Hi:
I am a stamp dealer/collector who came across this in an auction lot I just bought. A fellow in another forum told me to post it here as you guys are the experts in this stuff.
The book has a total of 37 specimen notes all in mint condition. See the scans.

I'm trying to find out what it is worth and the best way to dispose of it without paying crazy
consignment fees etc.  or maybe I'll just hang on to it.

Whatever I can find out is deeply appreciated.

Thanks

Mike

Here is an online link regarding these certificates: https://fraser.stlouisfed.org/files/docs/publications/books/cannon_clearing_house_loans_1910.pdf.

Copy and paste the link into your browser.

I don't know what they are worth, but since all the certificates are marked "specimen," it is likely a book distributed by Western Bank Note Co. to other depression scrip issuers, banks, and financial institutions to provide comparison samples of the certificates it produced to prevent counterfeiting.

I see your thread on the main forum probably answered most of your questions about these. I was curious about how they are affixed to the pages. Can you thumb through each set? How about a couple shots of the highest denominations?
