NumismaTalks – Works of Art: Large Sized Silver Certificates

The large size notes produced by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) in the late 1800s exemplified excellence in engraving. This is especially demonstrated in the Silver Certificates produced from 1878 to 1899 which many have deemed the most beautiful notes produced by the BEP. This presentation traces the historical background of these notes and their evolution. We take a look the individual designs and the engravers that created them. There will be a short discussion on the value of these notes. Finally, I’ll talk about my collection and what’s next on my radar.
