The Bebee Collection

Aubrey E. and Adeline I. Bebee

Aubrey Bebee, ANA life member 110, collected coins, paper money, and numismatic books, for most of his life.  Bebee began assembling his world-class collection of U.S. paper money in 1941.  The collection eventually grew to include many spectacular rarities, including a Series of 1934 $10,000 Federal Reserve note.  By the time he and his wife (and collecting partner), Adeline, donated the collection to the ANA in 1988 it included over 500 individual notes and numerous uncut sheets.  This online presentation features highlights from the Bebee collection of U.S. Paper Money as well as examples of paper money from other donations within the ANA Money Museum Collections.
