On this holiday week, John and Nancy Wilson were kind enough to share with us images of their marvelous collection of Santa Claus obsolete banknotes. The Wilson also forwarded this link to a web site about St. Nicholas: www.stnicholascenter.org
Many thanks, and Merry Christmas to all!
A rare Santa note that was purchased in the Christie's sale of the ABNCo archives in 1990. It also has a Lazy Deuce across the middle.
Only three of these are in existence, with one on a sheet. Low grade but very rare.
A Santa from Rhode Island
A scarce Milwaukee note with a vignette of Felix O. C. Darley's Santa at Bedside vignette. Only three notes are known with one in Krause, one in Durand and one in Wilson - collections
Another Santa Claus vignetted note.
Another Santa note from the 1990 archive sale.
Here is the actual steel engraved plate for this Santa Certificate that we purchased from the ANR sale a few years ago. it was also used by the ABNCo for a souvenir card some years back.
