Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  A portrait of John Jay is on the front of each third charter national bank note. 1902 $100 red seals are very rare as a type. Only around 125 are known to exist. Even notes from large banks in heavily circulated condition should still be worth around $4,000. That price can get much higher if the note is from a rare bank, rare state, or is in high grade. Please contact us for details. 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.
