Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  It is not uncommon for a $10 brown back to represent the earliest and rarest currency issued by a national bank. There really are no tricks to determine the value of a national bank note like this. The exact value is really just based on a number of factors. The two most important variables are the condition and bank of issue. Please contact us for exact value information. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  We are surprised at how much the market for Washington national bank notes has softened since it peaked around 2006. It seems like the state has a lot to offer. First off, there are plenty of wealthy collectors living there. Geography really isn’t that important either, which is refreshing. The top 3% of the market is still very capable of being worth staggering amount of money, but it is the top 20% that we think should be worth more. You can challenge yourself by trying to collect just territorials, which would be quite difficult and expensive. Nice 1882 brown backs and 1902 red seals are scarce. There are even plenty of blue seal banks that are considered rare.
