Basic Design:

Rarity and Value:  This is the most common denomination that you see on these early bank notes. However, don’t assume that they are all inexpensive. Usually even the most generic examples should be worth around $1,000. Based on the bank rarity and condition, the value could be many times that. We would always advise contacting us if you need an exact value. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  There are dozens, if not hundreds of truly rare and amazing notes from Kansas that should be worth two or three times more than what they sell for in today’s market. The problem is that Kansas had lots of national banks and it just doesn’t have a very strong collector base today. For example, a three known blue seal from Florida might sell for $10,000. A note with the exact same rarity from a Kansas bank might not even sell for $1,500. It is just one of those simple supply and demand things. The quantity of great material far outweighs the number of people looking to buy it. Let’s hope that prices will increase in the future as buyers start to make bargain purchases and accidently turn into long-term collectors.
