Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  This is generally considered the most common first charter note available. However, don’t get the word common confused with cheap. Some of these notes can be extremely valuable. It really just depends on the condition and bank of issue. The most generic examples might only be worth several hundred dollars. Rarer examples could be worth many times more than that. 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 District of Columbia can either be issued from Georgetown or Washington. Only two banks were in Georgetown. A total of 27 different banks issued nationals in DC. At least three of the banks have yet to have any notes discovered that they issued. Notes from both cities are plentiful; however, that does not mean that they are always cheap. The bank of issue and the type of national bank note issued are both extremely important. You want to look for traditional rarities like high denominations and rare types. Don’t discount the signor either. You never know what important political figure might have signed nationals from that part of the country.
