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:  Iowa is considered to be the birthplace of the national bank note collecting hobby. In fact the only museum dedicated to national currency is located in Iowa. The original dealers supporting our niche numismatic area lived and worked out of Iowa. That means that for almost six decades there have been collectors in Iowa trying to find great rarities from their home state. New and good discoveries from Iowa are few and far between these days. Most long terms collectors feel like they have seen it all before; and many times they are correct. When we think of Iowa, images of pen-signed notes from great town names (Spirit Lake, Hawkeye, Lost Nation, Jewell Junction, etc.) come to mind.
