HELP WANTED FOR VIRGINIA PAPER MONEY PROJECT

 

Following the success of the publication on Virginia tokens, the VNA is planning to produce a book on Virginia obsolete paper money. The book will cover all forms of paper money except bank notes, which will be included in the upcoming Volume 8 of the Whitman Encyclopedia of Obsolete Paper Money. Eric Schena will author the new work and is planning on covering the following types of notes:

* State Treasury Notes
* County & Municipal notes
* Privately issued notes
* Transportation notes (excluding coupons and similarly related tokens)
* Panic & Depression Scrip
* Advertising notes
* Business school notes
* Mining notes (excluding coupon books or similarly related tokens)

To make this project as comprehensive as possible, we need your help! We are looking for any notes that have not been catalogued in the 1991 Jones & Littlefield catalog or are unpublished in any similar works. In addition, we will also need good color scans or photographs of notes to include. Illustration and contributor credit will be given where applicable. If you would like to assist in this project and contribute illustrations and listings, please contact Eric at eschena@hotmail.com for more details.

I have already started doing a mock-up of how it would look (in fact I have all the currently known panic and depression scrip catalogued), but it is still going to be quite a bit of time to do.
