Value of One Dollar National Bank Notes

Price Guide for One Dollar Banknotes

Years:  1862 – 1878

Denomination:  One Dollar Bank Note

Type:  National Bank Note

$1 Bill Front Picture:

Description:   These were issued by hundreds of national banks between 1862 and 1878.

Seal Type:  All of these bank notes have red seals. They can either be spiked as shown above. Or they can be rounded.

Varieties:   One dollar bank notes were issued with seven different signature combinations. The Jefferies Spinner combination is by far the rarest.

Vignette:  Landing of the Pilgrims, Union & Peace

Value:  Most of the value of a $1 national bank note is based on its condition, bank of issue, and serial number. A very generic note in poor condition should sell for around $300. A nice looking note in lightly circulated condition should be between $500 and $1,000. Now, rarities have a whole different valuation scale. We have paid more than $10,000 for some of the rarest one dollar national bank notes. Please contact us for an exact value.
