Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  This is the most common denomination that you see on these early bank notes. However, don’t assume that they are all inexpensive. Usually even the most generic examples should be worth around $1,000. Based on the bank rarity and condition, the value could be many times that. We would always advise contacting us if you need an exact value. 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.
