Rarity and Value:  There is nothing especially rare about this type of money showing Ben Harrison. The rarity is all based on the condition and bank of issue. Your most generic $5 blue seals are going to sell for around $60. Common but more interesting notes sell for between $100 and $500. The upper end of the market is reserved for the rare stuff; and they can sell for thousands of dollars. The great news is that there are lots of rare banks out there. Many great discoveries are made everyday. Please contact us for pricing 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.
