. Box 366, Hinsdale, IL 60522. This report lists additions to the SPMC Library that have been made since the last report in the November-December issue of PAPER MONEY, No. 114. A recent promotion has resulted in increased travel for business purposes. As a result, the amount of time that I have available to devote to the library has dwindled to prac- tically nothing. I would therefore like to find someone, preferably within a 150 mile radius to Chicago, who would be willing to take over the mantle of librarian as soon as possible. If you're interested, please contact me for further details and information.

Our currency auctions were the first to use the Sealed Mail Bid System, which gives you, the bidder and ultimate buyer, the utmost chance to buy a note at a price you want to pay with no one looking over your shoulder. Wth 31 sales behind us, we look forward to a great 1986-87 for all currency collectors as well as our Sealed mail bid and floor auctions. We have had the pleasure of selling several great notes during the past year with prices going over $30,000. Currency collecting is alive and well. If you have doubts just check over our last two catalogs. You will find the pulse of the market represented there. Our next auction is scheduled for November 14th and 15th of 1986. Our November auction will be held in St. Louis with the Professional Currency Dealers Assoc. convention. Over 800 lots of U.S. currency, fractionals, books and miscellaneous have been consigned for this sale. We will feature a $5.00 state national banknote set, series 1929.
