Dave Bowers and Whitman Publishing have been working for some time on The Whitman Encyclopedia of United States Paper Money. The E-Sylum community has an opportunity to help bring this project to completion. Below author Dave Bowers lists a number of items he needs images of for the book. -Editor
From the publisher:
The Whitman Encyclopedia of United States Paper Money is a comprehensive study from Continental Currency to modern-day notes. Dave Bowers has been working with experts throughout the field to update old research, scrutinize long-established "facts" of conventional wisdom, gather print-quantity data never before compiled in one major source, and provide market values, including in multiple Uncirculated grades. The book isn't just a technical guide for specialists and a market guide for collectors and dealers; it also captures the romance and history of U.S. paper money as only Q. David Bowers can.
Dave Bowers writes:
Here is my want list for pictures needed for the new Whitman Encyclopedia of United States Paper Money. Proofs are fine for rarities, etc., and in some instances are the only form available.
This list has a lot of esoterica among the higher denominations, but there are quite a few 20th century small-size I can use. Need color scans 400 dpi to 1200 dpi. Can receive at my private e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if no more than 2MB per transmission (separate transmissions are fine), or on a CD (will reimburse postage): Dave Bowers, Box 539, Wolfeboro Falls, NH 03896.
Dave's list turned out to be too lengthy for publication here in The E-Sylum. If you think you might be able to help, contact Dave or me by email and we'll forward the list.
