Used to be

Before federal reserve notes, bank notes stated where the gold or silver was located.. a $10 bill had the name of the bank printed on it, not where gold was minted, but where it was deposited.. it's what they had been doing since before the gold rush in CA..

on this wiki page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_United_States_do...

they show the bills but without the stamps.. I know about the stamps because we have a blown up copy of a $10 bill from what was a local bank (that later became Bank of America located in SF).
