The Exchange National Bank of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania printed $18,328,290 dollars worth of national currency. Once a bank issues that much money there really isn't much room for rare issues. This bank was organized in April 1865 with an authorized capital of $100,000. James B. Murray was the first president and Henry M. Murray the first cashier. The institution was placed into receivership on October 23, 1931, by which time the capital had been reduced to $75,000. This national bank opened in 1865 and stopped printing money in 1931, which equals a 67 year printing period. That is considering a long operation period for a national bank.
