Rarity and Value:  If you have one of these then please be sure to check the back of it. If the back says “Fifty Dollars” in large type then you have a very rare find. If the back says “1882-1908” then you have the more common variety. The good news that even the common variety is still relatively scarce and should be worth at least a couple thousand dollars, or more. Please contact us for details. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  National bank notes from Hawaii can be broken down into two groups. There are notes from Honolulu and there is everything else. Of course the great white whale from Hawaii is a 1902 red seal. Brown backs, 1882 blue seals, 1902 blue seals, and small size notes are all relatively available. Only five banks in Hawaii issued national currency. Lots of people like to collect a single note from all fifty states. There are only so many notes from Hawaii to go around. That means that notes that are technically very common can sell for decent money because lots of people need them for collections. Notes from Hawaii are technically all territorials, so that adds even further appeal.
