Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  This is generally considered the most common first charter note available. However, don’t get the word common confused with cheap. Some of these notes can be extremely valuable. It really just depends on the condition and bank of issue. The most generic examples might only be worth several hundred dollars. Rarer examples could be worth many times more than that. Contact us for details. 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.
