    The November 2016 Baltimore Auction, U.S Currency

    Highlight: and yet innovative figures in the world of obsolete currency. With his own imprint as well as that of his New York Bank Note Company, he issued sheets of currency for many applicants — a mixture of legitimate state-chartered banks or people seeking such a charter as well as for some fraudsters who had no intention of forming a bank. The last had currency printed in large amounts, signed, and distributed. Washington, D.C., was a favorite location for such issues, as oversight was erratic and often absent. A congressional committee was in charge, and sometimes was active and other times dormant.

Often, the initial proofs would have no final color tint or color protector in order to show the black inked engraving work in a less “cluttered” form. Proofs were usually printed on special paper. In the early days of proof note production, 1800-1825 or so, laid type paper was used. Commencing about 1815, India paper was the most often used paper for proofs. India paper took the proof impression from the fine line engraving very deeply. Proofs usually had some form of cancellation such as small punch holes in the
