Certified Proofs of New York (Box 25)
About the Project
From the nineteenth into the twentieth centuries, in Freeport, NY, national banks issued currency to patrons. 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.
