Texas – The First National Bank of Booker (Never Issued)

Originally founded as La Kemp, Oklahoma in 1909, the town relocated into the Texas panhandle when the Panhandle and Santa Fe Railways was built in 1917. The town was renamed Booker for one of the railroad engineers.

On October 21, 1919 records from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) indicate that 200 sheets of 10-10-10-20 Series of 1902 Plain Back notes were printed and delivered to the OCC. The bank never actually issued national currency.
