Roland Rollins has published an updated edition of his book on banknote company promotional sheets and test notes.
The Catalog of Printers Promotional Sheets & Test Notes – 18th Edition was released June 2023.
The eBook catalog covers all test, advertising, promotional, color samples, house notes, titled vignette sheets, stock samples, greeting cards, and calendars for firms involved in the production of bank notes.
The catalog is available on Adobe Acrobat pdf file - 120 MB! With 1,292 pages and 7,249 color images, the cost to print the book would be prohibitive. Since it is a pdf, I've added bookmarks for all 285 firms known to have issued test notes. Of course the search feature makes it easy to look up a note by theme or security feature, such as Lord Nelson or Pushkin theme or Spark or Motion security feature. There are 3,479 test notes attributed with 6,031 varieties.
The book is available on Ebay and Delcampe for $45 + $4.50 shipping for domestic orders or $42.50 +$4.50 shipping at my web site here:
