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:  Only 21 different towns in Delaware issued national bank notes. Some of them can be very scarce. Red seals from Delaware are very scarce. The town of issue is also very important. Wilmington is the largest city in Delaware, so notes from there tend to be the most common. With that said, the market for Delaware nationals can be unpredictable. Since so few notes were issued, long periods of time can go between offerings. Something that seems common on paper can occasionally sell for surprisingly high amounts of money. The opposite can also occasionally apply. The market is thin on the upper end, so things that should be rare don’t always command prices they should.
