The Currency Proof Club's Online National Bank Note Research Project is ready to launch!
Chris Steenerson submitted this press release about his new resource for National Bank Note Research. Thanks.
"Exploring The Certified Currency Plate Proofs" is a reference work indexing the National Bank Note plate proofs by state, bank charter, date period and denomination. The set of handbooks currently consists of 50,945 face and back proofs, divided into 333 volumes, in PDF format, with more coming soon to eventually total 400+ titles.
Charter Patron subscribers receive early access to the new titles and revisions as they become available. Charter Patrons receive links to the finished "alpha" release versions. We hope to move up the release timeline based on Patron and advertiser support! Charter Patrons also have the option to send a thumb drive (with a SASE) to be loaded up with the larger sets to avoid downloading delays.
There are currently 333 National Bank Note plate proof titles posted at www.CurrencyProofs.com. They are beta samples for testing and feedback. They contain about 20% of the images in the full set of handbooks, currently consisting of 50,945 face and back proofs, divided into 333 volumes. Their total size is 3Gb. The first full set totals 13Gb. SET 2.0 is estimated to reach ~37Gb. SET 3.0 in higher resolution should climb to ~65Gb. SET 4.0 will probably weigh in at ~120Gb. There are also many new titles planned for 2021 and beyond. Higher resolution images result in higher Gb files. Add Levels 2, 3, and 4 (details at www.CurrencyProofs.com) and lock in the low Launch rates!

About the National Bank Note eBook collection:
The series provides a visual tour through the National Bank Note plate proofs held in the National Numismatic Collection at the National Museum of American History. These large size notes were issued from 1863 to 1929 by thousands of banks throughout the country and territories, in various denominations, during three Charter Periods. It was the most extensive series of paper money produced by the United States. The reference set also has 330 tables on 475 pages with over 116,500 words. The 4-500 completed titles, as planned, will include Overviews, Indexes and Close-ups by Denomination.
