    Description

    Historic American Currency Sterling Silver Banknote Series ABNCo-International Silver Company Joint Issue Complete Set of Six Designs Issued 1973-76 Not Graded.
    This is set 2337 from a maximum issuance of 7,500 sets. It is doubtful that anywhere near this number was ever achieved in sales. This is also the first complete set of this joint offering to be a part of our auctions. Six designs of Obsolete notes are utilized in which an ABNCo Proprietary Proof is paired with a sterling silver rendition of the note. Each pair resides in a handsome boxed book slipcase with a different informational booklet. The six Proprietary Proofs are printed on 8.5 by 4.25 inch card stock from the original steel engraved plates by the ABNCo and there are also six sterling silver "panels" stamped with the same banknote designs. The silver "panels" are "inked" so that the engraved image stands out. Each silver "panel" is .75 mm thick, measures 8 by 3.75 inches and contains exactly five troy ounces of .925 fine sterling silver. There is close to $790 in silver in this lot as of this writing. All items are imprinted with the "ABC" monogram and all in this set have the matching serial number of 2337. The six designs in this set in issuance order are, Providence, RI- Liberty Bank $100 circa 1858, vignette of Cornwallis surrendering at Yorktown; Charleston, SC- Bank of Charleston $50 circa 1838, vignette of British naval bombardment of Fort Moultrie; Omaha City, Nebraska Territory- Omaha and Chicago Bank $5 circa 1857, vignette of the Battle of Lexington; Wilmington, NC- Commercial Bank $100 circa 1850, vignettes are of sailors and an American sailing ship; China, ME- Canton Bank $2 circa 1855, signing of the Declaration of Independence vignette and a decollete maiden portrait; and Washington, NC- Bank of Washington $4 circa 1860, with portraits of Martha and George Washington. These items are not graded, but are as issued, with the Proprietary Proofs slipped behind a clear "window" and the silver "panels" sealed in a plastic covering. Item count is six due to the six book slipcases. (Total: 6 items)
