Tennessee National Bank Notes

        Tennessee issued national bank notes from 196 banks in 91 different towns. Collecting Tennessee national bank notes can prove to be difficult with a few exceptions.  Notes from towns outside of Memphis, Knoxville, Nashville, and Chattanooga can be costly.  Many locations in Tennessee that issued national bank notes did so for a very brief period of time and that can make their acquisition quite difficult.  Unlike other southern states, there is not a particular type of national bank note from Tennessee that is especially rare or valuable.  Instead the key to value in Tennessee is location.   The depression was especially rough in Tennessee; this led to many bank closings in 1930 and 1931.  Some of the same banks that closed those years issued very few 1929 notes, making some small size national bank notes from Tennessee rare.
