Values of $100 1890 Treasury Notes

Price Guide for Rare Treasury Notes

Year:  1890

Denomination:  One Hundred Dollar Bank Note

Type:  Treasury Note

Portrait:  Admiral David Farragut

$100 Bill Front Picture:

Value and History:   This is typically called a “Watermelon note” by collectors. We aren’t showing an image here. However, the back of these $100 bank notes has two zeroes on it that look very similar to watermelons, hence the nickname. These notes are very scarce and very popular. Even heavily circulated examples will sell for more than $10,000. Notes with lots of eye appeal will absolutely sell for multiples of that price point.


We buy all of these $100 bank notes issued by The United States. The market for rare paper money is very active right now. If you were ever considering selling then now might be a good time to take a price quote. You can text pictures to 864-430-4020. You can also attach pictures to an email message. You’ll never know what we would have offered unless you ask. Our information is always free.
