Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  William McKinley is shown on the front of all 1902 $10 bills. This is the single most common type of large-size national bank note. Some of these are only worth around $50. Some can be worth $500, and others still can sell for more than $5,000. It is all about the bank rarity. Sadly, there is no place online to see if you have a rare bank. The best advice is to just check with an expert. We happily answer questions about all national bank notes. Contact us to get the value of yours. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  The market for West Virginia nationals suffers from the fact that most collectors in the state don’t have limitless budgets to work with. Wealthy national bank note collectors who don’t live in West Virginia really have no connection to the state to make them want to collect it. We have had some really rare and beautiful notes from West Virginia that we feel like should have been worth two times more than what we eventually sold the notes for. It is surprising, but lots of high grade and early notes exist from the state. We think the history surrounding the small coal towns that issued many WV notes is especially interesting. Sadly though, we don’t see the market getting stronger any time soon.
