Let’s see some Ephemera
Most serious collectors not only collect notes but they also collect ephemera associated with the notes. I’m no exception. Bank bags, wallets, photographs, small coin banks etc. I love finding and collecting them.
I’ll start it off with a small metal bank issued by the National City Bank of Tampa. Please correct me if I’ve been misinformed, but my understanding is that the bank issued these to customers and kept the key. Customers would save their coins in the small metal bank and eventually return to the bank to have it opened. The bank would then suggest they deposit the coins into their account. The National banknote is framed behind museum glass with a photograph of the bank during the era when the note was circulating.
