Selling Old Texas National Bank Notes

Texas has an extremely large quantity of national banks that printed paper money. I’ve met a handful of serious Texas national banknote collectors during my time dealing and collecting myself. Some of these national banks printed very few notes, making their issue scarce.

Each bank I list below has detailed information about each bank:

  • how many dollars worth of national currency were printed
  • when the bank opened
  • when it stopped printing money
  • how many years it printed paper money for
  • how many types of national currency the bank issued
  • the charter number (to distinguish the bank with a number) and also the banks’ location (county).

We buy all types of Texas national bank notes from around the country. If you have an old bill from a Texas bank and you’re interested in selling it, we are very strong buyers of any condition note. As always, send us a clear photo of both the front and back of the bill and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours with our best offer.

Determining the Value of your Texas paper money

Figuring out how much your Texas banknote is worth is a combination of multiple factors that lead to determining the value of the banknote.

The first factor is supply and demand. Typically, the earlier dated Texas currency is worth more money; as long as the supply is low for the particular bill. 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. 

For example, The First National Bank Of Galveston, also known as charter number 1566, printed $4,368,660 dollars worth of national currency. This may seem like a lot of money in dollars, but it’s just above average. With a bank that issued Texas national bank notes like this, it’s hit or miss when knowing if the bill will be valuable or not.

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 a Texas national bank note. We’ve paid a few hundred dollars for a poor condition example Texas 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 a Texas national banknotes value is the market. Markets are constantly fluctuating for better or worse. When you buy or sell national banknotes from Texas, 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.

We will respond within 24 hours with a free appraisal and our best offer if you want to sell your banknote.
