These are authentic proof vignettes from the American Bank Note Archives which were dispersed through auctions and private sales between 1988 and 2005. They are extremely rare intaglio proof vignette printed on India paper from the original plates in very limited quantities by ABNC. The vignettes were used for U.S. and Worldwide Obsolete banknotes, stock and bond certificates, checks, drafts and other fiscal issues. ABNC printed extra vignette proofs for use in future designs as well as for samples for their records. Most of them are known with very few impressions as vignettes (between 1 to 20 total, mostly in the 5 or 10 total printed category). Predecessor printers such as Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Co.; National Bank Note Co.; Continental Bank Note Co., and others are represented. All were acquired by ABNC over the years and kept in their archives that were stored by ABN. This is a rare opportunity to collect a rare historical engraving by this amazing company.
