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:  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.
