How Much Is A 1897 $10 Bill Worth?

1897 Ten Dollar Bill

How Much Is A 1897 $10 Bill Worth?

Ten dollar bills from 1897 can have either a brown seal or a blue seal. Brown seal notes tend to be more valuable. Don’t let the year 1897 fool you. 1897 is just the date that the national bank formed. Despite saying series of 1882 and 1897, these were actually printed as late as 1917. So the date on the $10 bill rarely matches when the bill was actually printed. Some 1897 tens can be especially valuable. The value is all based on the bank of issue, condition, and serial number of the actual bill. Anyone who wants to buy or sell an 1897 $10 bill needs to be aware of those factors. We have a list of all the national banks that opened in 1897 that also printed ten dollar bills. Some of these banks are rare, some are common. The value of common notes is a few hundred dollars. The value of rare 1897 $10 bills can be thousands of dollars. The reason these bills are so rare is because ten dollars was a lot of money in 1897. That is the same as $540.85 today, after you adjust for inflation! You can see why so few 1897 $10 bills still exist. They were incredibly expensive to save.
