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:  If you follow the market for national bank notes then you know that it is cyclical. In the 1990’s good notes from Kentucky were worth as much money as notes from any state. However, within an 18-month period in the early part of the 21st century the two largest collectors dumped their collections and there was no one else there to prop up prices. To make matters worse, all types of notes from Kentucky are relatively plentiful from first charters to red seals. However, if you study the market then you will see lots of great notes that are still relatively affordable. We personally love all of the fancifully named towns and notes from the old forgotten mining communities.
