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:  National bank notes from the Midwest typically struggle to sell for the same prices as equally rare notes from western and southern states. The plethora of notes available from Chicago banks really brings the value of many other notes from Illinois down. There are still plenty of collectors looking to buy notes from the wealthy suburbs in Chicagoland. Even Illinois banks in the St. Louis metro area have a close following. However, don’t expect rare notes from small farming communities to be worth tremendous amounts of money. They just don’t have a following amongst the people in the hobby who are paying up for interesting notes. The supply tends to outweigh the demand in today’s market.
