Super nice but for us that don't know, why is there a large serial number on the top right and the low number 1 on the bottom left?

Why aren't they the same?

I was wondering the same thing, TNG.

I believe the upper right number is the note's Treasury serial number while the lower left number is the individual bank serial number. The BEP eventually did away with this numbering system later on towards the end of the large size National bank note issuance.

By the way, the 4 digit brown number (below the Treasury serial number) is the bank's charter number.

That's correct. The use of the Treasury serial number was eventually discontinued.

Stever - That's a wonderful note, tell us how you came to acquire it!
