    NEW BOOK: THE HIGHEST PERFECTION: A HISTORY OF DE LA RUE

    02/17/2013

    Highlight: THE HIGHEST PERFECTION: A HISTORY OF DE LA RUE http://www.coinbooks.org/esylum_v16n07a05.html Last week we had an article about the bicentennial celebration of banknote printer De La Rue. I noted that there was a history of De La Rue published in 1963: The World of De La Rue. The Old World and the New presented on the occasion of the One Hundred and Fiftieth Anniversary of The House of De la Rue 1813-1963 , and wondered if there would be a new edition for their 200th.

    The Centinel, vol. 35, no. 3

    1/9/1987

    Highlight: Guernsey 5-pound note 1980 portrays Thomas de la Rue, his envelope making machine 1851 , the house where he lived at the left of the scene, and a stamp- like design with the initials of the company at upper right. The note itself was printed by the company, as well as the four Guernsey stamps (Scott 56-59).

    Early Engineering Reminiscences (1815-40) of George Escol Sellers

    /1965

    Highlight: that I had seen their em- bossing presses at work (I had been introduced to both Dobbs and De la Rueshown me their presses in operation) Mr. Donkin thought with such a letter I would be treated with civility and probably be shown through the mill. In that case a mere passing glance would be sufficient to tell whether the pulp dresser was an infringement on Ibotson or not. If I would consent to go Mr. Donkin would procure the letter from Mr. De la Rue; there could be no harm in that, but I must consider the matter. I accompanied Mr. Ibotson home, arriving there after dark. During the evening, as the mill was running day and night, he proposed going through it to see some of hi

    The Shekel, vol. 37, no. 5 (September-October 2004)

    /2004

    Highlight: We had several responses to Sam Halperin’s Mystery of 1948 Thomas De La Rue Anglo Palestine Bank note which was printed in the last issue of the SHEKEL. You will recall that Sam asked the readers to write to the editor and tell him what you thought on the subject. Most believed that the de la Ruepictured was part of a trial series of designs by this banknote printer for the proposed new issues. However the British were certainly irritated over giving up their mandate for Palestine and most probability exerted pressure which prevented the de la Rue Company from supplying the notes. Instead the American Banknote Company secured the order using gillouches recycled from previously issued notes for China. The editor particularly recommends reading “Jewish History in a Capsule' 1 , the

    The Bankers Magazine [vol. 6]

    /1852

    Highlight: The envelope machines of De la Ruerobation, and to these and other improvements is to be attributed the striking reduction in the price of envelopes within the last few years. The machines have been so well described already, that a repetition is unnecessary ; by a very slight difference, however, in the dies of the two machines, one important vari- ation in the form of the envelopes is produced. In those by De la Rue Co., the ends are first folded down, then the bottom and top flaps. In Waterlow’s envelope, the bottom flap is first folded, then those at the ends, and then all are covered by the top flap. This is, obviously, the most useful envelope for business purposes, and especially for inclos- ures, as the seal catches all

    OBITUARY: SIR ARTHUR NORMAN, BANKNOTE PRINTER

    10/30/2011

    Highlight: BANKNOTE PRINTER http://www.coinbooks.org/esylum_v14n45a23.html Banknote printer De La Rue's former chairman Sir Arthur Norman died this week. The Financial Times published an obituary with some interesting stories of his career. -Editor Sir Arthur Norman was no ordinary banknote printer. The former De La Rue chairman, who has died aged 94, once ran a clandestine operation in prewar Shanghai, printing currency for Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalist government in China under the noses of the Japanese occupiers. He pretended to manufacture playing cards and smuggled the notes out in dustcarts. His derring-do was typical of the forthright approach of one of the leading industrialists of post-second world war Britain. After serving with distinction as a Royal Air Force pilot in the war, Norman

    THE 1984 MALTESE ZEKKINI BANKNOTE MYSTERY

    06/01/2014

    Highlight: The seller was de la Rue, one of the world's largest, if not the largest, printers of banknotes. The Z10 note had an estimated price of between ?800 and ?1,000 and the Z2 note was estimated at between ?700 and ?900. But had former Prime Minister Dom Mintoff actually contemplated changing the Maltese currency to zekkini? The answer, according to the Central Bank of Malta, is a definite _No?. According to the Central Bank, the zekkini notes and most of the other CBM note illustrations in the Spink catalogue are simply token notes with fanciful designs that were created by private individuals or entities, none of which had any association with the Central Bank of Malta. Speaking to this newspaper about the monetary curiosity, Central Bank Governor Josef Bonnici explained that the only change
