Rarity and Value:  Hugh McCulloch twenty dollar blue seals as a type are not especially rare. You could buy a very common one for less than $100. Most people collect them based on which state or bank they are from. Some can be very rare. Most trade in the $100 to $400 range. However, you definitely want to make sure you understand what you have before you sell. Rare examples can be worth thousands of dollars. Contact us for an exact value. 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.
