Amon G Carter Jr. (2014)
A worldwide banknote collector of legendary magnitude who was IBNS Life Member #5, Amon Carter’s continuing impact on world banknote collecting cannot be overstated.
Even today, more than 30 years after his death, he epitomizes the aspiration of every collector and the annual exhibit award at the Memphis International Paper Money Show is named in his honor. Although his accomplishments beyond numismatics in the world of business were extensive, he was genuinely willing to share both his knowledge and humanity. Every collector treasures any banknote that once resided in his fabulous collection. At the time of his death his private holding of banknotes was quite possibly the very best in the world
