This Cuban one peso note is printed on Crane paper by the American Banknote Company in 1896. American Bank Note Company became a very good customer for Crane in the late 19th century. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing took over all printing of U.S. bank notes (1877) and stamps (1894) from commercial printers and so companies like American Bank Note Company had to turn to international markets to continue producing currency.
