The famous American sport shoe company NIKE, was named after this goddess; The statue depicted on the back is a replica of the famous sculpture of Nike made in 421 B.C. by the Greek sculptor Paionios. As can be seen on this photograph, the original sculpture is badly damaged, but the (very small) replica that is depicted on this bond can be seen in the right lower corner of the photo. The goddess is landing on a triangular pillar: the rucks of her cloths suggest the speed with which she lands. (source: Zadoks, 1954, p. 65), condition VF-EF, 25 Euro.

176 pages in colour with detailed illustrations of stocks and engravings,; interesting texts about the USA company history and on the history of the art of engraving in the USA, specifying many engravers by name and the engravings they made when working at various printing companies: a feast for the eyes !

Tomasko, Mark D. (2002), Carlson Launches American Bank Note Into the Space Age, Financial History, Summer 2002, p. 24-29;
Interesting article about Sven Ohrvel Carlson who painted  for ABNC  in order that they could modernise their engravings, ca; 20 illustrations of engravings  and certificates.

Engravers of mythological figures
The artist Asher Durand, who started business with his brother Cyrus, an engraver in New York in 1824, is responsible for the introduction of mythological figures, drawn in the Greek manner which gave their distinctive style to the vignettes on the bonds and share certificates engraved by the American Banknote Company (ABNC). In later years, until his death in 1948, Alonzo E. Foringer continued the tradition of portraying Greek gods and godesses. Many of his allegorical figures grace the vignettes on certificates issued during that period. Source: Hendy, 1980, p. 5.
