The Peoples National Bank Of Helena in Montana issued 800 sheets of $5 original series territorial national bank notes. A print run under 1,000 will get the attention of most people. Combine that with a territorial and you have a real winner.

Most of them are low grade and they are rarely available on the collector market.

Original Series $5 Territorial National Bank Note

The Peoples National Bank Of Helena printed 310 sheets of $10 original series territorial national bank notes. Collectors love to buy notes from such a small print run. It doesn’t get much smaller than under 500 sheets printed. Now here is an amazing fact. We know that 42 national banks printed this type of bank note, yet only four examples are known to exist. That population of four is split between two banks in Denver. So the question becomes, what happened to the rest of them? The easiest explanation is that no one knew these would ever become rare and collectible, so they got spent and eventually destroyed by the government upon redemption. Any original series ten dollar bill from a bank other than Denver would certainly be a welcome find.
