Iowa National Bank Notes : A Comprehensive Census Of The Notes And History Of The Banks
From the Civil War until 1935, national banks were authorized to issue federal currency under their own names and bearing the signatures of local bank officers. Over 500 national banks in Iowa issued almost $300,000,000 worth of notes. The tiny percentage of notes that still survive have become treasured collector's items. The Higgins Museum in Okoboji, Iowa, displays many of these rare and unusual notes for the pleasure of the viewers. This book presents detailed information on 11,058 known Iowa notes. Data summarizing the census by town, note type, and Treasury signatures, etc. are also provided.
