Right, they were something of an emergency issue that were printed from existing National Currency (NBN) plates.
nickelsearcher - There several appealing aspects to collecting these FRBNs.
First, they played a key role in the complicated transition from large to small size notes in this country. Second, they are a one-year type note, which makes collecting all denominations for all of the 12 districts that issued them an achievable feat. Third, most print runs were tiny by the standards of most green and blue seal notes of only a decade later, much less by today's numbing figures, which makes them an excellent long term value to me. And finally, along with their long-gone NBN, gold and silver certificate, and US Note cousins, they were a part of the color rainbow of paper money seals that I remember so well from childhood.
