$10 First Charter National Bank Notes

Ten Dollar Original Series National Bank Note Value

Original Series $10 National Bank Note

The first ten dollar national bank notes issued were called first charter notes. Depending on the year printed, they will either have a spiked red seal (pictured above) or a rounded red seal. There are other small differences that can determine the price one will sell for, but the main factor will always be the condition, bank, type, and serial number.

Value: A poor condition $10 first charter national bank note will bring about $650. Depending on the bank, a better condition note will bring about $3,500. Sometimes the value of these bills can be over $13,000 if its a good bank and great condition.

 

$10 National Gold Bank Notes

Picture of Ten Dollar Gold National Bank Note

Ten Dollar Gold National Bank Note

This ten dollar national gold bank note is unique and special because they were only issued for banks in California. It is very unusual to find high-grade condition gold bank notes. The actual paper itself on these tend to be a bit more, well, gold in color compared to other issues. At the top, you will read “Redeemable in Gold Coin” which also makes this national unique. After the gold boom in California, these notes were circulated heavily among the people. Notes backed by gold were always preferred over other non-metal backed currencies. This is another one of my favorite types to collect simply because you could redeem them in gold coins, which most collectors find really cool.

Ten Dollar 1882 Brown Back Territorial National Bank Note Value

1882 $10 brown back national bank notes are some of my favorite and one of the most popular among collectors. These ten dollar brown backs have a very similar look to the first charter notes above. All of these $10 bills will have a round brown seal with a brown charter number. The serial numbers will always be a bright red color. Prices for brown back nationals will depend on condition, bank, and serial number.

Ten Dollar 1882 Blue Seal Date Back National Bank Note

1882 $10 blue seal date back national bank notes are one of the least commonly collected $10 nationals. Keep in mind that this doesn’t necessarily mean they can’t be valuable. As you can see from the picture we provided above, the back of the bill has “1882 – 1908” engraved at the center. Hence their name “date back” national bank notes.

Ten Dollar 1882 Blue Seal Value Back National Bank Note

The series of 1882 value back nationals look similar to the date back nationals in many aspects. As you can see from the image above, these $10 bills have “Ten Dollars” and they are called value backs. These value back nationals aren’t particularly special but some nationals from certain banks can bring a lot of money. Out of the tens of thousands of banks that issued national currency, less than 1,343 banks issued value back $10 national notes.

$10 1902 Red Seal National Bank Notes

Ten Dollar 1902 Red Seal National Bank Note Value

1902 $10 Red Seal National Bank Note

Ten dollar red seal national bank notes are some of the most attractive and collectible bills in the hobby. The $10 above is from Pittsburgh. Interestingly enough red seal ten dollar nationals typically come from smaller banks that have interesting names. Crazy or outlandish bank names sometimes result in a higher premium in the market. Condition, bank name, scarcity and serial number are all factors to consider when trying to sell your national bank note.

Ten Dollar 1902 Blue Seal National Bank Note Value

1902 $10 Blue Seal National Bank Note

1902 red seal nationals were printed, then came 1902 blue seal national bank notes. Blue seal $10 nationals can often times be rarer than any other type, it depends on multiple factors. I’ve purchased plenty of ten-figure $10 nationals during my years of collecting and dealing with paper money. The bill pictured above is from Tiffin with the charter number 7795. This charter number isn’t particularly rare, but the bill above is in extremely fine or better condition.
