The State National Bank Of South McAlester in Oklahoma printed 362 sheets of $10 1882 territorial brown back national bank notes. Collectors love to buy notes from such a small print run. It doesn’t get much smaller than under 500 sheets printed. The ten dollar 1882 territorial brown back was printed by more than 200 national banks, and more than 200 pieces are known to exist today. That number tends to go up by a handful each year as more are discovered. Often times the $10 territorial was the first and lowest denomination a bank received. About a dozen #1 specimens are held by collectors today, and there are probably many more still held by descendants of early pioneer bankers. Territorial bank notes are the cream of the crop when it comes to national bank notes. Most are at least rare and some can be very valuable. As always, the exact value is still based on bank of issue and condition. Something ugly from Oklahoma might only be worth $3,000, but other examples could be worth well over $10,000.
