    I'm gonna assume that's Leighton, Pennsylvania? You know it's really hard for us old timers to crane ourselves to read. Just a thought.

    Lehighton (/li'hɑitən/) is a borough in Carbon County, Pennsylvania, United States, 77 miles (124 km) north of Philadelphia, and 54 miles (87 km) south of Scranton.

    The Citizens National Bank Of Lehighton. The Citizens National Bank Of Lehighton in Pennsylvania printed $2,226,290 dollars worth of national currency. Over $1,000,000 face value is a lot of money. However, some types and denominations of currency from this bank could still be rare. This national bank opened in 1902 and stopped printing money in 1935, which equals a 34 year printing period.

    When coal was king, Carbon county was a busy area. I grew up in Nesquehoning. Nice note. Peace Roy

    A nice find regardless of value. The value of National Bank Notes is determined by rarity of both the note itself and by the rarity of collectors that are interested in it that have money.

    All glory is fleeting.
