Did you try to sing the tune on the note?
Arthur guessed the tune, and that makes for a great QUICK QUIZ. There are actually two musical notes illustrated in Doty's book, and here they are. So... who can Name Those Tunes? Also - is anyone aware of other scrip notes or banknotes with similar musical notation? Not just notation that is only there for decoration, but actually represents a tune. What about on coins, tokens or medals? There are many numismatic items honoring famous musicians, but how many of them actually "carry a tune"? -Editor
