I've gotten used to seeing this seller cut down the early BEP souvenir cards in order to market the currency reprints, but I have to say, this example bothers me. This time he has trimmed down vignettes from B-275, B-299, and B-301. All these cards have low issue numbers and cutting them up will make it more difficult for future collectors to find them. Marketing these as "proof prints" is especially deceptive, as they are not proofs in any way.

Obviously there is no way to shut down disreputable dealers like this, except to starve them of uneducated customers. Which is the purpose of this forum and the SCCS website.

Beautiful vignettes! Thanks for posting. The cut downs are very unfortunate, someone gets taken to the cleaners and they’re potentially out of the hobby forever.

I agree, this seller has posted a few things here and there that I would like to have, but I never buy anything from them.  Sickening to see them cut those cards down and then try to pawn them off as "proofs".
Come see a forgotten piece of history...

Apparently, there is a new dealer on the chop shop scene. This one is in Canada. Most of his vignettes appear to be cut from "The Story of the American Bank note Company" and sheets from the American Bank Note Archive Series.
