Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  Very few national banks had the right criteria to issue a high denomination like this. That makes these notes scarce. There are two varieties. One is really scarce. If the back says “One Hundred Dollars” at the center in large print then you have a great find. Most examples will say “1882 – 1908”. Even the most generic examples should be worth a couple thousand dollars. Please contact us for exact values. 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.
