Rarity and Value:  There are two types of 1882 blue seal national bank notes. The back either says five dollars or it says 1882 – 1908. The value of these notes is really just based on the condition and bank of issue. Some can be worth as little as a few hundred dollars. The rarest notes usually top out at a couple thousand dollars. Please contact us for details. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  National bank notes from the Midwest typically struggle to sell for the same prices as equally rare notes from western and southern states. The plethora of notes available from Chicago banks really brings the value of many other notes from Illinois down. There are still plenty of collectors looking to buy notes from the wealthy suburbs in Chicagoland. Even Illinois banks in the St. Louis metro area have a close following. However, don’t expect rare notes from small farming communities to be worth tremendous amounts of money. They just don’t have a following amongst the people in the hobby who are paying up for interesting notes. The supply tends to outweigh the demand in today’s market.
