Rarity and Value:  It is not uncommon for a $10 brown back to represent the earliest and rarest currency issued by a national bank. There really are no tricks to determine the value of a national bank note like this. The exact value is really just based on a number of factors. The two most important variables are the condition and bank of issue. Please contact us for exact value information. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  There are a lot of things to think about when you are trying to value a note from Colorado. Is the note from a ski resort area, does the town have a rich frontier or mining history, is it from a wealthy Denver suburb, or was issued while Colorado was still a territory? There was a time when a few very rich collectors were paying absurd amounts of money for notes from Colorado. Today prices are much more predictable. Brown backs and first charters always sell well. Notes that are unique for the town are still worth very large sums of money. Just remember that past results are no guarantee of future success. Sadly, you can’t bring back the boom days, but good notes are still in demand.
