Rarity and Value:  Your typical 1902 $100 blue seal is from a large bank, usually in a larger city. You can buy a generic example for between $450 and $900. Some notes can be worth a lot more than that. However, they would have to be from a rare bank or be in especially high grade. 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:  The market for national bank notes from Rhode Island is about the same as every other New England state. There really aren’t any rare towns. However, there are rare banks and rare types are always in demand. First charter $2s, $20s, $50s, and $100s always sell for good money. Most collectors also like high grade notes no matter the type. You are going to see lots of notes from Providence. In fact only twenty-two other towns even had a national bank that issued currency. Rhode Island also has a rich history of banking during the obsolete era. Many people who collect national bank notes also like obsolete bank notes and colonial currency. Rhode Island definitely has a rich numismatic history.
