Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  William McKinley is shown on the front of all 1902 $10 bills. This is the single most common type of large-size national bank note. Some of these are only worth around $50. Some can be worth $500, and others still can sell for more than $5,000. It is all about the bank rarity. Sadly, there is no place online to see if you have a rare bank. The best advice is to just check with an expert. We happily answer questions about all national bank notes. Contact us to get the value of yours. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  In the early part of the 21st century notes from California were especially hot. The reality is that most collectors who follow the state have been collecting for decades. So you have to have something really special to achieve the prices we were seeing ten years ago, because most collectors have very few holes in their collections left to fill. There were lots of blue seal banks in California that seem rare, but they don’t always bring values commiserate with their perceived rarity. The location of the bank also matters. Traditionally notes from the bay area and San Diego have been especially popular. It should go without saying that national gold bank notes from California have a special place in most currency collections.
