Wow! That is so cool! That's the first set of American Bank Note certificates that I've seen in its original book form. How did you come across it?

Found them online - - They are from an old railroader's estate. I have a couple more. One actually has an ABN Co. stamp/sticker on the inside cover. I'll post the others soon.

Here's another one. This one is dated 1902 with some partially signed by the Treasurer and hole canceled. The others remain unissued and in perfect condition. The paper is light pink and has an ABNCo stamp on the front cover.

That is a fantastic find -- thanks so much for posting it. I really like the ABNC label!

Interestingly, there is a representative example shown on the Coxrail database for this scrip certificate. It is serial number #502 -- so it came out of your book!

Actually I believe that is the 'white paper' version of this scrip certificate. I don't think he has any scanned photos of the 'pink paper', which is what my book is. They are also for exchange prior to Dec 31, 1902 instead of Nov 1901. I'll have to get a scan for him. I also noticed he doesn't have a rarity logged either, so that's interesting. Might be rather scarce as well. But now I have a whole book of them, so maybe not anymore.
