Certified Proofs of New Jersey (Box 8)
About the Project
In places like Montclair, New Jersey, national banks were able to issue currency after certification by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. The practice continued from the 19th and into the 20th centuries, allowing the BEP to ensure accuracy in intaglio printing plates before they were 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.
