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:  Iowa is considered to be the birthplace of the national bank note collecting hobby. In fact the only museum dedicated to national currency is located in Iowa. The original dealers supporting our niche numismatic area lived and worked out of Iowa. That means that for almost six decades there have been collectors in Iowa trying to find great rarities from their home state. New and good discoveries from Iowa are few and far between these days. Most long terms collectors feel like they have seen it all before; and many times they are correct. When we think of Iowa, images of pen-signed notes from great town names (Spirit Lake, Hawkeye, Lost Nation, Jewell Junction, etc.) come to mind.
