National Bank Notes

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.
