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 best notes from Connecticut were issued prior to 1900. Some 1902 red seals have the chance to be worth good money, but they are still relatively common for the type. Very few blue seals from Connecticut are considered scarce or valuable. The same applies to small size notes from 1929. You want to look out for traditional rarities like first charter deuces. Denominations higher than $20 are also scarce. There are lots of beautiful notes from Connecticut that can be bought for very reasonable prices. Generally speaking, the type of note is more important than the town. This is common for banks in New England.
