Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  Most of these notes are fairly scarce. We generally see them sell for between $300 and $1,200. There is room for that price range to go higher. However, more valuable notes have to be in excellent condition or they need to be from rare banks. Please contact us if you would like to know the exact value of your note. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  Oklahoma was a territory until 1908. Anything issued before that date is called a territorial and is considered especially desirable. The one exception would be a 1902 red seal issued without the territorial status. The reality is that there are hundreds of scarce brown back, red seals, and blue seals from Oklahoma. The market is still generally strong, but it is down from the peak which was probably in 2011. We generally advise that first charter notes are the best notes available from any state. However, Oklahoma didn’t have any banks that issued first charters. Virtually every town in Oklahoma was tiny when nationals were originally issued. A large supply of currency was not needed to meet the demand of these small communities. That is why so bank notes are so scarce today.
