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:  Most notes from Alabama are heavily circulated. This state has always been underprivileged economically, so people couldn’t afford to hold currency just for the sake of saving it. Any note in XF condition or better should sell for a nice premium. First charter notes and denominations higher than $20 are scarce. Most towns in Alabama are small. You really can’t say that notes from small towns are rare, but if you get the right mix of grade and rarity, then you have a great find. Notes from Alabama have been more popular in years past, but there is still a chance for the good stuff to sell for thousands of dollars.
