ANA INVENTORIES AND RECATALOGS THE BEBEE U.S. PAPER MONEY COLLECTIONAlso in the September 2008 issue of The Numismatist from the American Numismatic Association is a column by Douglas Mudd, Curator of the ANA's Edward C. Rochette Money Museum. The column describes the current effort to review and recatalog the museum's holdings of U.S. paper money donated by dealers Aubrey and Adeline Bebee. The collection, donated in 1988, includes over 900 individual notes and uncut sheets. Mark Hays, a museum volunteer since 2000 has been making images of the notes for the collection inventory and updating or correcting catalog entries. The images will also become available online someday.
In the future, keep an eye out for a new virtual exhibit of the Bebee Collection. All 900-plus notes eventually will be made available for viewing on the ANA website.
As a preview, Doug forwarded images of some Bebee notes that are going to appear in the ANA's upcoming Civil War exhibit. They're beauties!
