    The Centinel, vol. 54, no. 3

    1/9/2006

    Highlight: The Higgins Museum came to be by the convergence of interests between Bill Higgins and John HickmanBorn in 1913, Higgins was an enthusiastic col- lector from childhood, which he spent in Clay and Dickenson counties, his numismatic interests being initially (from the early 1940s to the early 1970s) focused on silver dollar size coins of the world. His interest transferred to National Bank Note issues in 1972 when, at the urging of the late John Hickman, he acquired a unique $100 note of The First National Bank of Spirit Lake, Iowa, from the late Amon Carter. Hickman was the leading early cataloger, dealer and enthusiastic advocate of National Bank Note issues, trumpeting their merits as “history in your hand,” who spent 20 years in service to the Higgins Museum, from 1975 to 1995,

    Public Auction 11

    Highlight: John Hickman passed away thereafter. At times their sales would also feature coins or other collectibles. Dean Oakes still continues with a FPL (Fixed Price List) today that covers mostly all size currency. Back in the middle 19 70’s Ragpickers (paper money collectors and dealers) were not as plentiful today and prices then would be very low in comparison to today’s hot market. The Hickman & Oakes sales started a few years after William Donlon passed aivay, which ended his great sales. The Hickman & Oakes sales continued the same trend in catalog size arrd informative information regarding the notes. Dean was an expert on all paper money and John handled mostly the National Bank Notes which he loved so much. The Hickman and Oakes catalog on National Bank Notes is a standard in the industry

    United States Paper Money: Part I of the October Sale

    Highlight: John Hickman’s sale of the Krakover California notes, and Barney Bluestone’s sale of Grinnell’s Michigan and New York notes, among others, are particularly memorable. The collecting of the first 100 Charter Numbers is popular even though completion is impossible — many of the banks are unknown today despite fair sized outstanding balances. Rarer still are great sales of uncut sheets of National Bank Notes. The late Col. E.H. Green (famous for his coin collection, including all five 1913 Liberty Nickels) attempted to acquire every Serial Number 1 sheet of 1929 National Bank Notes directly from the issuing bank, and amassed an incredible collection of them. Since the private dispersal of his holdings after his death in the 1930’s, there have been only two really important sales of uncut

    United States Paper Money: Part I of the October Sale

    Highlight: sold at auction by John Hickman on March 3, 1990. With virtually unlimited resources and unusual tenacity, Mr. Krakover built the finest collection ever formed of California Nationals. To find a specimen of a California bank finer than that in the Krakover Collection is indeed an achievement. Lot No. 7 7 FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF CHICO. Ch.l3711. $10.00 Uncut Sheet of 6. 1929 TVpe 2. Serial Num- ber A000001-A000006. Choice Uncirculated. There is a very small brown spot between the two center notes, but no other problems. Bright, clean and crisp. No sheets are listed in Huntoon, Van Belkum and Warns. Other than the 6 Uncirculated notes in this sheet, the finest known is only About Uncirculated, and the only note Philip Krakover was able to acquire from this bank was an “About Very Fine” $20.00

    The Philadelphia Americana Sale, Part One: American Paper Currency

    Highlight: This is one of two lazy deuces reported and the last public appearance that we are aware of for either of them was when this note was sold by John Hickman in 1980. Purchased from Tom Denly, October 2004. Previously from John Hickman's sale of April 1980, Lot 249. New York, Troy. The Manufacturers National Bank of Troy. Ch.721. $10. Fr.480. W.1361. 1882BB.

The note is nicely centered on the face, and though it is a little low on the back, the design border is not compromised. A couple of pinholes near the center are noted for accuracy. Autographed signatures are vis- ible, but only one is

    Highlight: LM128 One of my favorite persons to talk to at Memphis was the late John Hickmanrnia bank charter from a bank note collector in south Georgia* The hank charter was from Wilmington, CA, so 1 proceeded to look for a bank note from that bank* I spoke with Don Kelly, and he told me that T would be lucky to locate a note on that hank, and then I probably could not afford it. But Don sug- gested 1 speak to “the Expert” on Nationals Mr. John Hickman. T w-aited my turn to *speak with Mr. Hickmam VVTien 1 showed him the bank charter, John was pleased to see it and told me a lot about bank cliarteiK in general.

    Paper Money (May/June 2011)

    1/5/2011

    Highlight: John Hickman attended the first and told some really funny stories at our table, but then he would, right? We were so fortunate to have him for all too brief a time. Another good soul on my board was Milt Friedberg, so wise and such an asset he was. I contin- ued on the SPMC board for some time as most members know, and remember well when Benny Bolin came on to the board. Bob Schreiner was secretary for a while, Wendell arranged our first web site, and Mark Anderson, our current president, was induced to accept the office of treasurer, I have such great memories of those times, and my own funny stories to tell one day. I was president during the beginning of the Strasburg event, and our first regional meeting there was held in the tav- ern which was closed for the morning, and Ray Walz

    The Asylum, Spring 1988

    1/4/1988

    Highlight: told me that John Hickman told him that 2,400 copies were sold. I will add that the Haxby/Krause reference is long overdue. The only other reference that compares to this "God send" is Criswell's North American Currency. Since this is long out of print, unavailable, and worthless as a pricing guide, you can see the great need for the Haxby/Krause reference. Bob then covered several other books produced by Krause Publications. He said there were no current plans to issue a new edition of the Pick catalog. The Albert Pick catalog on World Paper Money in its fifth edition was last published in 1986 and came in two volumes (general and specialized). Bob said they produced three general volumes to every specialized volume. The Krause/Lemke 1987 Standard Catalog of United States Paper Money in

    Highlight: John Hickman provided “the hook.” I previously received in 1987 the Elston G. Bradfield Literary Award from Central States for an article on Wisconsin Obsolete and National Bank Paper Money. After 32 years I am continuing to enjoy the hobby as I still haven’t seen it all. The most recent acquisi- tion is a Serial No. 1 small size 1929 Oconomowoc, WI, $10 note, which recently surfaced when a non-collector sold an accumu- lation of silver coins.

    Highlight: “Authors John Hickman and Dean Oaks have added nearly another decade of vital National Bank Note information to this new edition,” said Roger Case, pub- lisher of the Krause Publications Numis- matic Division.' “The second edition has been completely updated and is the most accurate reading of National Bank Note values available anywhere. At 1,216 pages, the new STANDARD CATALOG OF NATIONAL BANK NOTES, 2nd edition, covers issues of states and territories, in alphabetical order. Listings are also given for notes of which no surviving examples are currently known. Plus, there is a dramatic increase in the number of high-quality photos — a more than 50% increase from the original volume.

The firm of Krause is well known to collectors and has published hobby materials since the 1950s. Its flagship publication is the Standard Catalog of World Coins. Although dealers mockingly refer to it as “the telephone book” (because it is a large, unwieldy, oversize paperback), it is largely responsible for the market for non-United States coins in this country. Even if the prices are nominal, dealers still prefer to handle coins for which estimates exist, no matter how vague,

    1/1/1992

    Highlight: The Standard Catalog of National Bank Notes by Dean Oakes and John Hickman is already in its second edition, which is remarkable for such a specialized area of collecting. Economic historians who study the period 1863-1935 will find information in it which is hard to obtain anywhere else. The student of banking history can learn that the National Bank of the Commonwealth, New York, was another victim of the crash of 1873. The monetary historian can study regional variations in the demand for bank notes and analyze regional money supplies. The book is in part based on research done in the National Archives; unfor- tunately, no sources or footnotes are given for any of the information, so the reader cannot tell what comes from the National Archives and what from contemporary reference works

    Highlight: Dean Oakes and John Hickman presented MNS & NOW with a $500 donation for letting them have the auction. This doesn't include the very heavy advertising they did through the numismatic press for the auction. This was also their 38th and last auction together. Even though they aren't together anymore, I do hope that they, at least once in a while, have an auction together. Speaking for all Syngraphics - THEY WILL BE MISSED. The Exhibit Committee was Chaired by Irene Neidinger. There were a lot of great exhibits and the lucky winner of the A. P "Del" Bertschy Memorial, Best in Show Award, was Leo Neidinger.

    LOUIS VAN BELKUM 1942-2013

    02/09/2014

    Highlight: the data was traded around and accumulated by both John Hickman and Lyn Knight. In time, Hickman convinced William Higgins of the Higgins National Bank Note Museum in Okoboji, Iowa, of the merits of these data, so after all other avenues were tapped out, Higgins sprang for the orphan states so Louis could complete the job. The data became widely available in 1981 with publication of Don Kelly's National Bank Notes, a guide with prices followed by the Hickman-Oakes Standard Catalog of National Bank Notes, in 1982. Along the way, in 1970, Louis collaborated with M. Owen Warns and Peter Huntoon to produce the blue book of 1929 nationals, The National Bank Notes Issues of 1929-1935. Van Belkum is known by us as Louis or Lou; however, within his family he went by Bill. He was born Louis William

    ARTICLE HIGHLIGHTS NATIONAL BANK NOTE HISTORY

    03/01/2015

    Highlight: John Hickman and Dean Oakes were based in Iowa City and made sales from 1976 to 1989. According to some sources, even their catalogs are now deemed collectible. Hickman found a friend in fellow collector William Higgins Jr., described as a man with means. Hickman helped Higgins assemble a collection, which in 1978 became the Higgins Museum of National Banknotes in Okoboji. The collection today features bills from 278 Iowa towns representing each of the state's 99 counties. Higgins was a contemporary and friend of Ronald Reagan. So besides banknotes, the museum's collection includes an antique "spider" currency printing press, a display arranged for Higgins by President Reagan. I've known about the Higgins Museum for years and have always wanted to go sometime, but until Disney builds a

    1/4/1988

    Highlight: told me that John Hickman told him that 2,400 copies were sold. I will add that the Haxby/Krause reference is long overdue. The only other reference that compares to this "God send" is Criswell's North American Currency. Since this is long out of print, unavailable, and worthless as a pricing guide, you can see the great need for the Haxby/Krause reference. Bob then covered several other books produced by Krause Publications. He said there were no current plans to issue a new edition of the Pick catalog. The Albert Pick catalog on World Paper Money in its fifth edition was last published in 1986 and came in two volumes (general and specialized). Bob said they produced three general volumes to every specialized volume. The Krause/Lemke 1987 Standard Catalog of United States Paper Money in

    Highlight: I haven’t had as much fun since I sat in rapt attention in John Hickman’s presence in Memphis. It gave me a great idea for the state NOW show in April — I may bring up my Upper Peninsula Michigan notes and perhaps Tom can bring some Wisconsin notes and we could put on a program about the stories behind finding the notes... and maybe we can get Chet Krause to sit in as well. That’s enough for now... see you at a coin show! President Brandimore presents Leon Saryan with his new Life Membership card. Mark Melby also became a new Life Member at last month’s NOW show.

    Highlight: In 1978 I met John Hickman, the great salesman who got me to practically give up coins and switch to collecting National Banknotes "After all," said John "many of these notes are just as rare as 1913 Liberty Head nickels... they just haven't been previously owned by millionaires... yet" Am I glad I listened to him! 14

    Highlight: Dean Oakes and John Hickman presented MNS & NOW with a $500 donation for letting them have the auction. This doesn't include the very heavy advertising they did through the numismatic press for the auction. This was also their 38th and last auction together. Even though they aren't together anymore, I do hope that they, at least once in a while, have an auction together. Speaking for all Syngraphics - THEY WILL BE MISSED. The Exhibit Committee was Chaired by Irene Neidinger. There were a lot of great exhibits and the lucky winner of the A. P "Del" Bertschy Memorial, Best in Show Award, was Leo Neidinger. He won with his beautiful display of U.S. Gold Type Designs. The award was presented to him by Del's widow, Luella Bertschy, at the Awards Breakfast at the Hyatt on Sunday. Karl Kuiyla won

The firm of Krause is well known to collectors and has published hobby materials since the 1950s. Its flagship publication is the Standard Catalog of World Coins. Although dealers mockingly refer to it as “the telephone book” (because it is a large, unwieldy, oversize paperback), it is largely responsible for the market for non-United States coins in this country. Even if the prices are nominal, dealers still prefer to handle coins for which estimates exist, no matter how vague,

    1/1/1992

    Highlight: The Standard Catalog of National Bank Notes by Dean Oakes and John Hickman is already in its second edition, which is remarkable for such a specialized area of collecting. Economic historians who study the period 1863-1935 will find information in it which is hard to obtain anywhere else. The student of banking history can learn that the National Bank of the Commonwealth, New York, was another victim of the crash of 1873. The monetary historian can study regional variations in the demand for bank notes and analyze regional money supplies. The book is in part based on research done in the National Archives; unfor- tunately, no sources or footnotes are given for any of the information, so the reader cannot tell what comes from the National Archives and what from contemporary reference works

    Highlight: John Hickman provided “the hook.” I previously received in 1987 the Elston G. Bradfield Literary Award from Central States for an article on Wisconsin Obsolete and National Bank Paper Money. After 32 years I am continuing to enjoy the hobby as I still haven’t seen it all. The most recent acquisi- tion is a Serial No. 1 small size 1929 Oconomowoc, WI, $10 note, which recently surfaced when a non-collector sold an accumu- lation of silver coins. Amazing notes are still coming to daylight. Tom Snyder Tom Snyder Detail from a Waukesha historical marker The Centinel I WINTER 2010-201 1 49

    Highlight: “Authors John Hickman and Dean Oaks have added nearly another decade of vital National Bank Note information to this new edition,” said Roger Case, pub- lisher of the Krause Publications Numis- matic Division.' “The second edition has been completely updated and is the most accurate reading of National Bank Note values available anywhere. At 1,216 pages, the new STANDARD CATALOG OF NATIONAL BANK NOTES, 2nd edition, covers issues of states and territories, in alphabetical order. Listings are also given for notes of which no surviving examples are currently known. Plus, there is a dramatic increase in the number of high-quality photos — a more than 50% increase from the original volume. Both the bank’s name as printed on the note and the bank’s charter number are listed, as is a concise
