Overview

Tying together the history and economic development of the state, this catalog of Florida paper money covers Colonial days through the Great Depression-765 notes in all.
The book includes currency issued by governments such as the Territory of Florida and the state of Florida; scrip issued by cities and counties; and notes issued by banks, railroads, insurance companies, merchants and individuals. Entries provide information on the paper money's issuers and engravers as well as an estimate of rarity using the familiar Sheldon scale. Whenever possible, the author has identified portraits of real and mythological characters or allegorical representations on the notes.
