In 1858 individual engravers and engraving companies that evolved from the early 18th century came together to form
American Bank Note Company (ABNCo). This company literally “papered” the world. By 1959 ABNCo and its affiliates had prepared bank notes for 115 countries, or all but about 18 countries in existence at the time.
