SPMC "Paper Money" Journal Articles

"Paper Money"Articles Index

The SPMC (Society of Paper Money Collectors) has a wonderful index for all their "Paper Money" journals and is broken down into sub-categories, such as Small-Size notes. 

SPMC Paper Money Articles Index - Small-Size

While this index is very helpful in finding articles by name or author and has links to individual articles and journals, it doesn't categorize them into topic, type, series, denomination, etc.  It is also missing a number of articles relating to early small-size varieties that I found interesting.  This page is a categorical breakdown of articles relating to early small-size varieties that are currently included in the Paper Money Project or will be in the future.  Variety-specific articles are not included on this page but are referenced within each respective variety page.
