I'm trying to identify items engraved by Edward Grove during his time with Security Bank Note Co. of Philadelphia (1947-1962). The company later merged to become Security-Columbian BNC.

Does anyone know of a resource that lists the stamps and currency printed by Security?

This is a tough one. Even the philatelic articles on him picture only his banknotes, medals, and US stamps.
I have Gene Hessler's "The International Engraver's Line," and Grove does not even have an entry.
I shall continue this quest.

Grove was American, so he is listed in Hessler's original "The Engraver's Line" but it's a relatively short entry.

Thanks for your help!

That makes sense. I was thinking international stamps.
