Certified Proofs of New York (Box 24)
About the Project
From the nineteenth into the twentieth centuries, in Long Island City, national banks issued currency to patrons, once that currency was certified by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing through proofs. The practice allowed 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.
