Received this sheet of 6 notes of the Batavian Bank - Wisconsin,reverse is blank.
it was a gift from an eBayseller of which I bought a couple of other notes.
I believe this a reproduction of an original sheet ?

Interesting notes!

Both Haxby (WI-320-G4a) and Krause list this note as a remainder. Your notes certainly look like remainders.

A sheet of 6 like yours is really atypical for obsoletes of the period (1860's). They usually came in sheets of 4 notes, many times with different denominations on the sheet. Both Haxby and Krause list the sheet with only 2 notes as $1-5.

They are also not listed as typical reproductions.

Are they engraved or lithographed?

I am confused.

I just noticed that all 6 notes in the sheet are plate letter A notes. This most probably (together with 6 notes per sheet) says that this sheet is a fake. They should have different plate letters - say A, B, C, D, E, F.

Below is an image (courtesy of Heritage archives) that shows both the front and back of a remainder of your $5 Batavian note. If your sheet does NOT have the green protector on the back, then it definitely is a fake.

You can also look at much higher resolution images in the Heritage archives.

Hi Bernie,

The reverse has the green protector, I'm pretty shure these are copies of the note
you show from the Heritage archive, and yes the plate number A is on every note.
the deadgive away is the paper which is used for these copies,
not the typical thin bankpaper of that period.

The pictures are here to show there are modern copies of the Batavian Bank out there,
if cut up, the platenumber is no giveaway anymore.
thanks for your input,

regards Andre
