The First National Bank Of Fort Worth

The First National Bank Of Fort Worth in Texas printed $4,271,570 dollars worth of national currency. Over $1,000,000 face value is a lot of money. This national bank opened in 1877 and stopped printing money in 1935, which equals a 59 year printing period. That is considering a long operation period for a national bank. During its life, The First National Bank Of Fort Worth issued 9 different types and denominations of national currency. For the record, The First National Bank Of Fort Worth was located in Tarrant County. It was assigned charter number 2349.

The First National Bank Of Fort Worth also printed 35,391 sheets of $10 1882 blue seal national bank notes. These were only issued by banks for about ten years (at the most). So it is unusual to see such a high sheet output. This will likely be a common issue unless it is rare signature combination variety. All of these notes say series of 1882 but they were actually printed between 1908 and 1921. So they aren’t quite as old as the dates might suggest. There is also a date on these notes that is between 1888 and 1901. That date is written in cursive text and it represents when the bank was chartered or re-chartered. Some of the so called 1882 value back notes have a chance to be really rare. Most of the earlier notes that say 1882-1908 on the back are likely going to be relatively common. The designs are exactly the same on the front. Each has a blue seal and charter number.
