The First National Bank Of Minco in Oklahoma issued 200 sheets of $5 1902 territorial red seal national bank notes. That is a remarkably small number. Any note known to exist from a print run like that would be a true statistical miracle of survival. 1902 red seals have always been a collector favorite. Territorial bank notes have always been popular. When you combine those two factors the result can be a very valuable bank note. We are of course specifically looking at the five dollar denomination. Most $5 red seals are known to exist from Fairbanks, Alaska, thanks to a hoard discovery in the 1960s. There are also about a dozen $5 territorial red seals known to exist from Oklahoma. The design is exactly like any other third charter bank note. Ben Harrison is on the left hand side of the bill. There is a red four digit charter number and red seal. The charter number is printed around the border of the bill several times.

The First National Bank Of Minco printed 200 sheets of $10 1902 territorial red seal national bank notes. That is a remarkably small number. Any note known to exist from a print run like that would be a true statistical miracle of survival. This denomination and type was the most prolifically issued territorial note. Some can be quite rare. There is a hierarchy in terms of rarity. Red seals from Hawaii are the absolute rarest. In fact, none from Hawaii are currently known to exist. Ten dollar red seals from Porto Rico are also extremely rare, as are red seals from Alaska. The average collector is most likely to encounter red seals from Arizona, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. There were far more territorial banks in Oklahoma during the red seal period than any other state, so notes from Oklahoma are the most common. However, most all red seals should be worth more than $10,000, and sometimes considerably more. William McKinley is pictured on the left hand side of each bill. The number under McKinley is the bank serial number. If that number is #1, then you can expect an additional premium on the value.
