FRBN

Small size Federal Reserve Bank Notes were issued in 1933 in denominations of $5 through $100. They were printed as part of an emergency issue in response to many bank failures at the time. These notes used the same paper stock as national bank notes of the era and looked fairly similar to those notes, though they came from distinctly different issuers.
