  1. The wait continues as I have now resorted to sending in my notes in batches of ten, one batch per month. I figured this would give me something to look forward to every month as it is always a treat to get a box in the mail from PMG.

    This Oconto note was one of the first notes I had gotten some 30 years ago, one of the elder statesman in the hobby at the time learned of my interest in Wisconsin notes and offered up this note for little over face value. I just got it back from PMG and to my surprise look how PMG attributes the note.

    I think my scanner is causing the psychedelic "anti counterfeiting" rainbow toning surrounding the portraits. (shrug)


    The story behind the  same banks having different charter numbers:

    As told by Tom Snyder;

    The first national bank chartered in the state of Wisconsin was the Farmers and millers Bank of Milwaukee. Its president at the time of the national bank proposal was Edward D. Holton, H.H. Camp was the cashier. They received charter number 64 under the name of the First National Bank of Milwaukee. Their bank notes continued to be issued and reissued and in April 1882 their charter expired some four months before legislation to re-charter the banks for a second 20-year period was completed. This and the other early banks had no choice but to wind up their business under the old charter and reapply for a new charter as a completely new organization.

    The First National Bank of Milwaukee now received a new-20 year charter as number 2715. In 1902, the 20-year re-chartering procedure was in place. Following the practice of some eastern banks and for prestige reasons, in 1911 the bank requested of Congress and received an act reinstating its original charter number of 64.

    You need a 2ID short-timers calendar to countdown to receiving your notes B|.   I was in the Warrior Division twice and a third time in 6th CAV (an Eighth US Army unit).  Nice to see the 2ID crest!

    My bulk submission has seen movement, now "Scheduled For Grading", I think I may qualify to be called a "two digit midget" on my countdown calendar. Nice to have a fellow Warrior on board, not to many people recognize the crest but I always thought it was a pretty cool design. I was at Camp Casey 76 to 77.

    I collect large size Wisconsin Nationals and some US Large size type notes.
