NARAMORE PHOTOGRAPH SHEET INFORMATION SOUGHT

A gentleman from London writes: "I have a sheet of photographs of
National Currency notes, nine in total ($1,2,5,10,20.50,100,500,&
1000 denominations) that I beleive are discussed in the Narramore
forgeries book.  Are you familiar with the book enough to know
if my group is a full set? I bought these as photographic rarities
but would be most interested to find out more about the whole
concept and how these came about.  Many thanks for your time and
attention regarding this request."

[I am only somewhat familiar with these  Naramore produced the
photos in several formats  individual cards, sheets, etc.  In
2005 we had a short E-Sylum item about a boxed set of the photos
offered by Stacks:

NARAMORE CARDS IN ORIGINAL BOX OFFERED

The item noted Ralph Ellenbogen's article "The Celebrated Naramore
Bank Note Detector Cards" in the Jan/Feb 1997 issue of Paper Money,
the official publication of the Society of Paper Money Collectors.
Can anyone tell us more about the Naramore sheets?

NOTE: I didn't have a ready answer when I first responded, and
offered to write his query up for The E-Sylum.  Apparently he wasn't
quite so interested in its history as he's already resold the sheet.
But it's an interesting topic nevertheless.  -Editor]
