American Bank Note Company (ABNCo) B.A. Fahnestock’s Plate

B.A. Fahnestock is known for one of the era’s pervasive cure-alls known as “B. A. Fahnestock’s Celebrated Vermifuge.” The bottom of the vignette states that it was designed and engraved by Rowdon, Wright, Hatch & Edson, which by 1858 had merged with seven other companies to form the American Bank Note Company. The top of the vignette states that it was produced in 1849. This may have been made as part of a label for any number of products and the portrait in upper center is likely that of Fahnestock. The steel plate is approximately 8 x 6-1/4 inches with many roughed out markings on the reverse. It includes the original paper envelope with V42141 written in bold, red ink as well as other markings in pencil and red ink. An image of the plate as it might produce an image (not included in this sale) is shown at bottom.
