Banks, Bankers, and Trust Companies [excerpt]

     The question of placing the portrait of the late President McKinley on National bank notes is now being considered by the Treasury officials. The $5 bills have had no portrait other than that of President Garfield since his death in 1882. It [119][120] is expected that the coming Congress will adopt portraits of both President Harrison and President McKinley on the new issues to distinguish the 5s and 10s.
