Visit to the Smithsonian (December, 2012)

Every trip to the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian contains fantastic surprises. We were able to finish scanning the Small Size Type from the Treasury Collection, which will appear in the Spring of 2013 (Part II of the Treasury Highlights Exhibit).

While looking at some boxes from the Chase Manhattan Bank Collection, one label stood out, “Checks – Famous People.” We scanned a small handful of these checks/drafts signed by the people depicted on U.S. Bank Notes and who are featured in the “Portraits on U.S. Bank Notes” Exhibit http://nationalcurrencyfoundation.org/portraitgallery.html

Almost half of the bios in the exhibit now have an image of a signed check or draft.
