Rarity and Value:  It is easy to talk about these. All you need to know is that they rare and valuable. Very few banks in the 1860s and 1870s had the need for such a high denomination. Furthermore, very few people in that same time period had a net worth of $50, much less the ability to ever own a $50 bill for more than a few hours. Only about 40 notes like this are known to exist today (and that is across all banks in the country). Values start at $10,000 and go up from there. Contact us if you need an exact price. 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.
