Before U.S. paper money was introduced during the Civil War, paper currency was issued by state-chartered banks from 1782-1866. Thoseobsolete bank-issued notes are highly prized collectibles, and you can now own a Gem Crisp Uncirculated $1 bank note over 200 years old!
We were able to acquire a small group of 1815 Farmers Bank of Bucks County notes that have been carefully preserved in original Crisp condition. Farmers Bank was founded during the financial turmoil of the War of 1812, when businessmen in Bucks County, Pennsylvania decided that their survival depended on creating their own bank. It opened in Hulmeville, Pennsylvania – founded by the family of the bank’s first president John Hulme, and located just “18 miles from Philadelphia” as stated on the currency!
Two years after their 1815 printing, Pennsylvania banned notes by state-chartered banks in denominations under $5. So these notes were placed in secure storage at the bank and never issued. The notes offered here are among the last of this premium-quality group and supplies are limited. Reserve your 200-year-old obsolete note today!
