Certified Proofs of Pennsylvania (Box 24)

About the Project

In Athens and other boroughs in Pennsylvania, a proofing process allowed national banks to issue currency certified by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing through proofs. 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.
