Okay, let's throw three maritime vignettes out there and test your matching skills! Honestly, I'm not sure about a couple of these, but we shall see...

The first one is on the $500 national note of which there are not many examples:

The next two are more difficult. I was actually able to find The Launch of the Boat vignette on one of mine:

I found some information on possibilities for the Marine View but no images.

Nice job on the $500 Bernie! I found two usages from Marine View. The two ships were cropped into circles for a couple scarce taxpaid revenue stamps for Manufactured Tobacco. Sorry, I couldn't find high res images.

But I have nada on the last one.

Good job Berny. I couldn’t find anything.

A few more. Match the vignettes. Hint...all are US Federal notes. No obsoletes. The first two eagles appear on different notes but same denominations. Slightly different colors. Good luck.

The Eagle vignettes appear on two different US large size Compound Interest Bearing notes ?

Those are amazing notes, Franklin -- you rarely see them. Thanks for posting! The Jackass eagle also appears on an early souvenir card, B-2, which lists some other currency uses.

The other eagle shows up on the back of an 1878 $10,000 U.S. Note, which is so rare I couldn't find an image. But it also appears on a souvenir card (B-81):

I will leave Salmon Chase for someone else.

OK, I will try the wonderful vignette entitled "Western River" first:

PA-10-G20a and b: The green tint seems to be relatively common.

And a cropped version:

I figured the ladies in the clouds would be an easy one. I'll give it another day or so.

Ladies in the clouds...tough one. What’s the answer ? Thanks.

Well, I thought I knew ... but when I went to post a match, I realized the vignette was different. So I'm embarrassed to say I can't provide an answer yet. I know I've seen it used, but I'll have to do some further searching. Whoops! [eek]

Only one out of three from that batch - yikes, our average is dropping. I will keep hunting for those myself.

In the meantime, we'll go back to some Bureau engravings that might be a little easier. Let's try some portraits...

Love the Farragut portrait. I've seen this picture--with the missing button--and some others of him without the missing button. I've never been able to figure out why it is missing. 
I even stopped into the USNA Museum (Prebble Hall) one day to ask the docents. They looked at several photos on display and were just as puzzled.

Nice post Deli. Good stuff. My best guess for the others ?:

Franklin- 1874- 1880 $50 Legal Tender.
Hamilton- 1869 - 1880 $20 Legal Tender
Webster - 1869 - 1880 $10 Legal Tender

Thanks. Post yours...

Good job, Mike! The Franklin portrait also was used on a Post Office draft, that's featured on a souvenir card:

[B-301] 

Delistamps, I also have that Navy paymaster check with the Farragut portrait. I've never seen a portrait with all the buttons -- if you have a scan I'd love to see it.

I'm back on the grid today, after a scenic road trip. That is a great vignette, Roland! I haven't seen that one before. Pretty certain it would have been used on a stock or bond -- I'll see if I can find an example.

Guess no one got this one!  Netherlands Antilles 2 1/2 Gulden, 1955 & 1964, P-A1a & P-A1b.

You stumped us! That's a new one for me. I might have to put that on my list.
