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:  Iowa is considered to be the birthplace of the national bank note collecting hobby. In fact the only museum dedicated to national currency is located in Iowa. The original dealers supporting our niche numismatic area lived and worked out of Iowa. That means that for almost six decades there have been collectors in Iowa trying to find great rarities from their home state. New and good discoveries from Iowa are few and far between these days. Most long terms collectors feel like they have seen it all before; and many times they are correct. When we think of Iowa, images of pen-signed notes from great town names (Spirit Lake, Hawkeye, Lost Nation, Jewell Junction, etc.) come to mind.
