Rarity and Value:  There are about 500 bank notes like this known to exist. That total is for every bank in the country though. Each note is valued based on its own individual merits. The most important factors are the bank of issue and the condition. Some banks are relatively common and others are quite scarce. High grade notes from this series are also rarely encountered. We consider XF or better to be high grade. Please contact us for details. 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.
