Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  These are not rare as a type. Some are only worth a few hundred dollars. You really just need to pay attention to the bank of issue and condition. Some examples can be worth thousands of dollars. It is also interesting to note that James Garfield was the first person to be featured prominently on a national bank note. Each state also has a unique seal on the back left hand side of each note. Some collectors try to collect a seal from each state. 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.
