    MY NOTE. Wet ink transfers happen when, in error, a sheet of currency paper does not enter the press, the inked printing plate will contact the impression cylinder. When the next and subsequent sheets enter the press, they receive both the intended printing on the correct side and an impression on the opposite side from the ink left on the cylinder. 1977A offset 1 dollar- back.jpg

    It’s been a really long time since I made any new acquisitions but stumbled across this 1863 Fractional Note with two U.S. Generals Sherman and Grant on it that I’d never seen before and had to add it to the collection.


    Did a little research and found out that only three people were ever depicted on fractional currency during their lifetime: Francis E. Spinner (Treasurer), William Fessenden (a Senator and Secretary of the Treasury), and Spencer Clark (Superintendent of the National Currency Bureau) but when Spinner and Clark decided to have their portrait depicted on currency and it was suggested that the Treasury's privilege of portrait selection for currency was being abused.

    So, in 1866 Congress enacted legislation specifically stating "that no portrait or likeness of any living person hereafter engraved, shall be placed upon any of the bonds, securities, notes, fractional or postal currency of the United States.” and on the date of passage, the plates for this 15-cent note depicting Sherman and Grant had not been completed and fell under the scope of the new law and were never issued. So, the Sherman-Grant note only exists as a specimen and doesn’t have anything on the reverse.

    Too bad because I think it’s such a cool note :)

    It is a cool note. My favorite Fractionals are from the Third issue and newer. The notes with the signatures.

    Unfortunately, my scanner is having issues so have to show these the old-fashioned way. Got a few new Indian notes.


    A current 200 Rupees for my series set.

    And a couple star note 10 Rupees, both of which will also make their way into the series set.

    Hey people i am just new on this forum and i have a couple of questions and would like to make a forum with them but i just don't know how so i ask it in here if i don't bother anybody. İ have a collection of papermoney with some confederate state notes and some other old notes. Now i noticed some mold stains on the back of one of the bills and i would like to know if there is a way to renove the mold and preserve them in a nice way. Thank you.

    The best way to get an answer to your question/s is by starting your own thread. Coat tailing on someone else's thread will not garner the responses you deserve and it is considered bad etiquette.

    You need to go to the Forums page. Select the category that most represents the topic you're inquiring about. In that topic, at the top of the page it'll have a 'button' that reads New Post. Select that and post your new thread.

    BTW, welcome to CT.

    Hmmm, not a new acquisition, but brought a smile when I saw this note in the Heritage auctions and just had to "borrow" the vignette, since it matched one from a Russian note. Imagine that: an Ecuador note having same vignette as a Russian credit note from 1918? and an ABNCo vignette to boot. ecuador_pick91s1_5Sucres_1945_00000_specimen.jpg russia_creditnotes_1918_pick40a_face.jpg

    Sure would like to know history of that particular vignette.
    Oh, the Russian note is mine.
