19TH CENTURY COUNTERFEIT DETECTION & PREVENTION LITERATURE

16 - Bank Note Reporter - Tracy - 1881 While working on last week's E-Sylum I watched a video of Michael Sullivan's presentation on 19th Century Counterfeit Detection & Prevention Literature, given at the 2012 Memphis Paper Money Show. It's a well-organized and illustrated talk, which was accompanied by a multi-case exhibit of examples from Michael's extensive numismatic library. The exhibit won the Mike Crabb award given by the Memphis paper Money Club.

The video was produced by David Lisot and is available thru the www.cointelevision.com site. Many thanks to Michael for sending it and providing the accompanying images for The E-Sylum. At right is an 1881 Tracy's Counterfeit Detector.

The below receipt indicates the existence of a PRESBURY & CO. Counterfeit Detector, but according to Michael Sullivan he's been unable to locate of identify an extant example in over twenty years of collecting.
