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:  We have handled a lot of great notes from Arkansas. There are lots of rare Arkansas notes, but you need more than just rarity to get the most money. Collectors are looking for notes with lots of eye appeal. Arkansas has a small population. Most of the better notes wind up in collections that are not in the state. Brown backs and first charter notes are tough to find. It is even tougher to find those types of notes in XF condition or better. We usually advise that notes from small towns have the most value. However, plenty of notes from larger cities like Fort Smith and Little Rock can sell for just as much money as notes from tiny communities.
