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:  Most people collect national bank notes based on which city the bank was in. The market is a little bit different for notes from Massachusetts. Very few towns in Massachusetts are technically rare. However, some types are plenty rare. For example, it may be very easy to find a red seal or blue seal from a bank, but brown backs and first charters could be rare. We should also mention that notes from Boston are typically discounted a little bit compared to other towns. Sadly, notes from Boston are viewed as common and not as desirable, even if they are rare for the bank. Oddly though, notes from towns that are in the Boston metro area actually have a relatively close following.
