In 1863, during the U.S. Civil War, the federal government established a system of National Banks throughout the country and in U.S. territories that were given the power to issue National Bank Notes. The notes, issued in both large and small-sizes, originated from a wide range of towns and cities. National Bank Notes (along with all other privately-issued currency) were retired by the U.S. government during the great depression, when currency was consolidated into Federal Reserve Notes, United States Notes and Silver Certificates.
We have many other National Bank Notes than just those listed below. Please call for availability.
