Rarity and Value:  We once heard a collector refer to these as “rare as hens teeth.” While they may not be quite that rare, nice looking examples really are few and far between. You could buy a lot of things with $20 in the 1860s and 1870s. There was no incentive to hold a $20 bill just because you liked it. If you had one, then you spent it. These are not considered traditional rarities, but they are by all means rare. Contact us for 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 Pennsylvania is as good as it have ever been. The only problem is that the market has never been that great. More than 1,000 banks in Pennsylvania issued national currency. No one really has the budget or motivation to collect every single note from the state. Most collectors tend to focus on a specific county or city. Notes from Philadelphia and its surrounding suburbs have a close following, but most notes are plentiful. Some people really like Grange banks. All types of notes are so plentiful that you could focus on just brown backs or just red seals and still be able to assemble a diverse and interesting collection without spending a tremendous amount of money.
