A fascinating relic of banking in the early American territories, this extraordinarily rare $5 banknote hails from the First National Bank of Bozeman and is the only one of its kind in existence. Established in Montana territory in 1872, the Bank of Bozeman only operated for a six-year period, and during that time it issued just $91,600 in notes under the National Banking System. By 1915, just $560 remained of the original currency — the rest had been redeemed and subsequently destroyed. To find a "Territorial" note from Montana, of which there are only 39 known survivors, is exceedingly rare. This example, however, is the only known existing note from the small territorial bank of Bozeman. As the lone survivor from this bank, and issued before statehood, this ranks among the best Territorials in Montana and from all territories combined.
