The First National Bank of Nez Perce, Idaho

The First National Bank of Nez Perce, Idaho

The First National Bank of Nez Perce, Idaho is one of about seven banks in Idaho that issued currency for which no currency is currently reported to exist.  This lack of currency is due to the fact that the bank only issued about one thousand bank notes.

The First National Bank of Nez Perce only issued 1902 red seal national bank notes.  The bank was open from March 1903 until November 1906.  To add even more appeal to currency from Nez Perce, The First National Bank was the only bank in the county.

The First National Bank of Nez Perce was opened by a Canada native and journeyman Thomas M Mockler.  Joseph A Schultz was the first cashier of the bank.  When Mockler left the bank Schultz moved up to president and Phillip J Miller stepped in as cashier, in 1906, for one year before the bank closed.  Mockler never had children.  Both Schultz and Miller had very large families.
