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:  The market for national bank notes from Pennsylvania is as good as it have ever been. The only problem is that the market has never been that great. More than 1,000 banks in Pennsylvania issued national currency. No one really has the budget or motivation to collect every single note from the state. Most collectors tend to focus on a specific county or city. Notes from Philadelphia and its surrounding suburbs have a close following, but most notes are plentiful. Some people really like Grange banks. All types of notes are so plentiful that you could focus on just brown backs or just red seals and still be able to assemble a diverse and interesting collection without spending a tremendous amount of money.
