Gaffney, SC - Ch. 5064 - $20 1902 Blue Seal Gaffney, SC had two national banks. This $20 blue seal is from the early bank that changed its name from The National Bank of Gaffney to The First National Bank of Gaffney, just months before The Merchants and Planters Bank nationalized in 1914. We can assume that was a bit of old school gamesmanship to let the good folks in Cherokee County know that charter 5064 was the original national bank in town.

Middleborough, MA - Ch. 3994 - $5 1882 Brown Back There was only one national bank in Middleborough. It was open from 1889 until 1916. The five dollar brown back being offered here brings the census for the bank to a total of five notes. This is the first time a note from Middleborough has been offered for sale since 1990. So an entire generation of collectors has never had a chance to add this Plymouth County town to their holdings. The note is an absolute peach.

The first of two really nice Fairfield, PA notes. Even if you don't collect Pennsylvania notes, this is just a flat out beautiful example of the two things most collectors look for in nationals: pen signatures and crisp original paper.
