STAMPS ON PAPER MONEY

$50 with star stamp closeup Web site visitor Adamandia Kapsalis writes:

I saw your article, STAR STAMPS ON PAPER MONEY: MODERN CHOP MARKS. I have been collecting photos of a variety of stamp marks on the money I deposit for the place I work at. Do you know of any book listing the sources of these stamps?

I replied:

No, Iím not aware of any book or web site with information on the sources of these. Many will never be known, although Iím sure there are a number that could be traced. If you have a lot of photos, they would be a great start for a web site. Maybe people who have information will find your site and contact you.

As it turns out, Adamandia has an album of her photos on Facebook. Here are a few.

Stamps on Paper money

Adamandia adds:

I found one with Hello Kitty as the image. Seems odd for a government or a bank to use that for their authentication mark.

"Chopmarks" like these are made by private merchants and individuals, so I guess Hello Kitty is as likely as any other stamp. But not all stamps are chopmarks to indicate authenticity. Some stamps are just there for the fun of it.
