1929 Type 1, $20 National Bank Note. The First NB, Tom Bean, TX. Charter #11019. PCGS Very Good 8 Apparent The census has remained static at 10 small size notes reported for more than a decade, although this piece now bumps the total reported to 11. It has a number of rust stains visible that came from too-long storage with a paperclip attached, but it is otherwise whole and solid for the grade. There are never enough notes to supply the demand for examples from this bank, which is the only issuing institution in this town that has always been near the top of collector want lists due to its interesting nomenclature. Tom Bean was a surveyor from Bonham, and he donated a fifty-acre tract for a townsite and railroad right-of-way in Grayson County.
