The Clayton National Bank Of Clayton in Missouri issued 1,704 sheets of Type1 1929 $10 national bank notes. That is a pretty typical sheet output for a national bank during the small size era. Each $10 bill from 1929 has a portrait of Alexander Hamilton on it. The black number written vertically is the charter number. The charter number never affects the value; it is just an identifier. The ten dollar type1 national bank note happens to be the single most common national bank note, with over 65,000 known to exist from all banks. Of course each note is valued based on its condition and rarity. Some are very rare.

The Clayton National Bank Of Clayton printed 518 sheets of Type1 1929 $20 national bank notes. This is a small print range, but it does not guarantee rarity.

The Clayton National Bank Of Clayton also printed 3,443 individual notes from the type2 1929 $10 national bank note series. That may seem like a high number, but remember that is total notes printed for the denomination, not sheets printed. The easiest way to spot the difference between type1 1929 $10 bills and 1929 type2 $10 bills is in the serial number. Type2 notes have a serial number that ends with a number. 1929 type1 notes have a serial number that ends with the letter A. Generally speaking, these $10 bills are rarer than the earlier type1 issues. However, most collectors don’t pay more for that rarity because they look basically the same.

The Clayton National Bank Of Clayton also printed 775 individual notes from the type2 1929 $20 national bank note series. Type2 1929 national bank notes are already rare to begin with.

Until the big head $20 series started there really wasn’t much difference between something printed in 1929 and the same bill printed in 1993.
