GREENBACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 14 May 1914

GREENBACKS. Few people, perhaps, are aware why the national American currency is priuted with green backs. Ever since the adoption of paper currency it lias been the constant study of bank-note engravers to get up some plan of printing bills that could not be coun terfeited. In this they only partly succeeded till as late as 1S57, when a man named Stacy J. Edson invi-nted a kind of green ink, which he patent ed June 30 o£ that year. It is called auli-photograpliic ink, because it can uot bo photographed and cannot be dislodged with alkalies by counterfei ters to. get a complete facsimile o! the bilis. As it js a secret known only to tho American Bank Note Com pany and the Inventor, It is impossible .to counterfeit the greenback money. Even if tho composition of the ink was known, it would be of no use, as the work could not be copied from the genuine bills with any other kind of ink.
