Certified Proofs of Mississippi (Box 2)
About the Project
In the 19th and 20th century, national banks of Mississippi in cities like Shaw and McComb City issued currency, but only 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.
