CSNS NATIONAL BANK NOTE EDUCATIONAL SEMINAR REPORT

Cliff Mishler writes: "The Central States Numismatic Society on
Thursday, August 3, sponsored its first ever free-standing one-day
educational seminar, the subject of which was the development and
collecting of the National Bank Note currency series, which was
hosted at the Higgins Museum of National Bank Notes in Okoboji,
Iowa. The event commanded the participation of roughly 25 collectors
and dealers from around the country, with 13 states represented.
The featured speakers were Peter Huntoon from Boulder, Nevada; Mark
Hotz from Baltimore, Maryland; and Wendell Wolka from Indianapolis,
Indiana, who served as moderator for the event.

In his several presentations, Huntoon explored the political and
economic development of National Bank Note issuance, with a focus
on simplifying the many complex and overlapping ingredients involved.
Keying his presentations to collecting options, Hotz offered up a
variety of approaches to "what you can do" in pursuit of National
Bank Notes, including a presentation devoted to the intrigue of a
City National Bank of Taylor, Texas, series 1929 $10 note, a blood
stained note believed to have been among the roll of currency carried
by Clyde Barrow at the time of the famous Bonnie & Clyde ambush of
March, 1934. In his pair of presentations, Wolka explored the 60
years of state chartered and independent banking history in Ohio
preceding and transitioning into the National Bank Note era.

This event was organized under the direction of Ray Lockwood of
Marion, Indiana, chairman of the CSNS Educational Committee, with
on-site coordination handled by board member Jim Moores of Liberty,
Missouri, who stood in for Lockwood, who was recovering from surgery
and unable to be in attendance. The participants were welcomed to
the event by CSNS president Bill Brandimore from Wausau, Wisconsin,
and Higgins Museum treasurer Rick Hickman, son of the late National
Bank Note collecting enthusiast and authority John Hickman, who
offered an overview of the founding and growth of the museum.

Future CSNS sponsored one-day free-standing seminars are in the
planning stages. The second such event is projected for this coming
June in Indianapolis, with the program still under development.
Information concerning this and other future events may be obtained
by writing to Lockwood at 2075 East Bocock Road, Marion, IN 46952-8799.
