Many territorial banks had outputs in the 2,000 to 4,000 range. 1882 five dollar territorial brown backs are the lifeblood of the territorial collecting community. They were issued by virtually every territory (with exception of Alaska, Nebraska, and Porto Rico). A total of 109 national banks printed $5 brown back territorials. There are around 120 notes known to exist. That is a pretty high survival rate. Ironically though, the fact that lots of these exist is part of the reason that they are so collectible.

Series of 1882 $5 Territorial Brown Back
The American National Bank Of Salt Lake City printed 55 sheets of $50 1882 territorial brown back 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. The $50 1882 territorial brown back is a great rarity. Only two are known to exist. You have to remember that $50 was a large sum of money during the time these were originally printed, which started in 1882 and lasted until 1908 (on very rare occasions). People could save a coin or maybe even a five dollar bill as a curiosity item or a keepsake. No one really wanted to tie up $50 for the foreseeable future. There was no collectible paper currency market until the 1950s. So even if you had something like this sixty years after it was originally printed, it was still just worth the face value of $50. Of course that has all changed today. These are now great rarities appreciated by the collecting hobby.
Series of 1882 $50 Territorial Brown Back
The American National Bank Of Salt Lake City also printed 55 sheets of $100 1882 territorial brown back national bank notes. That is the same output for individual $50 bills. Most regular issue $100 brown backs are worth around $5,000. However, we are talking about territorial $100 brown backs. These are much rarer. In fact, they were only printed by a total of 25 different national banks and only about ten are known to exist! So needless to say, these are quite rare. This high denomination was printed by all of the usual territories you expect to see: Montana, Washington, Arizona, Hawaii, North Dakota, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Utah. The notes that are known to exist are split between Oklahoma, Utah, and New Mexico. So if you have a new state, then that will certainly be in demand.
