An All Time Favorite Bank Note
We bought this in September of 2010 for more than $20,000. It is still one of our favorite pieces of rare paper money.
What's New At Rare Currency?
We recently bought this Abbeville, SC bank note. The condition could be better, but bank notes from small Southern towns are rare.. We paid $2,500.
What Makes Currency Rare and Valuable?
Condition: We all should know that condition is extremely important when it comes to valuing rare currency. The same thing goes for coin values. For example, an 1886 $5 bill in perfect condition might sell for $30,000. The same note in circulated condition might only be worth $1,000. Number Known To Exist: You generally only see quantities "known to exist" quoted when dealing with very rare type notes or national bank notes. There is a huge price gap between a piece of currency where only one is known to exist, and a note where twenty are known to exist. Popularity with Collectors: Some currency, despite not being especially rare, can be very popular with collectors. This is just known as supply and demand. If collectors want something then it will sell for more money.
