Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  These aren’t traditionally thought of as especially rare bank notes. However, try to find an example in VF condition or better at will. It is tough to do. Many early banks only issued denominations of $5 and lower. Ten dollars went a long way in the 1860s and early 1870s. If you were fortunate enough to have a $10 bill then you probably spent it. That is why most examples tend to be heavily circulated. Contact us for value information. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  It is difficult to describe the Wisconsin national bank note market in one word. A huge collection was sold in 2008 and prices were generally thought to be strong then, but the market is likely off of those highs. Different parts of the state and different towns are always hot and other areas just don’t seem to have much of a following. We know collectors who only like Wisconsin river towns, or only like towns on the Great Lakes. We don’t generally think of Wisconsin as an especially developed state. However, it had 240 national banks in 131 different towns. There are dozens of ways to collect. It all depends on what you like. The notes that sell the best usually have an X factor. That X factor could be the type of note, the serial number, or the signor.
