Antique Scrimshaw Sperm Whale Tooth

Primitive engraving of a three mast ship, initialed lower right "AT". Approximately 3-3/4"T.

During long voyages many whale-men spent their idle time carving on the sperm whale teeth or bones, carving intricate scenes into the teeth and bones, rubbing their carvings with ink or soot. American whalers produced some of the finest scrimshaw.

We think this piece depicts a prison or slave ship.

Condition: Very nice.

Description: This gracefully framed, commemorative engraving is the final card of a set of three devoted to the renowned Series 1896 Silver Certificates. Now a historic document, it is a true engraved replica of the $5 note of that group and was printed from a plate specially prepared for this purpose by the Department of the Treasury, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Washington, D.C. from the original master die, for the American Numismatic Association Members on the 2nd Anniversary Convention, August 23-27, 1973, in Boston.

The $5 note measures 7.25 inches long X 3 inches wide without allowances for margins. Under the engraving of the $5 note is the legend of the origin of the note. Certificate will be shipped un-mounted, but will take a simple framed measuring about 9 inches X 11 inches X 1 inch depth.  No discoloration or foxing.

NOTE: The female figure representing Electricity is clad in flowing robes, revealing a bare breast. This partial nudity was said to cause a disturbance nationwide, with Anthony Comstock, Secretary of the Society for Suppression of Vice, pressuring the U.S. Treasury to withdraw the “obscene” notes. Three years later, entirely new designs were issued replacing the controversial Educational series. This once “banned in Boston” note has since become the most popular of all U.S. Large Size banknotes. It is also interesting to note that an single, original $5 Silver Certificate from this series sold recently at US for $8000.

HISTORY: The famous "Educational Series" Silver certificate was issued in 1896. The entire front was covered with artwork and the back featured portraits of Ulysses Grant and Phillip Sheridan. Serial numbers, treasury seal and treasury official's signatures were all present on the front like normal. The silver certificate replaced the gold certificate when the United States government balanced its currency against the silver standard instead of the gold standard. The decision between gold and silver backing of US currency was one of the most hotly debated topics of the 1890's and figured prominently in at least one presidential election.

Walter Shirlaw, a well-known illustrator of the period and an accomplished banknote engraver, was commissioned by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, to prepare the note design, which he entitled, “America”. However, the borders and denominational counters he proposed were felt to lack harmony with the vignette and those features were accordingly redesigned by Thomas F. Morris, Chief of the Bureau Engraving Division.

This attractive replica piece sells for up to $300 or so.
We have a modest collection of stamps and coins including some gold pieces.

Picture #8 (left) shows us flapper style figures. These are very popular with art deco collectors. The Cosmopolitan, 1935, #280 and At the Tea Dance, 1928, #281 are very deco. These are followed by the only two children in the series, Gentle Moment, 1920 and her boyfriend, A Lazy Day, 1920. The numbers are 12-404 and 403. But I have the original brochure and these are definitely part of the set.. In picture #9 (below), we have Strolling on the Avenue, 1904, #282, Afternoon Tea, 1875, and Impatience, 1800, #287. Picture #10 (below) features Reflections, 1800, #286, Promenade at Nice, 1912, #308, and Silver Lace and Rhinestones, 1922, #307. Note that we are now into the higher numbers and they get relatively hard to come by.

Goebel 1986 Fashion on Parade catalog with this figurine in it. Her name is "A Gentle Moment, 1920" (The year is her style of clothing.) From the catalog, "This young girl is dressed for an outing in town. Her white frock of crinolin symbolizes purity and innocence. She is holding out a rose, perhaps for an admirer."
