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:  Most people collect national bank notes based on which city the bank was in. The market is a little bit different for notes from Massachusetts. Very few towns in Massachusetts are technically rare. However, some types are plenty rare. For example, it may be very easy to find a red seal or blue seal from a bank, but brown backs and first charters could be rare. We should also mention that notes from Boston are typically discounted a little bit compared to other towns. Sadly, notes from Boston are viewed as common and not as desirable, even if they are rare for the bank. Oddly though, notes from towns that are in the Boston metro area actually have a relatively close following.
