Old Money from The Lumberman’s National Bank Of Muskegon | 2081

The Lumberman’s National Bank Of Muskegon

The Lumberman’s National Bank Of Muskegon in Michigan printed $204,600 dollars worth of national currency. That is a small output. National bank notes from here should be scarce. This national bank opened in 1873 and stopped printing money in 1893, which equals a 21 year printing period. That is a fairly normal lifespan for a national bank. During its life, The Lumberman’s National Bank Of Muskegon issued 2 different types and denominations of national currency. We have examples of the types listed below. Your bank note should look similar. Just the bank name will be different. For the record, The Lumberman’s National Bank Of Muskegon was located in Muskegon County. It was assigned charter number 2081.

The Lumberman’s National Bank Of Muskegon in Michigan printed 2,500 sheets of $5 original series national bank notes. It is actually pretty standard for an early national bank to have a sheet output range between 2,500 and 5,000. The exact value of a bill is still going to be based on the number of notes known and the condition of each bank note. Each five dollar original series bank note has a spiked red seal. That is pretty much the only design difference between it and later issues. These are really beautiful notes. One neat thing about these is that the back of each note has a vignette of the corresponding state seal. Some of the state seals are very imaginative. Collecting by state seal was very popular early on in the hobby. Today most collectors are more concerned about bank of issue and condition. Serial number one bank notes are also extremely popular.
Original Series $5 National Bank Note

The Lumberman’s National Bank Of Muskegon printed 7,730 sheets of $5 series of 1875 national bank notes. A print range between 5,000 and 10,000 is a pretty high number. But you have to remember we are talking about bank notes from the 1870s and 1880s. Even banks with high issue numbers could be rare today. Series of 1875 $5 bills are some of the most commonly encountered bank notes from the first charter series. Only the original series $1 bill is more available. Some banks exclusively issued five dollar bills. So if you want an example from one of those banks then you don’t have many options. These notes have a rounded red seal and red serial numbers. They also all have a red charter number.
