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 and related financial instruments used in the Commonwealth. Eric Schena will author the new work and is planning on covering the following types of notes:
     

State Treasury Notes
County & Municipal notes
Obsolete bank 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 We are looking for any notes that have not been catalogued in the 1991 Jones & Littlefield catalog or are unpublished in any similar works. One particular challenge will be scope of notes issued in what is now West Virginia. All pre-1863 notes will be included; however, because of the close relationship between the two states there is considerable cross-over appeal. Consequently, some of the later nineteenth century notes will be evaluated for inclusion, so unlisted WV should also be sent.  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.

 

Cheers,
Eric
