Rarity and Value:  Ben Harrison is shown on each third charter $5 bank note. Five dollar red seals are scarce. Most banks chose to issue $10 and $20 bills only. We can’t give you an exact value for your red seal on our page here. Values are based on the condition and bank of issue. Generic examples sell for around $400. A large majority will be worth more than. Some could be worth considerably more. Please 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.
