Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  John Sherman is pictured on the front of each third charter $50 bill. Right now there are only about 100 1902 $50 red seals known to exist! That means that even generic examples should sell for a few thousand dollars. If you have a note from a rare bank or rare state, that also happens to be in great condition, then the value could easily be in excess of $10,000. Please contact us for exact values. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  All first charter bank notes from Idaho are very scarce. Brown backs can either be issued as territorials or as state notes. Territorials are of course far more desirable. However, even state notes are still in demand. There are a surprising number of nice red seals known from Idaho. However, that doesn’t mean that they are cheap. Of course the bank of issue is always very important. Most notes you see are from Boise. Notes from smaller towns are going to be more appealing to most collectors. Towns that have ties to Native American tribes like Nez Perce, Blackfoot, etc. are always very popular. There are plenty of notes from small farming towns that can be worth big money.
