    Description

    Money - A Treatise on Counterfeit, Altered, and Spurious Bank Notes with Unerring Rules for the Detection of Frauds in the Same Illustrated with Original Steel, Copper, and Wood Plate Engravings Prepared Expressly for this Work. Together with A History of Ancient Money, Continental Currency, Banks, Banking, Bank of England, Our American Bank Note Companies, and Other Valuable Information as to Money, By E(dwin) J. Wilber and E(dward) P(orter) Eastman, 1865, Poughkeepsie, NY, 71 pages, Four Engraved Plates, Illustrated.
    A rival of Heath in this field of endeavor. The last 20 pages consist of a reprint of the educational "Making Money" article that originally appeared in a Harper's New Monthly Magazine during the early 1860s. It discusses the ABNCo and illustrates what would later become Fr. 93 and the, unknown in issued form, Fr. 208. This item is not graded. It has its original gold stamped cloth, tight binding, frontis engraved plate of Poughkeepsie, cover edges worn, and wear shown on the spine. We also see that Plate 1 was taped at the spine. Also, the blank back of Plate I was once used to display stamps. There are also ink stamps, writing, and a book plate of a previous owner on the inside cover and front flyleaf. Another ink stamp of a previous owner is on page 51, and the "Contents" page has a "Hinckley Family Knitters" seal glued in. Nonetheless, it is a very desirable copy that contains a wealth of information for the serious collector.
