Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  We don’t traditionally think of 1902 $20 blue seals as being scarce, but they are very rare as territorials. Currently only about 20 are known to exist. These were not printed until 1908; by that time there were very few territories left. The value of any note like this is largely based on the condition and issuing location. Most are worth thousands of dollars, some can be worth even more than that. Contact us for an exact quote. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  Puerto Rico (aka Porto Rico as the bank notes say) is a true outlier when it comes to national bank notes. It is the only location that issued notes that is still a territory today. At the time of issue it was really no different than Hawaii, Alaska, and even Arizona and New Mexico. Of course all of those places have since become states. Porto Rico’s single national bank was in San Juan. It only printed 1902 red seals and 1902 blue seals. Surprisingly, blue seals are many times rarer than red seals. Notes from Porto Rico are on a lot of want-lists. They are just really unique and different. You don’t even really have to be a national bank note collector to understand how rare and special these notes are. So long story short, the market is good!
