$5 1902PB The John Weedman N.B. of Farmer City, IL Ch. #3407 Good-VG. Avidly collected as one of the great "private name" National Banks. This one won't win any prizes for grade, but it is intact, and has legible signatures and decent color for a well worn note. . . . FACE . . . BACK . . . $225.00
$10 1929I The Central N.B. of Green Castle, IN Ch. #2896 VF+. Currently the town is known as Greencastle. So was it Greencastle or Green Castle when this bank was chartered? . . . FACE . . . BACK . . . 175.00
$20 1902PB The First N.B. of Marion, IA Ch. #117 Fine, with some mottled discoloration, particularly on the back. Strong blue pen signatures. A scarce note with a Kelly price of $350. . . . FACE . . . BACK . . . 275.00
$100 1929I The Citizens N.B. of Covington, KY Ch. #4260 Good-VG NET. Technically more like Fine, but with a small piece missing from the left side, a slightly rough top edge, and pinholes. Priced very reasonably for a Kentucky $100. . . . FACE . . . BACK . . . 295.00
$5 1929II The St. Charles N.B. of Norco, LA Ch. #13839 FRAGMENT. Probably about one-third of the note remains, but the fragment includes the charter number, title, most of the town name, and part of the serial number. Just five notes are reported from this bank, only one of which is a five. The last one to sell publicly was a VG 8 auctioned by Heritage in 2013 for $2115. Few notes truly embody the term "filler" better than this one, but it's an affordable place-holder until you can find an intact example. . . . FACE . . . BACK . . . 175.00
$10 1902PB Manufacturers N.B. of Cambridge, MA Ch. #(N)11152 Good. Rough edges and some rust spots. Not a thing of beauty, but the signatures are legible on this rare Boston-area note. Only four public offerings, none since 2010! . . . FACE . . . BACK . . . 450.00
