$5 Red Seal Bank Notes

Five Dollar 1902 Red Seals

rare 1902 five dollar red seal paper money
Ben Harrison’s portrait was printed on all five dollar red seals. These notes were printed on sheets of four. So the serial number in the bottom left corner was used for at least four different bills. Most banks that printed $5 bills also issued tens and twenties. As with any $5 bill, the value is all based on the condition and bank of issue.

$10 Red Seal Bank Notes

Ten Dollar 1902 Red Seals

rare 1902 ten dollar red seal paper money
William McKinley is featured on all ten dollar red seal national bank notes. The ten dollar denomination was a favorite of national banks back when these were originally issued. More $10 notes are known to exist today than any other denomination. Contact us with pictures of your specific bill and we can help you find the value.

$20 Red Seal Bank Notes

Twenty Dollar 1902 Red Seals

rare 1902 twenty dollar red seal paper money
Twenty dollar red seals are actually fairly rare. Unfortunately, they really don’t trade for any more money than their $10 counterparts. Series of 1902 $20 bills all have a portrait of Hugh McCulloch on them. As with any national bank note, the value is based purely on the serial number, issuing bank, and condition.

$50 Red Seal Bank Notes

Fifty Dollar 1902 Red Seals

rare 1902 fifty dollar red seal paper money
As we have previously established, all $50 national bank notes are rare. Red seals are no exception. Somewhere around 100 are known to exist today. That is a total for all banks in the entire country. The denomination was rarely issued by national banks; so very few still exist. John Sherman is on the front of each note.

$100 Red Seal Bank Notes

One Hundred Dollar 1902 Red Seals

rare 1902 one hundred dollar red seal paper money
One Hundred dollar red seal bank notes from the series of 1902 are always a favorite among collectors. John Jay is pictured on the front of each bill. High denominations like this were rarely issued. $100 was also a lot of money back in the early 20th century. For those two reasons, notes like this are rare and valuable today.
