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 District of Columbia can either be issued from Georgetown or Washington. Only two banks were in Georgetown. A total of 27 different banks issued nationals in DC. At least three of the banks have yet to have any notes discovered that they issued. Notes from both cities are plentiful; however, that does not mean that they are always cheap. The bank of issue and the type of national bank note issued are both extremely important. You want to look for traditional rarities like high denominations and rare types. Don’t discount the signor either. You never know what important political figure might have signed nationals from that part of the country.
