The First National Bank Of Muscogee in Oklahoma printed 13,300 sheets of $5 1882 territorial brown back national bank notes. It is unusual to see a sheet printed number over 10,000 when dealing with territorials, but that certainly doesn’t mean that these will automatically become common. 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. More than one collector can reasonably try to put together a set. Ultra-rarities are always expensive, but often times they end up as outliers to collections. 1882 five dollar brown backs have always been popular.

The First National Bank Of Muscogee printed 9,948 sheets of $10 1882 territorial brown back national bank notes. That would normally be a very standard output. However, we are dealing with territorials, so everything is still going to be rare. The ten dollar 1882 territorial brown back was printed by more than 200 national banks, and more than 200 pieces are known to exist today. That number tends to go up by a handful each year as more are discovered. Often times the $10 territorial was the first and lowest denomination a bank received. About a dozen #1 specimens are held by collectors today, and there are probably many more still held by descendants of early pioneer bankers. Territorial bank notes are the cream of the crop when it comes to national bank notes. Most are at least rare and some can be very valuable. As always, the exact value is still based on bank of issue and condition. Something ugly from Oklahoma might only be worth $3,000, but other examples could be worth well over $10,000.

The First National Bank Of Muscogee also printed 9,948 sheets of $20 1882 territorial brown back national bank notes.

Twenty dollar notes from this series were only printed at the rate of one to three compared to tens, but sadly, $20 1882 brown backs really don’t command a premium for their extra rarity. Only around fifty are known to exist today.
