How much is my Arkansas National Bank Note Worth?

There will be no straightforward answer when it comes to the value of Arkansas banknotes. A lot of the time, these notes are relatively cheap and affordable. However, there are always exceptions to the rule. We’ve paid thousands of dollars for extremely rare examples from Arkansas. Also, the better the condition the more money it will likely bring.

The first factor is supply and demand. Typically, the earlier dated Arkansas currency is worth more money; as long as the supply is low for the particular bill. The market is constantly fluctuating, which makes pinpointing an evergreen value impossible.

The reality for some banknotes is there can be extremely low supply, but there are no collectors interested in the bank. Some states that issued national currency have a larger collector base than others, making their value significantly increase.

Each bank issued different amounts of currency, depending on the demands for the paper money back in the early 1900s in the specific town. 

Some Arkansas banks issued a lot of paper money. While other banks, like First National Bank of Fort Smith, issued a small amount. Finding a note from the Fort Smith national bank would be a true rarity which we would pay thousands of dollars for.

We wrote a whole in-depth guide about fancy serial numbers you can check out here, but without going into too much detail many collectors enjoy rare serial numbers. For example, the first banknotes printed always start with Serial Number 1. If you have a banknote with a low serial number like Serial Number 1 through 9, there’s a high likelihood your banknote is valuable, regardless of condition.

Condition is a key factor when determining the value of an Arkansas national bank note. We’ve paid a few hundred dollars for a poor condition example Arkansas banknote when in the past we’ve paid quite literally thousands of dollars for the same banknote in pristine condition.

The final variable when determining an Arkansas national banknotes value is the market. Markets are constantly fluctuating for better or worse. When you buy or sell national banknotes from Arkansas, it really depends on the market and how much money it brings. We will help you with your old paper money, contact us for more information.

These are the variables to take into consideration: supply & demand, condition (overall eye appeal matters), the market, and the serial number. If you’re unsure how valuable your Arkansas National Bank Note is, send us a clear photo of the front and back of the bill. We will respond within 24 hours with a free appraisal and our best offer if you want to sell your banknote.
