Dave Bowers and Dave Sundman announce
New Hampshire Currency Study Project Website
LITTLETON Q. David Bowers of Wolfeboro, New Hampshire and David M. Sundman of Littleton, New Hampshire announce a website detailing their long-term New Hampshire Currency Study Project is now available at www.nhcurrency.com.
To present the scope of the proposed book, New Hampshire Provincial, State and National Currency, the authors have published a sample chapter on this website. The chapter selected features the currency and financial history of Lancaster, New Hampshire, a town located in northern New Hampshire and famous to numismatists and note collectors for the “Santa Claus Note” shown on the home page, issued by the White Mountain Bank of Lancaster. It concludes with the history and notes of the Lancaster National Bank.
Additional chapters will be added from time to time. This project is being done in coordination with the Society of Paper Money Collectors (SPMC), with help from many museums and other entities, including the Smithsonian Institution, the New Hampshire Historical Society, and more.
This expansive project is a work in progress, and help and contributions of information and suggestions are requested. Although the work is quite advanced, Bowers and Sundman are still seeking information regarding rare New Hampshire currency 1700-1935. All information that is used will be acknowledged in the published book.
