I have one of those too. Gorgeous note. I bet Roland has a catalog number for it. 😁

Hmm. I did not know there were catalog numbers for this sort of item.
Please enlighten me. What resource would list these?

If you go all the way back to my first post you'll see the reference to a test note catalog.

Here's one of my favorite promotional notes for the New England Bank Note Company.  The firm is not an easy collect, 11 notes total, 6 valued at over $1000, including this one.  It looks like an essay of an existing note.  Can anyone spot the reason it's not?

Does it have something to do with "New Brunswick" at the bottom? That seems inconsistent with the rest of the locations.

Good eye, Greg!  With two locations in two countries, it has to be a printer's sample, not an essay.  The Charlestown Bank is in NEBNC's home of Boston while New Bedford is in New Brunswick, Canada.

So here's my final post of promotional bank note pics from the ANA show. These seemed more appropriate for this particular thread. Beautiful items but, of course, too pricey for my pocketbook. I did enjoy looking them over!

Hmm, that's weird. The other three images seem to be corrupted. Let me try again.

The red artifact in the first one appears to be part of a label that is attached.

I love notes shown on broadsides.  The Toppan note had to be produced between 1834 when he formed his company and 1837 when he merged to form Draper, Toppan, Longacre & Company.  Pricey at $1000.

The Beazel / Continental Bank Note Company sheet is from the book “United States Counterfeit Detector: Rules for Detecting Counterfeit "Greenbacks" And National Bank Notes, Making the Geometric Lathe-Work, Ruling ... on All Government Paper".  This one is subject to modern reprints for those interested.  The ones I've seen have either black or red serial numbers flanking the "5000".  A bit of a mystery!

NOW, the John A. Lowell Bank Note piece!  There are only 3 attributed pieces for this firm, one with 2 varieties also with Continental Bank Note Company, an 1824 New Year piece, and a 23 piece color chart featuring George Washington.  This NEW find appears to be a calendar header with the string at top center to mount on a wall.  I am going to attribute this piece as a probable calendar head.  By the way, the address differs from the known 369 Congress Street.

What a great bunch of educational work you've accomplished at the show.  I certainly thank you for the time recording your finds.

It was a lot of fun tracking these down! The Toppan broadsheet was being offered for $1200, I believe, so I think you are on the mark. Didn't get prices on the others. This kind of material is obviously of interest to me, so I will continue to post things as I find them.
