Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  There is no single 1929 small size note that is rare as a type. The value comes from the serial number and bank of issue. The majority of notes are worth between $40 and $400. That range can certainly go higher for truly rare examples. Notes that have the serial number 000001 are in demand. That is really the only advice we can give here. Just contact us directly with pictures of what you have and we can tell you exactly how much it is worth. It is worth noting that 1929 marks the first year that national bank notes were the same size as paper money is today. These are also the only nationals to feature a portrait of Alexander Hamilton.

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.
