Rarity and Value:  It is currently thought that only about 40 of these are known to exist from all banks across the country. These were all printed before 1875. You can appreciate that $100 was a tremendous amount of money during that time period of United States history. For the most part, only large banks in major metropolitan areas had the ability and desire to issue such a high denomination. Prices start at $10,000 and go up from there. Contact us for details. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  National bank notes from the Midwest typically struggle to sell for the same prices as equally rare notes from western and southern states. The plethora of notes available from Chicago banks really brings the value of many other notes from Illinois down. There are still plenty of collectors looking to buy notes from the wealthy suburbs in Chicagoland. Even Illinois banks in the St. Louis metro area have a close following. However, don’t expect rare notes from small farming communities to be worth tremendous amounts of money. They just don’t have a following amongst the people in the hobby who are paying up for interesting notes. The supply tends to outweigh the demand in today’s market.
