Lacquering seal on a note ?

5 posts in this topic

Interesting, I'll have to look this up tomorrow. I'm going to assume that this was a preservation attempt but I want to look into it further. 


I haven't been able to access the forums  for over a week, I'll be happy to take a look at this know that the chat boards are back up and running.

I can't say with certainty but the most likely reason for lacquering the seal and serial numbers would be to preserve them and/or to make them appear more vibrant. A practice that may have been considered acceptable at one time, along with pressing notes, but is now frowned upon. That's my best guess anyway, and definitely a note I would steer clear of.
