What a wonderful Christmas present @scopru....a low charter # and very nice eye appeal.
Part of the fun of collecting Nationals, especially if it's your hometown, is researching the bank that issued the note. You may not know it, but some local Librairies and Universities have photographic archives. I visited the Hillsborough County Public Library and found the Burgert Brothers Photographic Collection (1864-1964). The Burgert Brothers took thousands of photographs in and around Tampa, including prominent bank buildings. At this point, I contacted a local commercial photographer and asked if he would obtain the negatives from the library and print 12" X 16" photographs from the original negatives. Then, I took the photographs to Jo-Ann's and asked them to mount both the photograph and National Banknote in a frame with museum glass. The photographs depict the issuing bank in a time period when the National Banknote was circulating. Some of the Burgert Brothers photographs were eventually used to make postcards. These three hang in the dining room.
Steve thank you for the nice comment. I was surprised by the gift as most of the family rolls eyes when I start talking numismatics. So apparently they are paying attention - a little. I have a suspicion there may be another one for New Years present given a comment or two that was made... we shall see.
There are many things on this site that impress me. This display of yours is one of them. I am going to bookmark that reply and emulate your display at some point in the future. That is really cool.
