Book DescriptionThe hobby of collecting paper money is red hot. More and more people are becoming interested in this fascinating hobby combining banking, history, art, and even genealogy. Hobbyists have taken to collecting national bank notes as a fun way to stay connected to their hometown. National Bank Notes from Bowling Green, KY assumes the reader has a basic understanding of national bank notes and explores the author's hometown currency from Bowling Green, Kentucky.

This non-fictionhighlights over 12 years of work by the author including dozens of interviews and hundreds of research hours. The research involved cataloging surviving bank notes, documenting history of the banks, and finding biographies of the bank's officers who signed the bank notes. The research pulled extensively from the U.S. National Archives, Smithsonian Institution, Kentucky Library, and Comptroller of Currency Annual Reports.

From 1874 to 1935 Bowling Green supported six national banks, with notes surviving from four of the six banks. Notes from the Citizens National Bank and American National Bank are fairly common, while notes from the Liberty National Bank and Bowling Green National Bank are quite rare. The Warren National Bank and National Southern Kentucky Bank have no surviving notes. The author loves the hobby of collecting paper money and shares that enthusiasm with his readers.
