Many areas are covered with an emphasis on pre-production, production of, and uses for United States coins and currency.

Five Hundred Thousand Dollar Currency Strap For $5,000 Gold Certificates

Five Hundred Thousand Dollar Currency Strap For $5,000 Gold Certificates

The five-thousand dollar denomination was never a commonly printed bill within the United States Bureau of Engraving and Printing. In fact, the denomination as a gold certificate was only printed over the course of five series of notes, which include the dates of 1865, 1870, 1882 and 1888 for large size notes and 1928 for small size notes. This strap uses a typeface consistent with those used in the latter portion of the 1800s and would have been wrapped around one hundred of these gold certificates. The strap itself is decorated with a pair of double boxes containing a repeating petal-type motif.

One Million Dollar Currency Strap For $10,000 Notes

One Million Dollar Currency Strap For $10,000 Notes

Over the years there were various types of ten-thousand dollar notes produced by the United States Bureau of Engraving and Printing. These include large size notes from the legal tender, Federal Reserve and gold certificate series as well as small size notes from the Federal Reserve and gold certificate series. The typeface is consistent with usage in the late nineteenth century, but is not conclusive for that time period. The strap itself is decorated with a pair of double boxes containing a repeating petal-type motif.

One Million Dollar Currency Strap For $10,000 Notes Dated February 29, 1904

One Million Dollar Currency Strap For $10,000 Notes Dated February 29, 1904

Over the years there were various types of ten-thousand dollar notes produced by the United States Bureau of Engraving and Printing. These include large size notes from the legal tender, Federal Reserve and gold certificate series as well as small size notes from the Federal Reserve and gold certificate series. The typeface is consistent with usage in the late nineteenth century, but is not conclusive for that time period. However, the date stamped on the strap indicates that the currency within would have had to have been the 1878 legal tender issue or any one of the six gold certificate issues. Given the fact that the strap is not listed as containing gold certificates, it might be assumed that it was used for the 1878 legal tender issue featuring Andrew Jackson. It is believed that all notes of this issue have been redeemed. The strap itself is decorated with a pair of double boxes containing a repeating petal-type motif.

United States Mint Gold Medal H. Dudley Coleman 1941 With Presentation Box

This is a gold medal presented to H. Dudley Coleman for long and distinguished service to the United States Mint.

Later, in 1912, he served as a member of the United States Assay Commission. The medal contains 91.4g gold.

Memorandum of Gold Bullion Deposit 1885

Memorandum of Gold Bullion Deposit 1885

Memorandum of gold bullion deposited at the United States Assay Office at New York on December 24, 1885. This deposit was made by the Mercantile National Bank in the amount of $1,859.98. The memorandum has three deep vertical folds and one lesser horizontal fold. It also has an abundance of calculations in pencil on the reverse along with an adhered, bent, torn and cancelled two cent stamp, some red stains and smudging. Overall, the reverse is evocative of the tromp l’oeil style practiced so well by William Harnett.
