a visit to water at the blue earth

As has been the case for the past few articles, this one also is inspired by a recent purchase and addition to my collection of national bank notes. Accordingly, we will visit rural Saguache County, Colorado, and the town of Saguache itself. Saguache is the county seat of the eponymous county, and is the Northern Gateway to the San Luis Valley. It is a rural and agricultural community located at the junction of US Route 285 and State Route 114. It has a current population of around 500, and is sandwiched between the Sangre de Cristo mountain range to the east and the San Juans to the west. The name of the town comes from a Ute word meaning “water at the blue earth.” Saguache Creek flows just outside of the…

number 1 porthole comes in

The biggest large-size type note sensation at the American Numismatic Association World’s Fair of Money show at Rosemont, Ill., in August was the appearance of the number 1 Lincoln porthole $5 silver certificate. This important note, a Fr. 282, came in as the crown jewel in a large accumulation of large size notes marketed by the grandson of the person who acquired them. The porthole note was quickly snatched up. Whenever a previously unreported number 1 type note comes onto the market, it is big news and cause for celebration (more so if it is from an issue that has a story), and the Fr. 282 has a story! The Series of $5 1923 silver certificates comprised a short-lived issue that was in production for only a little over a year and…

reader’s showcase

Brett Irick sent this pair of notes that he assembled from Gilead, Ohio, (his birthplace). Both are the only reported notes respectively from the Granite Bank and The First National Bank. The 25-cent scrip dated November 25, 1862, predates by 27 years the $5 brown back, which was printed in 1889. What is spectacular is that the Granite Bank was nationalized as the First National in 1864. James M. Briggs was the first president of the bank and is listed as such in the 1864 annual report of the Comptroller of the Currency, then reappears again as president in the 1867 through 1879 reports. His signature is on the signature line on the 25-cent note. Richard J. House, who countersigned the 25-cent piece vertically under the obligation “Payable in Bank…

proof of the month

Once in a while, we find a proof of an incomplete plate, and they are often revealing. Sandwiched between an Original Series note on the bottom and a Series of 1875 note on the top is a proof lifted from the plate after the Colby-Spinner combination had been burnished from the plate but before the Allison-Gilfillan combination had been rolled in as the BEP was altering the Original Series bank note company plate into a Series of 1875. This trio reveals what a messy job this could be and what a pain it was to get the plate back into serviceable condition. Notice how the leading “S” in Spinner’s signatures lapped onto the ornate “1.” Colby’s signature lapped over the floral embellishments under his leading initials. To get at these…

food stamps and coupons 1939-2009

The Great Depression began in late 1929 and lasted until the entry of the United States into World War II. During those years there were better times and worse times. One of the hardest was in 1937 during the severe business downturn. I’ve wondered if this difficulty was the catalyst that provided the incentive for Congress to enact the Food Stamp Plan in August of 1939. It was decided to have eligible participants purchase for face value a specified amount of what were termed Food Orders; these were rectangular stamps of 25 cents that came in small booklets of various denomination totals. All purchased stamps were orange in color. The benefit to those who purchased these orange stamps came in the form of half the face value of the orange stamps…
