$20 1929I  The N.B. of Commerce of Astoria, OR  Ch. #13354  Good-VG.  Well but evenly worn.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   $250.00

$10 1902PB  The United States N.B. of La Grande, OR  Ch. #(P)9314  VG-Fine.  Well circulated, but not bad.  The signatures are legible and the note is presentable.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   260.00

$10 1929I  The First N.B. of Medford, OR  Ch. #7701  Fine.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   155.00

$10 1929II  Medford N.B., Medford, OR  Ch. #13771  Fine or so.   Quite scarce.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   240.00

$20 1929II  The First N.B. and Trust Co. of Bethlehem, PA  Ch. #138  Ch. CU.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   260.00

$20 1929I  The Lehigh Valley N.B. of Bethlehem, PA  Ch. #2050  EF, and it looks better.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   155.00

$10 1929I  The First N.B. of Blue Ridge Summit, PA  Ch. #12281  Fine.  Great, evocative, three-word town name, and quite scarce!  If you subscribe to Bank Note Reporter, check out Mark Hotz's article on Blue Ridge Summit and its bank in the November issue.    . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   650.00

$10 1929I  The Deposit N.B. of Du Bois, PA  Ch. #5019  VG-Fine.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   77.00

$20 1882BB  The First N.B. of Indiana, PA  Ch. #313  Fine, but with lots of pinholes and some major repairs, crudely done.  Old-timers like me will take one look at the repairs and immediately know whose handiwork it is on this note .  An early Brown Back, one of two $20 Brown Backs known from the bank.  Pen signatures.  . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   485.00

$20 1929I  Farmers and Citizens N.B. of Montgomery, PA  Ch. #8866  VF+ with an edge tear.  Quite nice overall.   A scarce Lycoming County issue.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   195.00

$10 1902PB  The First N.B. of New Albany, PA  Ch. #8973  VG.  The back got most of the wear.  An elusive Bradford County note, with just ten large size notes reported.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   235.00

$10 1929II  The N.B. of North East, PA  Ch. #9149  Unc.  A bright, crisp, and original note with strong embossing.  To the left of the portrait there is either a closed internal tear or a paper flaw of some sort, but it is unobtrusive and really hardly noticeable.  A very elusive location for notes, and this is a beauty!   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   350.00

$5 1902PB  The Cement N.B. of Siegfried at Northampton, PA  Ch. #5227  Fine-VF.  Interesting title and an unusual layout to match.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   240.00

$10 1929I  The Parnassus N.B., Parnassus, PA  Ch. #7363  Fine or so.  A very, very scarce note, with just six small size examples with this title in the census.  Track & Price values it at $850.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   525.00

$5 1902RS  The Western N.B. of Philadelphia, PA  Ch. #(E)656  VG-Fine  A presentable Red Seal, despite a few pinholes, from a scarcer Philadelphia bank.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   520.00

$10 1882DB  The Centennial N.B. of the City of Philadelphia, PA  Ch. #(E)2317  VF-EF, with a few small and really minor stains on the back noted for accuracy.  A really attractive note, helped by a good layout.  The seventh $10 '82 Date Back reported, of 32 notes total known from the bank.  Though not technically rare, this is a very elusive Philadelphia bank, with an unusual title shared with just a handful of other banks originally chartered in 1876.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   975.00

$5 1929II The Erie N.B. of Philadelphia, PA  Ch. #13032  Fine+.  The sixth Type II $5 to show up.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   87.00

$10 1902PB  The Farmers Deposit N.B. of Pittsburgh, PA  Ch. #685  VF+.  A bright, nice-looking note despite a bunch of pinholes, perhaps 13-14.  As a collector (of Nationals from eight California counties and several East Coast towns where I've lived), pinholes don't bother me much.  If you're like me, this note is a bargain.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   145.00

$5 1929I  The Highland N.B. of Pittsburgh, PA  Ch. #12414  VF.  A much scarcer Pittsburgh issuer: just 26 small size notes reported, of which only four are $5's!   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   115.00

$5 1929I  The First N.B. of Swissvale, PA  Ch. #6109  VG, with paper pulls on the back.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   56.00

$20 1929I  The Grange N.B. of Tioga, PA  Fine+, with a tiny penned “40” to the left of the portrait.  One of the scarcest of the Grange banks.  Few auction appearances, and realizations in excess of $2000.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   1650.00

$10 1929I  First N.B. and Trust Co. of Waynesburg, PA  Ch. #13134  VG-Fine   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   50.00

$10 1902PB  The Norwood N.B. of Greenville, SC  Ch. #(S)8766  VG, with a small hole dead-center at the juncture of the folds.  A decent note overall.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   135.00

$10 1902PB  The City N.B. of Sumter, SC  Ch. #10129  VG.  A well circulated note but quite scarce, with only 12 notes reported and no public sales since 2012.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   350.00

$20 1929II  The First N.B. of Savannah, TN  Ch. #8889  PMG VG 10.  I'm thinking the grade may be a tad optimistic, as this twenty has been through hell and back.  It nonetheless is a very scarce note, with nine small size notes and two sheets reported.  This is the only known Type II $20, and the only Type II not part of a sheet.   . . .   FACE   . . .   BACK   . . .   295.00
