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:  If you want a collecting challenge, try to find notes from towns besides New Orleans that are in VF condition or better. Many notes from Louisiana are just plain scarce. The state itself is fun to collect. The banks in New Orleans printed enough money that lots of interesting types are available for reasonable prices. However, it will be tough to find notes with great eye appeal. We see lots of notes with faded signatures. The weather and humidity have not been kind to the survivors waiting to be found. In fact, Hurricane Katrina severely damaged at least two collections we know about. We have handed some great Louisiana rarities, but they are still few and far between.
