1865-1902 SERIES LARGE SIZE PENNSYLVANIA NATIONALS. 
Prior to the American Civil War, state banks issued their own banknotes. During the Civil War, in 1863, the National Banking Act established a system of National Banks which were empowered to issue National Bank Notes subject to federal oversight. The chartering of banks and administrative control over the issuance of National Bank Notes were the responsibility of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.

1865-1902 SERIES ALL OTHER STATE LARGE SIZE NATIONALS.
National Bank Notes are comprised of six very distinct series: 1) Original Series, 2) Series of 1875, 3) Series of 1882, 4) Series of 1902, and 5 & 6 (Small Size) Series of 1929-Type 1 and Type 2. These series are often grouped into Charter Periods with Charter numbers on the notes; The First Charter, Original Series and Series 1875, Second Charter, Series of 1882; Third Charter, Series of 1902; and Small Size. The Terms of a Charter Period and Charter Number refer to the issuing authority of each particular bank. The National Currency Act of 1863 provided that banks (organized under its provisions) be chartered as National Banks for a period of 20 years










1929 SERIES SMALL SIZE PENNSYLVANIA
National Bank Notes were originally authorized by an Act of Congress Feb. 25, 1863. Their issue peaked in 1933, when about $900 million of these notes were in circulation. Issue ceased in 1935, when the bonds backing the notes were redeemed and notes recalled. By 1960 the volume of nationals reported in circulation had shrunk to approximately $50 million. Through the years many notes have been lost or destroyed. It’s very rare to see one in circulation today, unless one is spent when a collector dies and relatives don’t understand their collector value. 
1929 SERIES ALL OTHER STATE SMALL SIZE NATIONALS.
During the small size national note era, nearly 3,200 bank titles appeared on $5 notes of Type 1, and 2,700 bank titles appeared on notes of Type 2. Banks in each of the then 48 states, territories of Alaska and Hawaii, and District of Columbia issued each type. Volume of $5s was more than 170 million notes, totaling $851,146,935


FEDERAL RESERVE BANK NOTES.
As large size notes, they were first issued in 1914 with a design that shared elements with both the National Bank Notes and the Federal Reserve Notes of the time, but as small size notes they were issued only as an emergency issue in 1933 using the same paper stock used for National Bank Notes. As a result, the pre-printed "President," for the signature of the president of a national bank, was overprinted with a black bar since Federal Reserve Banks had governors, not presidents. This emergency issue was prompted by the public hoarding of cash because of the many bank failures happening at the time. This also limited the ability of the National Banks to issue notes of their own. They were discontinued in 1945.
