Rarity and Value:  Good luck finding many notes like this. Currently only two are known to exist. High denominations like this rarely show up any more these days. This will always be a rare national bank note. The value of any territorial is just based on its condition and the bank that printed it. Please contact us if you have questions regarding the value of your note. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  There is a very strong demand for territorial notes from Montana. Those can be first charters and some brown back notes. Montana became a state in 1889. Most territorials have long been discovered and are tightly held with collectors. Third charter notes (red seal and blue seals) seem to be out of favor with collectors right now. We really can’t explain why, but prices were definitely stronger for these notes ten years ago. In years past there has been lots of outside interest in Montana notes from collectors who hunted, skied, or otherwise vacationed there. Most serious collectors never lived in the state. You are going to see lots of notes from larger cities like Billings and Kalispell. Other notes should be assumed to be scarce until proven otherwise.
