I'm trying to determine the year that the $1 National Bank Note was first issued. FR-380 has the Colby-Spinner signature pairing -- can anyone tell what year span this was in use?

1864 to 1867 -- perfect! Thank you, Steve!

That is limited by Colby, Aug 11, 1864 to Sep 21, 1867.
But beware - Huntoon will tell you that you can't trust the sigs.

Per chapter 4 in Huntoon, the first $1 and $2 were placed into circulation in 1865.  Per chapter 23, table 9 the Comptroller received the first 1-1-1-2 sheet on March 28, 1865.  These were for the FNB of Washington DC (charter 26) and a good guess is that they were issued to the bank shortly thereafter. 

FWIW, the NB Act of June 3, 1864, which authorized the lower denominations, required that upon resumption of specie payments these denominations would no longer be issued.  Resumption occurred on Jan 1, 1879.
Always interested in St Louis MO & IL metro and Evansville IN paper money, scrip, financial docs, banking ephemera, etc.  Also collect Latvian 1915 - 1940 city and national paper money by block letter/variety

Well, this is even more specific -- thank you! I've been trying to zero in on a year that the "Landing of the Pilgrims" was engraved. It was engraved by Charles Burt for American Bank Note and appears on the back of the first charter $1s. So, given the date of the authorizing act and when the first notes were issued, it looks like late 1864 is pretty likely.

I love this vignette and unfortunately over 90 pct of all the aces have a hard fold right down the middle through it ... grrrrr
