The First National Bank Of Taft in Texas issued 1,175 sheets of $5 1902 blue seal national bank notes. Most banks that printed such a small number of blue seal bank notes fall into the rare bank category. Ben Harrison is on the front of all 1902 $5 blue seal bank notes. This happens to be the smallest denomination issued for the 1902 series. Each note is complete with a blue seal and blue charter number. Despite saying series of 1902, these were actually issued by national banks between 1908 and 1928. There are two different types of blue seals. The first type is called a date back and it has “1902-1908” written on the back of the bill. The other type is called a plain back; it does not have the date stamps on the back of the bill. The values for these notes range widely based on condition and the bank of issue.

The First National Bank Of Taft printed 9,540 individual notes from the type2 1929 $10 national bank note series. This is a pretty typical print run for type2 national bank notes. Values will be across the board based on demand. 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.
