$10 1902PB  American-Traders N.B. of Birmingham, AL  Ch. #7020  Good.  Well-worn, with a rough top edge.   . . .   FACE    . . .   BACK   . . .   59.00

$10 1929I  The First N.B. of Eutaw, AL  Ch. # 3931  VG-Fine.  . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   235.00

$5 1929I  The First N.B. of Goodwater, AL  Ch. #12960  Fine, with a couple of small, unobtrusive, paper pulls on the back.  A rare bank, featuring a classic town name!   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   950.00

$5 1929I  The American N.B. of Mobile, AL  Ch. #13414  VF+.  Trimmed but attractive.  . . .   FACE    . . .   BACK   . . .   89.00

$5 1929II  The First N.B. of Montgomery, AL Ch. #1814  Fine-VF  The scarcest denomination from the first National Bank to be chartered in the state capital.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   82.00

$10 1929II  The First N.B. of Azusa, CA  Vh. #8065  Fine.  One of only four Type II $10s reported.  A popular San Gabriel Valley note.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   295.00

$5 1929I  The First N.B. of Cloverdale, CA  Ch. #11282  Net Good.  Rough top and bottom edges, with a few pieces missing at the bottoim, and a couple of significant stains.  This is a tough Sonoma County note in small size (and downright rare in large size), and this is a serviceable filler until a better example comes along.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   240.00

$20 1902PB  The First N.B. of Delano, CA  Ch. #9195  Good-VG.  Bright and presentable for the grade, just well-circulated and slightly rough around the edges.  I've seen worse notes in "Fine 12" slabs.  A genuinely rare Kern County prize: this was the only issuing bank in town; it issued large size notes only; and this previously unknown note is only the fifth one to surface from this location.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   3100.00

$20 1929I  The Hollister N.B., Hollister, CA  Ch. #13510  Fine.  A really scarce San Benito County note.  Only two banks issued in San Benito County, both in Hollister, with the earlier bank issuing only large size notes and this one issuing only small size.  The large size-only bank, Charter #9378, actually is more common, and the large size notes tend to come in higher grade than notes from this bank.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   565.00

$10 1929I  California First N.B. of Long Beach, CA  Ch. #11873  Good, with a pinhole next to a hole the size of a match head.  A rough note, but priced right.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   135.00

$20 1929I  Security-First N.B. of Los Angeles, CA  Ch. #2491  VG.  1" tear.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   45.00

$10 1929II  Security-First N.B. of Los Angeles, CA  Ch. #2491  VF, nice note despite a crayon mark on the face that could easily be removed with the right solvent.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   48.00

$10 1902PB  The N. City B. of Los Angeles, CA  Ch. #12410  VG-Fine or a bit better.  A more elusive L.A. bank that didn't issue small size and from which just 36 notes are reported.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   190.00

$20 1929I  The Seaboard N.B. of Los Angeles, CA  Ch. #12545  Fine-VF.  Bright and attractive for the grade.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   75.00

$10 1929I  The First N.B. of Oakdale, CA  Ch.#7502  Fine or a bit better.  Stanislaus County. . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   425.00

$10 1929I  The Citizens N.B. of Ontario, CA  Ch. #13092  VF.  A scarce San Bernardino County issue, with 24 small size notes known.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   340.00

$20 1929I  The Citizens N. Trust and Savings B. of Riverside, CA  Ch. #8907  Fine+.  Nice face for the grade.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   195.00

$50 1902DB The N.B. of D.O. Mills & Co., Sacramento, CA  Ch. #(P)2014  PCGS Fine 15.  A popular private-name bank originally chartered as a Gold Bank.  This is an evenly circulated Date Back Fifty with a small "21" in pencil that no one erased before the note was slabbed, attesting to the note's originality.  I am fortunate to have several Sacramento collectors as customers; rather than favor one over the others, I decided the fairest approach is to simply list this neat high denomination example on my website and give everyone an equal chance.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   1350.00

$5 1929II  The Salinas N.B., Salinas, CA  Ch. #13380  Fine.  An evenly circulated Type II from the Monterey County seat.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   425.00

$20 1929I  The Anglo & London Paris N.B. of San Francisco, CA  Ch. #9174  Fine.   . . .   FACE    . . .   BACK    . . .   57.00

$5 1929I  The Anglo California N.B. of San Francisco, CA  Ch. #9174  VF-EF.  Nice note with the second and less international title available on small size notes from this bank.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   97.00

$10 1929I  The Anglo California N.B. of San Francisco, CA  Ch. #9174  Fine.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   59.00

$5 1929II  The B. of California N. Assoc., San Francisco, CA  Ch. #9655  VF.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   67.00

$5 1929I  B. of Italy N. Trust and Savings Assoc., San Francisco, CA  Ch. #13044  VG-Fine.  A decent example with the popular Bank of Italy title.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   79.00

$5 1929I  B. of America N. Trust and Savings Assoc., San Francisco, CA  Ch. #13044  VG   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   39.00

$10 1929I  B. of America N. Trust and Savings Assoc., San Francisco, CA  Ch. #13044  Fine.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   48.00

$5 1929II  B. of America N. Trust and Savings Assoc., San Francisco, CA  Ch. #13044  VG.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   39.00

$5 1929I  The Commercial N.B. of Santa Ana, CA  Ch. #13200  PCGS Fine 12.  Scarcer Santa Ana bank.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   285.00

$10 1902PB  Santa Cruz County N.B. of Santa Cruz, CA  Ch. #(P)9745  PMG Fine 15.  22 large size notes with this title.  A popular and elusive 1902 example from "Surf City, USA."   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   1625.00

$20 1929I  The Pajaro Valley N.B. of Watsonville, CA  Ch. #9621  Fine.  A very elusive Santa Cruz County issuer.  Just 13 small size notes reported, and they tend to be closely held.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   1095.00

$5 1902PB  The First N.B. of Whittier, CA  Ch. #5588  VF, with a few small rust spots on the back that detract only slightly.  Really attractive!   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   605.00

$5 1902PB  The First N.B. of Mancos, CO  Ch. #9674  PCGS VF 30.  A bright and attractive example from this elusive institution.  A faint wallet stain on the back attests to the originality of this note; no one has tried to "improve" it.  This was the only bank to issue in this Montezuma County community in Southwestern Colorado.  Just a great note!   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   1900.00
