Have You Ever Heard Of The Fort Stanwix National Bank Of Rome?

Have you ever heard of The Fort Stanwix National Bank Of Rome? For over 32 years, 1865 -1896, Rome New York printed $1,063,740 dollars worth of national currency.

I just learned about this the other night from my father, an avid coin collector, he bought this check off of eBay:

After doing a quick web search I was able to find out a lot more information.

During its life, The Fort Stanwix National Bank Of Rome issued 11 different types and denominations of national currency. The Fort Stanwix National Bank Of Rome in New York printed $1,063,740 dollars worth of national currency. Over $1,000,000 face value is a lot of money. However, some types and denominations of currency from this bank could still be rare.”

This bank located locally in Rome was responsible for over 11,660 sheets of $1 national bank notes, 11,660 sheets of $2 national bank notes, 10,900 sheets of $5 national bank notes, 2,070 sheets of $10 national bank notes, and 2,070 sheets of $20 national bank notes. Of course the bank printed other bills through-out it’s run as well.

At this moment, a location is unknown to this author. Many different websites just list “Oneida County” as a location. Also, if you’re looking to buy these notes, get ready to drop some major coin.

Did you know Rome had this? I thought it was very cool something like this was in our own backyard, and didn’t even know it.
