The Salt Lake City National Bank Of Salt Lake City in Utah issued 4,120 sheets of $1 original series territorial national bank notes. That printing range is high enough to allow for a couple of survivors, but not much more. When dealing with any first charter one dollar bank note, you can always take the number of sheets printed and multiply it by three to get the total number of actual bank notes printed for this denomination. These are technically called original series one dollar territorial national bank notes. Most collectors just call them territorial aces. Believe it or not, they are actually quite available. Around 100 of them are known to exist. Thanks to small hoards from towns like Salt Lake City, Yankton, and Denver, a collector can buy a nice looking territorial ace without spending tens of thousands of dollars. The rarest examples will certainly still cost more than $10,000, but others can seem like bargains.

The Salt Lake City National Bank Of Salt Lake City printed 4,120 sheets of $2 original series territorial national bank notes. Keep in mind that there was just one two dollar bill printed per sheet. So in this case the sheet number equals the total output of notes. Just like with the one dollar denomination, original series $2 territorial bank notes have survived at a surprisingly high rate considering they were only issued by 19 different national banks. The good news for sellers is that these are still really valuable. Prices are as low as $10,000 for something ugly and relatively common. It is possible for the rarest examples to be worth more than $50,000.
Original Series $2 Territorial National Bank Note
The Salt Lake City National Bank Of Salt Lake City also printed 2,750 sheets of $5 original series territorial national bank notes. Many territorial banks had outputs in the 2,000 to 4,000 range. You can do some quick math and take the sheet output, multiply it by four, and get the total number of original series $5 territorial bank notes issued by this bank. Only 30 banks in the country even printed these notes. Today there are only about ten surviving examples known to exist. Most of them are low grade and they are rarely available on the collector market.

Original Series $5 Territorial National Bank Note
The Salt Lake City National Bank Of Salt Lake City also printed 500 sheets of $10 original series territorial national bank notes. A print run under 1,000 will get the attention of most people. Combine that with a territorial and you have a real winner. Now here is an amazing fact. We know that 42 national banks printed this type of bank note, yet only four examples are known to exist. That population of four is split between two banks in Denver. So the question becomes, what happened to the rest of them? The easiest explanation is that no one knew these would ever become rare and collectible, so they got spent and eventually destroyed by the government upon redemption. Any original series ten dollar bill from a bank other than Denver would certainly be a welcome find.

Other national banks in Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming all issued these notes. For some reason though, the collecting world has yet to find a survivor from any of those states.
