I have all of the bank note issues, because they were bankers. but I just sent it off to be certified so I'll let you know in a week or few. Thank you stude.
Smart move on your part if you really can't tell.
But by your diction here you provide another example of what appears to be a misunderstanding. Do you know why the Bank Note Issues were given that appellation? [Hint: it has nothing to do with banking per se
They are called that because, in distinction from all the other US issues of the 19th century, they were designed and printed by security printing companies which contained the words "Bank Note Company" in the common form of their name. National; Continental; and American - Bank Note Company.
Calling them "Bank Note" Companies had nothing to do with their involvement in banking. Such companies came to be called that in the days before we had a national currency; mainly the first half of the nineteenth century. Before national currency, Americans traded in local currencies which were issued and backed by local banks and similar institutions of monetary trade. Those banks went to security printers to produce the actual bank notes; hence, bank note companies.
Today, people who collect the "broken-bank notes" produced at that time, now without fiduciary value, refer to it by the term "Obsolete Currency." Since you come from a family of bankers I would not be surprised if you have encountered a fair sampling of that. But among stamps the Bank Note Issues have nothing to do with banking. Indeed, I have some low denomination Bank Note Issues which were used on personal and corporate checks to pay the tax on written checks at the time. In the US that was an illegal use of postage stamps at that time, which shows you how far removed from banking these issues are.
