Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  These are pretty scarce notes. Not many banks chose to issue such a high denomination in the late 19th century. The most generic examples in circulated condition are still worth around $3,000 each. There is a lot of room for that price to get higher. The condition and bank of issue are both extremely important. Contact us for details. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  There are a lot of things to think about when you are trying to value a note from Colorado. Is the note from a ski resort area, does the town have a rich frontier or mining history, is it from a wealthy Denver suburb, or was issued while Colorado was still a territory? There was a time when a few very rich collectors were paying absurd amounts of money for notes from Colorado. Today prices are much more predictable. Brown backs and first charters always sell well. Notes that are unique for the town are still worth very large sums of money. Just remember that past results are no guarantee of future success. Sadly, you can’t bring back the boom days, but good notes are still in demand.
