OBSOLETE CURRENCY 

   Reminiscent of our recent discussions on numismatic terms 
   is a very lengthy Letter to the Editor of Bank Note Reporter 
   by E-Sylum subscriber Bob Cochran in response to a 
   columnist's statement that "obsolete currency" is a "fancy 
   term for broken bank notes". 

   Cochran states that "it is quite clear that "obsolete currency" 
   is the correct term for the entire group of banknotes issued 
   between 1781 and 1866".  He backs up his point with 
   quotes from the journal of the Society of Paper Money 
   Collectors, letters by D. C. Wismer, and a passage from 
   William Dillistin's "Bank Note Reporters and Counterfeit 
   Detectors 1826-1866".
