Certified Proofs of Colorado (Box 3)
About the Project
Where did residents of Colorado do their banking in the 19th and 20th centuries? Banks in Fowler, Silverton, and Wellington provided national currency after receiving certified approval awarded by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. This project consists of certified proofs: a printing from every intaglio printing plate so the plate could be proofed as perfect before the plate was put into production. Join us in transcribing this project to create records for each proof sheet and expand the rich data in our collections.
