I think you have to further define what you are looking for? - large size, small size, obsoletes, MPCs, and on and on. Or is it a general book? If specialized to a specific group, you can get books with far more detail.
Looking for:
Any small size UNC $1 FRN with serial 16977961.
2009 $1 LX end -61 - CU.
1935A $1 CC HAWAII end -61 raw or PCGS CU or better, PMG ok.
World serial 00000061.
World replacements serials ending -61.

For all around PM collecting, I recommend Q David Bowers Whitman Encyclopedia of US Paper Money.

These are a few of my favorites along with the others listed above. There are also many online resources with auction results. If only buying one book ,Friedberg may be your best. Good luck.

We need a new book for small size, now that S/L is done and gone, and almost 10 years out of date. 

People say that the internet is a good place to get market prices, but some notes are so rare that they are not seen, or if so, one or two sales.

I know that you said large US....but let's not forget the really small US...they are fascinating and very collectible!

When something mentions a Shank number...what book is that being referenced against? I'm interested in a note but can find almost nothing on it except for 'shank' #

Apparently Shank number is a reference to the last name of a collector of obsolete notes. Not sure he ever published a book but apparently he made up a numbering system. Googled around and found a couple references in HA archives. Hope it helps. Interesting question.

Ugh, that's a tough answer to swallow but thank you 😂. I was really hoping for an index of some sort. I've tried the google machine too but no such luck. I have the "Whitman Encyclopedia of Obsolete Paper Money Volume 8 South Atlantic Part 3 - Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia" but the issuer in question isn't referenced in there. I'm not sure what else to reference.

Anyone know of any other authoritative sources that I could try checking against?

A reference from an eBay listing of which you may be looking at?
Oopps! Was relisted and sold?

This listing is for a 50-cent note on the Farmers Bank of Maryland / MD, 2.3.4 in the Kelly / Shank / Gordon (KSG) reference "Money and Banking in Maryland", R-7 rarity, and this is the plate note in that reference, also MD5G32 in Haxby.  Dated June 10, 1815.  Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society collection as indicated by matching condition and serial number of 4531 at lower left (as also seen in the KSG plate).

I like "Azpiazu's" last book and I was anxiously awaiting his update to that which would have included more info about Mules.
For error-notes, I like "Bart's" because he keeps it up-to-date!

Don Kelly recently wrote a new book on Obsolete Currency.  Perhaps if you talk with him he or his book might provide additional useful information.

If you're into Maryland notes, you probably have this book already.   You may be able to get it from the author at a better price if he still has some left.
