Long gone are the days were the Artwork on our countries currency was the means of counterfeit protection. The artwork in obsolete notes tells the tale of America's growth and development. Each chapter identifies the picturesque changes in our currency and our country using symbolic images. From the disputes with the natives, forced labour, the women of currency as Temptress, Saint, and Helpmeet, Childhood and Family, Making a Living, Whimsy and images of worth and trust are amazing. This book's large color graphic format illustrates these notes like never before. You do not even need to be a collector of currency to appreciate the work Richard Doty senior curator of the Smithsonian's National Numismatic Collection has compiled to create this title.
