"New Jersey's money" George W. Wait

here is a link to at least the cover. ( Not my picture)

http://www.amazon.com/New-Jerseys-Money-George-Wait/dp/0932828035/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1217938390&sr=1-1

my copy is the Bicentennial edition Library of Congress Catalogue card 76-3234


Book covers Colonials through Depression Scrip, with the majority being Obsoletes and merchant scrip - the book Gives a listing of notes by denomination by bank by city, along with a rarity scale (And 1976 value approximation table by rarity) He also lists the source for his description of the notes- majority are (S) notes seen by author).

There are 2-4 pictures of notes for every two pages.


My copy has notes from a previous owner who added additional information about banks, varieties and denominations. (Possibly from Haxby )

I finally bought a new copy of the Wait book and found it to be an excellent reference. Within minutes I had resolved all cross-references to Haxby IDs in the spreadsheet I'm developing. The edition I have contains sections about Nationals and Scrip from NJ as well.

Greg,
I am confused by the various editions of this book. I have seen 1975, 1976, and 1977 editions being sold. Some have ~174 pages while others have ~434 pages. However, the number of pages seems to be inconsistent with the different editions and even ISBN numbers. Can you offer any enlightenment here?

I'm afraid I can't offer any insights. My 1976 copy has 435 pages.

Greg,
Would it be possible to get scans of the pages of the Artisan Bank notes from Trenton, NJ-540? There should not be too many pages since all notes are SENC in Haxby. By the way Haxby misspelled this bank's name as "Artizan's Bank."

Sure. I'll try to remember to do that tonight.

Here's all that was in the book.

Boy, that is even less information than Haxby. Wait does not even have the imprints.

It is interesting that he lists all notes as R-7, presumedly 1 to 5 known. This was in 1976 before the Haxby (1988) listing as SENC and before the 1990 Christie's sale which had at least one of each denominations. Why would Haxby list them as SENC? I suspect that Wait might be wrong?

Note that Haxby has misspelled the name of the bank as "Artizan's Bank."

Interesting question. I can think of several "maybe" type answers, but none that makes a great deal of sense.

My guess (and this is ONLY a guess), is that many references before Haxby gave *estimated* rarities, rather than something reflecting an actual census. I get the feeling reading Hoober that he may not have actually seen all of the notes that got R-7 ratings.

Haxby, though, I get sense slapped the SENC label on anything he hadn't seen or couldn't confirm. Which explains why I have a dozen or so SENC notes sitting in a Lindner album right now.

Well, I finally got myself a copy of the Wait book.

Negatives:
1. Not enough pictures of the notes.
2. Hardly any information on the banks. I like what Wolka has done in his Ohio book.

Positives:
1. I like the inclusion of the relevant pages from at least one counterfeit detector.
2. I like that he gives a source for each note.
3. I like the map. Wish he would have put only the towns that issued notes on the map though.
4. The pictures are clear and big.

In general a nice book, especially for 1976.

I got it directly from the publisher, The Newark Museum, for $25+$4, which is about half the price anywhere else.
