The Houston Heritage Collection of National Bank Notes 1863 thru 1935. 11.25"x8.75", 125 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed. A green back-sure you know what they are but how about a Brown Back? The five notes on front of this cover are BROWN BACKS. Issued by the U.S. Government for use of the national banks chartered between 1882 and 1902. Except for that 20 year period, all other national bank notes from 1863 until 1935 (when they were recalled) were green backs. As are the Federal Reserves notes of today. Unless you are over 75, you may not know they were ever in use, or ever existed, hence the cover is brown to emphasize their color. The notes illustrated are five different denominations, issued by five different Houston banks, making a complete denomination set, the only such set in existence today. The brown reverse or back of these notes is rather striking in appearance. The charter number is in large figures, in center of the note. The state seal of Texas in panel to left and an American Eagle on right panel. See illustration D-1 on page 11. The face of these notes are identical to those of First Charter period, except the $5.00 denomination, which carries the picture of President Garfield, who was assassinated in 1881 just seven months after his election.
