Been collecting coins for quite awhile but not really currency, but would like to. I've seen bank notes with local banks on the notes. What are these called exactly and did all small banks have their own "stamp" ,for lack of a better term, on them? I live is a small town of Leland, Il with a population of about 1,000 and I know they had some and would love to find one. And what denominations did they do this to?

Rest in Peace

National currency is the type that look like regular notes, except they have the name of the bank and its charter number. New ones are series 1929, but there are also large-size nationals.

Large come in $1-2-5-10-20-50-100, small in 5-10-20-50-100.

Thanks, that gives me something else to be on the look out for. I was at a local dealer the other day and he pulled out a green book that seem to list all of these along with known examples and values. I need to ask where I can find that book if I get serious about this.

That green book may have been Paper Money of the United States by Friedberg, the new 2010 edition is not green, it's a new and improved one in color.

Also, you might want to take a look at Obsolete Notes. Most states had them. Here is a book on them for IL:

Obsolete currency is so pretty and ornate. I have some baby bonds that were issued in Louisiana around 1874 and some fractional obsolete currency. I put them in a poster, but they shift around in there, so I will have to do something different with them. Pics are little blurry, but you get the idea of how they all look.







They designed them so pretty back then.

Very nice display, CajunLady. You might want to try and put them in a plastic envelope and then tape the envelope to the poster board. Like some double faced tape behind it or create a circle of tape and use that. That way you don't see the tape and it'll look nicer.

OH, Briank...........do a search on Ebay and put in your state... then select the group "coins and paper money". You may be surprised as to what you will find.

Have fun looking.

I'll have to try that, but I'm sure it would be pretty pricey!

The reference book to buy for National Bank Notes is written by Don Kelly. It is organized by each state listing every known bank charter number along with the values for each bank. It goes into much more detail than the Freidberg book.

It was a $ 1929 Earlville Illinois note, had a crease but still has to be a rare note, First National Bank Of Earlville, sold for 241.00 was that a deal? Grade wise unsure ,looked good except the crease horizontally.
