— Mike Bean cards —
( prefix: MB )
Michael Bean worked as a plate printer for the Bureau of Engraving & Printing from 1971 to 2005, often running the demonstration spider press that the Bureau brought to hobby shows. His association with the SCCS began with his printing of the Society's specially engraved logo; he is an SCCS life member. During his time with the Bureau, he was involved with printing numerous "forerunner" Union cards (F) and Federal Managers cards (FM). Mike went on to print nearly all the the SCCS National (N) and Washington Chapter (W) cards and the majority of Metro Chapter (M) cards. In addition, Mike has produced and sold his own souvenir cards (MB), sometimes under the pseudonym "Great Lakes Bank Note Company." He is often present at paper money shows when the BEP is not, bringing his own spider press for demonstrations.
