Rarity and Value:  Most 1902 $50 blue seals you see are from fairly large banks and bigger cities. The most generic ones are worth between $400 and $800. There is certainly room for that value to increase. Notes from rare banks or notes that are in especially high grade can be worth more than $1,000. Sometimes the bank doesn’t even have to be rare, the type could be rare for the state. Please contact us for pricing details. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  In the early part of the 21st century notes from California were especially hot. The reality is that most collectors who follow the state have been collecting for decades. So you have to have something really special to achieve the prices we were seeing ten years ago, because most collectors have very few holes in their collections left to fill. There were lots of blue seal banks in California that seem rare, but they don’t always bring values commiserate with their perceived rarity. The location of the bank also matters. Traditionally notes from the bay area and San Diego have been especially popular. It should go without saying that national gold bank notes from California have a special place in most currency collections.
