Certified Proofs of Louisiana Box 2
About the Project
Leg it in Lafayette as you transcribe these proofs from New Orleans and beyond - in cities around Louisiana, currency was issued from national banks after certification by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. These proofs allowed the BEP to ensure accuracy in intaglio printing plates before currency was printed. Learn how to transcribe this project here. Together, we'll create records for each proof sheet and expand the rich data in our collections.
