When in NYC a Visit to Champion is a Must for the Serious Bank Note Collector
January 25, 2008

While in NYC earlier this month, I had the pleasure to once again visit the store and showroom of Champion Stamp Co. located at 432 west 54 street.

Arthur Morowitz has the large second floor corner office and is always friendly and a great conversationalist, Marty Appelbaum is a great organizer and the consument professional, however my main connection in the firm is Jon Morowitz who is my contact for updates and corrections to listings in our Standard Catalog of World Paper Money series of books.

Their business has been for some time American Bank Note Company, Harrison & Sons or Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co. specimens. However, in the past few years they have expanded to also provide a great selection of higher grade issued world notes too.

So, when in NYC, call ahead and arrange a visit. They are open 10-4, and late on Thursdays, to 7. The second floor showroom also is the place to see available inventory of vignette engravings, stocks and bonds.

The company website is Stop by for a visit, download the current catalog of specimen bank notes, or see what new offerings are available. Including a wonderful where to eat guide to NYC.
