1929 Pennsylvania National -First title charter 8499

The first title is The Farmers National Bank of New Holland and there was a smaller issue and only for type I notes. The second title is The Farmers National Bank & TC of New Holland and that run is larger and extends to type II notes.

So the question for the PA National experts is... Is there a premium for the first title over the second title?

The issue for the first title is relatively small- 420 sheets for the $10 and 148 sheets for the $20

    I found this on Heritage as they sold a $20 back in 2001. And this is the description...

    A rare Lancaster County note, as this bears the first title, used here only until May of 1930. Kelly reports only two such notes in the census, with this the first we've had. Fine-Very Fine, actually with a higher grade front and a bit of wallet stain on the reverse. Est. 200-400

    I suspect the low serial number helps the cause... seems to be more difficult than I had anticipated

    I would have thought one PA collector would have made a comment of some sort... we are not dealing with atomic secrets here.

    Why? Don't know anything about that bank and I am not familiar with every Lancaster County town. Picture would have been nice.

    Why?

    I thought it was a reasonable question and at least one PA specialist would have an answer or would share something based on their collecting experience...

    I'm not a Pennsylvania collector or expert but I can tell you, yes, the first title does command a premium due to it's scarcity.
