About the Danford Knowlton Find

In 1992 about 200 pieces comprising what has become known as the “Danford-Knowlton find” appeared on the revenue market. It consisted primarily of incoming bills of exchange from Cuba dated 1865-1872. Incoming Foreign exchange is a scarce usage, and these bills typically bear a variety of manuscript and hand stamped markings documenting their travels. This is part of a recent discovery of an additional 100 pieces of Danford-Knowlton material and represents a significant opportunity for the US First Issue Revenue specialist. Only a small portion of this additional material will be offered here.
