The Passaic National Bank & TC Passaic also printed 55,064 sheets of Type1 1929 $10 national bank notes. Once you start talking about sheet printing numbers over 50,000 then there is no chance that issue will be rare. However, there could still be lots of collector value based on popularity and condition. 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.
