Here's a good start price on a 22 color sample book from United States Bank Note Corporation.  The vignette of a girl has S. C. B. Co. at bottom right (Security-Columbian Bank Note Co.)  Each sample is 88x170 mm and catalogs in The Catalog of Printers Test Notes for $40 each.

I will have these for sale individually as soon as they arrive... I already owned a booklet, but since no-one bid on it, I bought it for under opening bid price of $25.  The last two sales of the booklet sold for north of $200.  I can scan each note by busting the book up, then sell individually.  Even if I offer these at a spectacular price of $20 each, they will sell for $440 total.  Cringe!  I can't believe I'm doing this.  Anyone want the booklet before I ruin it?

I received this book earlier in the week, but now that I'm off jury duty I picked it up today.  It is not identical to the one in my collection, but really close.

The cursive version has a shiny leatherette surface while the other is linen-like (normal hard back books?)
All the color charts are the same colors, though there is a difference of font from one to the next.

I totally missed this thread while I was away. I would have been all over that book for that price. That works out to just over $1 per page!

My bad, there are 27 pages!  So I came in for under $1 each.  I let this one go for no sales, since I already had one. I then made an offer for opening price - shipping which was accepted.  You snooze, you lose folks!
