VIGNETTE BOOK DISMEMBERED
In another form of recycling, the same issue of Bank Note Reporter also carries a full-page ad from Arri Jacob, a California currency dealer, selling "Rare Proof Vignettes Found on U.S. Currency! All vignettes are the same as found on U.S. currency. These vignettes came from a rare presentation book the Bureau of Engraving and Printing made during the late 1860's to mid 1870's. There are less than 50 of these vignette books known." Well, it looks like now the population is "less than 49." Wait…
was that the sound of a bibliophile turning in his grave…?
