Rarity and Value:  It is easy to talk about these. All you need to know is that they rare and valuable. Very few banks in the 1860s and 1870s had the need for such a high denomination. Furthermore, very few people in that same time period had a net worth of $50, much less the ability to ever own a $50 bill for more than a few hours. Only about 40 notes like this are known to exist today (and that is across all banks in the country). Values start at $10,000 and go up from there. Contact us if you need an exact price. Don’t forget to check the serial number. Number 1 notes always sell for nice premiums.

Current Market Analysis:  The market for national bank notes from Rhode Island is about the same as every other New England state. There really aren’t any rare towns. However, there are rare banks and rare types are always in demand. First charter $2s, $20s, $50s, and $100s always sell for good money. Most collectors also like high grade notes no matter the type. You are going to see lots of notes from Providence. In fact only twenty-two other towns even had a national bank that issued currency. Rhode Island also has a rich history of banking during the obsolete era. Many people who collect national bank notes also like obsolete bank notes and colonial currency. Rhode Island definitely has a rich numismatic history.
