National Bank Notes Ty2 1929 $10 The Farmers NB of Winchester, TN Ch#8640. This is only the third type 2 note on this bank, the second type 2 $10. It has a fair amount of light staining on both sides that affect its look but it remains a tough note from a better state. The 2 type 2 notes offered, in 2002 and 2009, realized about $600 each. This one is priced at a better level and should attract attention from the many TN collectors out there.
