Charter: 7654

Year Opened: 1905

The First National Bank of Lovelock does not really have the most interesting back story like some of the other Nevada banks. It wasn’t the bank of choice for a boomtown and it holds no significance in terms of rarity. In fact today it might be more famous for being O.J. Simpson’s current home – he is imprisoned in Lovelock.

The First National Bank of Lovelock did survive the great depression. It was originally closed by the state in 1932 for the bank holiday. When it reopened it was quite successful and operated as The First National Bank of Lovelock until 1955 when it was bought by The First National Bank of Nevada of Reno. During its existence it issued 1902 red seals and blue seals along with 1929 notes. Currently there is a literally handful of 1902 notes known and close to a dozen small-size 1929 notes. There are likely many notes from Lovelock waiting to be discovered – with a 1902 red seal being the most valuable.
