ALABAMA ILLINOIS IOWA MARYLAND MASSACHUSETTS NEVADA NEW YORK NORTH CAROLINA NORTH DAKOTA PENNSYLVANIA TENNESSEE
The Albertville NB, AL Ch#11820. A very well but evenly circulated note from this far northern Al town that had its 2 national banks chartered back to back! Ch#11819 (First NB) and this one, #11820! A most unusual situation, especially in a small AL town!
The Third NB of Bloomington, IL Ch#2676. A very attractive note from this in demand central IL town. With a very late charter date of May 1, 1882, this bank issued 1875 series notes ($5, $50 and $100s), along with 1902 RSs and DBs ($10, $20s) before closing in 1911. This is one of 4 1875 $5s known, and has never been offered at auction. It is a problem free, evenly circulated note with excellent margins, good color and bold black pen sigs.
The First NB of Metropolis, IL Ch#M3156. A very desirable type from this far southern IL town in Massac County. A great town name always in demand for its Superman history! Only 10 larges are listed in the T&P census: 1 BB, 1 Red Seal and 8 Blue Seals, all grading Fine+ or less! This new note has good pen sigs and even wear. The red overprint is bold and bright. A really great note for the southern IL collector. The other RS sold in 2008 for $3680. Here's another chance that many thought might never come again!
The NB of Wyoming, IL Ch#6629. A neat town name from the only town to issue in Stark County, in the NW part of the state. With the other bank in town, The FNB, open only 3 years (1882-1885), with no known notes and with only $130 o/s, this bank represents the only chance to include this town in an ILL collection. There is a large brown stain along the bottom of the otherwise Fine note. Check the scans and see what you think!
The First NB of Coon Rapids, IA Ch#5514. A super town name that is sure to attract attention! Of the 17 larges listed in the T&P census, only 8 are 1902 notes, 2 of them $10s! Excellent blue pen sig of A F Greenwaldt as Cashier, black pen sig of M B Keister as Vp. The paper retains good crispness and shows just even wear. The last 3 sales at auction were for $1900+!
The NB of Cockeysville, MD Ch#4496. A neat town name from just north of Baltimore. Only 6 larges are known per T&P, 2 BBs and 4 1902s. Only 1 large has sold at auction a VF 1902 in 2000 for $4400! Smalls have been offered with several higher graded notes realizing $1000+. Our note shows several small margin splits and about 10 pinholes, most along the top and bottom. If you need this town for your collection, a small is going to have to do!
Holyoke NB, MA Ch#N1939. Only the second 1902 $5 DB to be reported on this long serving bank from just north of Springfield MA. It has lightly stamped sigs and a close bottom margin. Evenly circulated and problem free, it has light soiling as expected at this grade level.
First NB in Reno, NV Ch#7038. Appearing Gem at first glance, all we see on this deeply embossed note is a sharper corner fold at the lower right. The T&P census shows 9 AU55s, only 2 of them PPQ!
First NB in Reno, NV Ch#7038. A beautiful note that will please even the fussiest collector. In addition to the EPQ designation, PMG states "Great Embossing"!!
First NB in Reno, NV Ch#7038. Simply wonderful and perfect for a Gem grade state set!
The Merchants NB of Elmira, NY Ch#E5137. Only the second $5 VB reported on this Chemung County bank. Only this town and Horseheads had national banks in this southern NY county. Of the 6 banks chartered in Elmira 3 are unreported and one has only 2 larges known, making this the one bank to represent this town. This well circulated note has some staining but also good stamped sigs. The other $5 VB in VF25 sold in 2017 for $1175 - here's a chance for the underbidder!
The First NB of Thomasville, NC Ch#8788. A most attractive and wonderfully fresh note from the Furniture Capital of the country. Also perfect to represent NC in your state set of small nationals. Just 2 light bends on this beauty.
The First NB of Belfield, ND Ch# 9539. Serial# C000001A, ex-Jorde collection. A superb note from this small 1 bank town in the SW part of the state and one of only a couple of #1 1929 notes that Glen was able to acquire over the years! We see a very light center bend on this fresh, nicely embossed note. A note that you are sure to love.
The Washington NB of Burgettstown, PA Ch# 6944. New to the census and only the 3rd Ty2 $10 from a small town in the far SW part of the state. Very well worn but a tougher type on this bank.
The Lamberton NB of Franklin, PA Ch#E5221. Superb eye appeal makes this note from a private name bank very special. Deeply embossed with a deep blue overprint and sigs of 2 members of the Lamberton family! Listed in T&P as Ch CU with none grading better, close examination shows that the upper right corner has been restored, and done quite well. Backlighting shows it, also the paper there feels a bit thicker. It was well done and apparently missed by others. With the last 2 notes, XF at $500 and AU at $600, selling at strong levels, we feel that this beauty should please many collectors. Check out the scans! ON HOLD
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.
